Decent Job

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
The job itself isn’t too bad if you’re familiar with food service. They make you do online training at home on your own time and don’t compensate you for it (took about 3-4 hours to complete) which I didn’t love. Overall if you cook at home, or just have a general sense of how to get around a kitchen, you’ll be fine on the job.

Points positifs

Free meal on breaks, paid weekly

Points négatifs

unpaid online training

Horrible place to work

0 training at all my first couple shifts I was a higher position than other employees when asking questions to my boss was told to ask staff who didn't know because they weren't trained, the amount of work expected go work at a reap restaurant, they cut corners on things that you end up paying 20 plus for a bowl of cabbage and greens rice and if your lucky a bit of extra toppings worst training I have ever experienced in my life almost 2 decades of full time work never have I been not trained how to do more than one or two things by the gm do not work here

Exhausting job environment

Job duties-Ordering-Opening/Closing duties-Prep, cooking, cleaning (usual fast food tasks)- Running around to other locations and grocery stores for stock. -Overseeing staff who did not want to be there.During my time at MR we had multiple GM's come through and none of them lasted. The operations manager at the time had unreasonable expectations for the pay given and brought an insanely negative attitude to the workplace. In my 4 months there we could not keep any staff past their probationary period. The menu was all over the place and difficult to execute at times. I would not recommend working here.

Points positifs

Free food

Points négatifs

Poor management, no workplace culture, turnover is high even for fast food.

Nice

Enjoyed it good work and good pay they also have a flexible schedule which is good if you’re in school. Sometimes it can be stressful since it’s very demanding

Nice coworkers but horrible management

The management is so bad. I only worked there for 3 months and the manager changed 3 times cause they either quit or got fired. When I was hired they promised to give me around 25h per week but ended up only scheduling me for 5h a week. Coworkers are nice and theres often free food.

Points positifs

Free food, nice coworkers, easy

Points négatifs

Poor management, disorganized

Bad Company, Awful Managers, and Terrible Workplace

When I was offered a role at Mad Radish, I was super excited! Seemed like a great, local company that offered flexible hours, close-knit workers relationships, and great opportunities. If that's the job you're looking for, heed my advice: run while you can.My time at Mad Radish is what I imagine dogs that used to sniff out land mines felt like. Everywhere you seem to step, it blows up in your face. Initially hired, you are asked to do hours of training modules, without pay. That was something I was willing to overlook. Then, I got my hours - as a student, I had asked for 15 to 20 hour work weeks, so I could keep atop my classes. Very quickly, I was thrown into 40+ hour workweeks in a terrible store that had no compassion or understanding for training new onboards, describing routines and policies, or even giving you basic respect. My fourth shift I left the store crying.Despite this, I stayed on and was promoted to a Manager position very rapidly. Sound's great, you're thinking! And I thought so too... until I realized I was essentially being forced to do extra hours of work (on top of what was already expected of me - which is a lot), manage and train new staff (while lacking proper training myself) and also run the store open to close somewhere in the meantime. Needless to say, a lot of pressure for someone who wanted a 15/20 hour workweek. I also came to find out the company has a history of not offering raises with this position. Sounds like exploitation of labour to me. This lifestyle - this COMPANY - is simply not sustainable.This also does not mention the way I -

We have a fun team in the store

There are moments when we have to move fast, but it's not difficult. I like to be in a fast pace environment where the time flies instead of getting board. My team is a lot of fun and the mangers keep coming back with different type of competitions to win gift cards. I got Starbucks gift card once and then a visa card. We didn't have that in the previous workplace.

Points positifs

Fun, opportunity to get extra money

Points négatifs

none

Great staff but terrible management

High management is awful and doesn’t care about the people. Staff is stressed about losing their jobs or losing hours. Not enough people scheduled during busy hours but too many people scheduled during slow hours. GMs are quitting left and right, teenagers are asked to do 40 hours and shift managers do the work of AGMs because of the lack of one.

