          Disapproves of CEO

          I have been working at Earls Kitchen + Bar full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          Some good people, 50% off food, flexible schedule(kinda)

          Cons

          Feel under appreciated, people who make a big deal about not being the “full time saucier” get babied and moved up the rings, basically don’t brown nose the people they’ll make you they’re slaves instead do a lot of complaining and comparing to move up. Horrible ethics and chefs/Sous’ Show heavy favouritism.

          Advice to Management

          Spend less time showing favourites. Spend more time trying to build a team.
