To many head office people sitting behind their desk thinking they know what's best for each site. When it is actually the workers at each site who know their customers needs and wants. Maybe if head office visited each unit more and actually worked once in awhile they would realize what customer s are looking for, not each unit is the same, not every city is like the big cities, lots of units are manufactureries, and not upper snob office people.
Pros
Health benefits
Cons
Bad pay

The location that I was designated to was really great. The people that I catered to were very positive and happy. Whenever there was an issue with a sick call or work overload, the district manager was always ready to support. If the district manager was unable to find support, she would come in and assist with whatever needed to be done.
Pros
Great pay, full benefits, overtime pay, excellent atmosphere, amazing clientele.
Cons
Balancing the projected budget, dropping off money to the bank on a daily basis

The bosses are not professional - they do not have the proper exposure - lazy just sit around doing nothing. Family working at same location = on a power trip - they do not do much work, just walk around the campus pretending to work. The place is dirty - General Manager is a poor individual does not have good customer service. He is not a team player - just thinks for himself.
Pros
paycheque
Cons
too many chiefs not enough Indians

I had the pleasure of working with only one other staff member who got along very well. We were a great team and many customers commented on this. I always felt like an equal even though our age and experience were years apart. The work became fun having this relationship. The food was always fresh and prepared with a care that I hadn’t seen before. The customers were well cared for and any feedback was passed on...mostly good! I would work for them because of the relationships and the care and respect they provide to the customers through the food and service.

In the position of Food Service Director the position was challenging. The location is seasonal and the quality of staffing is a challenge. Company could provide more infrastructure to attain competent staff. The management team was enjoyable to work with primarily the Chef and the Catering Sous Chef.
Pros
bonus plan, meals provided
Cons
relationship with client was strained

Supervisors and managers in Dana are really kind and helpful, same as staffs.Due to the nature of the workplace you need to be flexible and change your position some times, in addition being agile is another important factor.

A typical day is busy rushing back and forth assuring everything is well stalked and calling for more food. I learned to have a voice and be open to calling out for more things especially with lunch hour rush. great lunch time we all sat together and talked enjoyed lunch together There was not much hard times working for Dana

I was with Dana/Marek for a year and a half and remained at minimum wage with no chance of a raise or promotion. Not a place to build your career. Does not meet cost of living standards. Management team remained unhelpful and only caused the entire team undue stress.
Pros
Benefits, free lunch
Cons
Must be willing to sit and beg and lick boots for your benefits and job security

If your looking for an incredibly lax job. This is for you. But if your coming from somewhere with structure and organization do not do it! The workers give poor customer service. Nobody actually does their job correctly. Managers do nothing. They stick you in a dept and say good luck.

One of the only Monday to Friday corporate dining type experiences where you can still apply your skills as a chef. You are not force fed a corporate menu and you are allowed to Express your culinary abilities and have a daily impact on your guests through great local scratch made food everyday.