Points positifs

Free lunch during 6 hour shift, employee discounts anytime, flexible shifts

Points négatifs

Missing staff, late scheduling, bad management

Great experience so far

I've been working for Mad Radish for only 4 months, but it has been very enjoyable experience so far. I was trained downtown as I was waiting for my store to open. It was pretty quiet due to COVID, but once we open my store it was busy. Customers love our food and it makes me feel good. My collogues are fun and everyone helps each other. I'm definitely going to recommend this place to everyone.

Points positifs

Fun supportive environment

Points négatifs

Nothing so far

Food is amazing

I love this fresh, healthy food. It's corporate own so the training and support is better than some other places I worked before. I got a small pay increase after a few months which is great as my previous work place did reviews only once per year.

Points positifs

free food

Good place to work and eat

I had a good time here. My store was quiet because of COVID, but we still had enough to do so the time was passing fairly fast. Lunch was free, but there were also a lot of situations where they let you eat pizza with the rest of the team :)

Points positifs

Good food and discounts on your days off.

Points négatifs

Slow pace because of COVID

Love the team and the food

This place is great. My team was fun and we had a good time together.Some days are very busy, but it doesn't last long, maybe an hour or two. Otherwise is very manageable.

Points positifs

Free lunches and free uniform

Points négatifs

Mixed schedule

They are intimidating

The problems with Mad Radish started early on. My training consisted of online modules that were excessive and tedious. I spent a good 3 hours for the company before getting paid. Aside from the online portion my training was non existent. Team members were supportive but due to the fast pace and stress I felt overemlmed right away. The problem is with the management I think. They are intimidating. They would call you on your days off and don't seem to care if you have a life outside work (which is stressful). After not getting trained, upper management was harsh with my job performance only a few weeks in. I didn't feel comfortable with the work environment. I started off keen and ready to learn expecting to enjoy working for a start up and quickly realized it was all about what was convenient for management.

Great place to work

Good place to work with free food and flexible hours. I worked in other places around the city and I like the food here. The pay is the same as everywhere else, but you can try to get promoted to a higher position with better pay.

Points positifs

free food, online training

Points négatifs

high expectations

Supportive environment

I've been here for a couple of months only, but I feel at home now. My team is great, my manager cares and helps us out on the line. One of the owners is always around and very approachable. One time he brought pizza for everyone and the other day gave me a gift card to recognize my hard work. That was so nice.

Points positifs

supportive environment, high pace, opportunity for growth

Points négatifs

minimum wage at the beginning

I loved working there

I loved working there and the team and management were great. Always coming with new ideas so they can improve. A lot of comments here about how bad the environment is, but if you are the wrong person for the job, don't expect to be happy. This is fast food, not your typical 9-5 that a lot of people wanted to get after joining. I was there for over a year and I've never seen anyone had problems if they wanted to do the job or get a promotion.

Points positifs

Free lunch, recognition from manager, flexible schedule

Points négatifs

Pay until you get promotion

No Structure and terrible upper management

I worked for this company for a year. I watched upper management bully the store managers to the point of them having to take mental health leave. I think the company is trying to grow to fast without making sure they have a solid foundation. So many unreasonable things if you have a sick day your are written up and it goes into your file. I recently had a family who fell ill because they had a stroke. I missed some work and was written up for it. There is no compassion or kindness whatsoever.

Points positifs

Free food when working

Points négatifs

Upper management doesn’t care about staff

I would give 0 stars

Awful unorganized toxic work environment trying to do much in terms of menu that nothing gets done well. They preach eco friendly but could be doing a lot more in the back of house. They will tell every staff they are working on their development so they can load on extra responsibilities and never pay them more or promote the. Really high turnover the mangers are mostly new and incompetent .

Points positifs

Food is alright

Points négatifs

Culture, management

Fun staff but issues with management

Fun team of employees but management was not good. Very corporate and did not stay true to their word regarding benefits. Also very slow and long shifts.
Avez-vous trouvé cet avis utile?

Highly dysfunctional company, poor management.

Management is unreliable and downright abusive to their employees. Your hours can fluctuate from 5 to 30 a week depending on what is convenient for the manager, not the staff. This is an issue as MOST days they are understaffed. Because of this, the work environment is stressful and negative to say the least. This company also paints itself as sustainable, eco-friendly which it is NOT by any means. Sure, you get free lunches, but at the cost of your mental health. I would not recommend working here.
