The job wasn't too hard, free meal every day, sick time and vacation time that you accumulate, and management was great. The job did not feel stressful most times which was a plus and the hours were great.
Food Service Manager (Former Employee) – Colorado – January 2, 2019
I received little training and had 2 district managers each giving me different directives and then upset no matter what I did since I couldn't please them both. They offer healthy food with lots of choices but that also created an incredible amount of waste. Understaffed, so I worked 10+ hours daily. It was a new account for them so plenty of people were sent "to help" but they mostly hung out and went out partying at night while the school paid for their hotel and meals while providing little actual assistance or training. This was the worst company I have ever worked for. However, the school - teachers and students were very nice and complimentary.
Free lunch, school environment
Horrible upper management, company culture, food waste
They lore you in with great pay and benefits but......
Sous Chef (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – November 13, 2018
Once you get into the door, you will meet some great people but People don't quit bad jobs they quit bad management.
We all understand management has to follow procedures of a corporation but some are out for themselves holding back employees from moving up into the company, so they don't lose them or just plain skipping them over. I've watched so many employees get moved around like boxes on a shipping truck. Forced to take the same job with an longer commute at another location for less money. If you are a Chef stay away from this company unless you become a salary manager because that is the only way to get taken care of or be heard.
Pto, Some holiday pay, Paid sick leave, more family time
Health insurance is the worst, spend more time watching videos and taking HACCP test, You cant be inspirational here, if its not in the bad recipes you cant put it in there, Salt pepper oil is the SAGE way
Utility Worker (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 12, 2018
Sage dining was a very interesting experience since it was my first job. The amount of life lessons and problem solving methods I learned is something I take away from my time here. An average day at work is some what easy with the occasional late arrives of students who may have not received there food for various reasons.
Lead Cook (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 4, 2018
Great company to work for always giving people opportunities in life to travel around the world meet new people. They give the opportunity to meet new people to go around the world to make better choices with their life to be able to go back to school and help themselves
Food Service Director (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – October 29, 2018
SAGE is focused on being the largest independent school food service program. The hardest part of the job was convincing the school Business Officer that the yearly changes SAGE made to display items was necessary. The most enjoyable part was working with the client.
Prep Cook/ Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Norcross, GA – October 22, 2018
I worked at Greater Atlanta Christian Academy preping dishes for grades PreK thru Fifth. I also ran the commercial dishwasher. I also received and stocked according to First In First Out.(FIFO).I loved working with my co-workers, but I was not able to obtain health insurance and if I stayed, I was going to lose my husband's health insurance.
Dishwasher (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – October 7, 2018
This job appears to be good for cooks and prep cooks, but not for dishwashers and stockers which seemed to be doing a lot of work all the time. I noticed a lot of conversations/talking while I was working. I had to many bosses. No chain of command..
District Manager (LA, AR) (Current Employee) – Lutherville, MD – September 28, 2018
SAGE is a quality company with high standards and a great business model. They pay well and are fair with their benefit package. The position is better than past ones because the standards never change and management is fair and follows the rules. I wish I would have found out about SAGE 10 years ago.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – September 3, 2018
Management was not good.The manager does not know how to separate business from friendship. I had numerous task and was on getting paid for one. There is no team work. Very petty and stressful environment.
