Uno Chicago Grill Complaint - Poor Management

Review by maryann1804 on 2007-12-12
CLAY, NY -- This is not a food review, rather this is a poor management review. I went to apply at UNO due to the now hiring banner. I applied on line and waited a good week before calling back. I spoke with a manager who said to me that we could do an interview on Thursday. We set the time, he said though to call him about 15 minutes before I would arrive. I thought this was very strange. He then said to call in case the weather was bad. This again was VERY odd to me. OK, I live outside of Syracuse, NY, and yes we do get bad weather. But no where in sight has the weather been bad as of yet. The following day I do as instructed, I call as I am about to head out. I call, I get some little ditzy girl on the phone telling me to "hold on." I am literally on the phone a good five minutes before someone else gets on. His name is Frank and he is the assistant manager on duty. I go in to telling him that I have an interview with Mike at 3:35 p.m. He said that was impossible because he has meetings all day. I go on to tell him how can that be when he arranged the time and the date of the interview. He had no clue and said that I would have to call back next week. He also got into saying that at UNO they do two interviews. Right for a pizza/burger joint two interviews my ass. What am I going for a senate job or what? I told him to forget it and with all this confusion, I would not want to work for a company like that. Very dysfunctional.

Not to mention there pizza is WAY over priced and not very good at all. I have had better frozen deep dish pizza. My final thoughts about UNO, do not eat there, and by God, don't try to get a job there either.

Wait, you said this wasn't a food review and then you threw in a bit about the food. Sounds like you're bitter. If you hated the food so much why would you have wanted to work there anyway?

It is not unusual for places to have two interviews regardless of the job.

Sounds to me like you need a little attitude adjustment before applying for your next job.

If this was a review about management why the snide comments about the pizza? It sucks that they didn't get you in for the interview, but I think it has a lot to do with your attitude and the way you handled the mix up.

With the high turnover in help they couldn't care less if you work there or eat there.
