Gary is an ahole who is ruining Max and Erma's with his misguided ideas and lack of restaurant operations knowledge. It's too bad.

Why would you write something like that about anyone. It might be true what you say, but in your righteous mind how could you speak ill of another individual whose trying to do their job.

Gary Rienhart and his so vainly named, G&R Aqcuisistions are a bunch of idiots. The people responsible to for running the company do not have restaurant experience. Gary has most likely never been a single one of his restaurants. They are turning there backs on the people who built the company to what it was. Without the veterans and experienced staff they will amount to nothing. YES...M&E had made some mistakes in the past but were making intelligent choices to build sales. Now...the market that I work in has just been purchased by Samir Saleh. Look that name up. If you are anywhere near Detroit you will see that he was involved with La Shish Restaurants which closed in 2006 due to A FEDERAL INDICTMENT on tax evaision and money laundering. The money was funding terrorist activities in afganistan. Wow great choice for managment. Samir Saleh now operates the entire Michigan market of Max & Ermas which aslo includes Toledo. These people are as brilliant as Gary Rienhart himself. One man has not worked in restaurants for over 18 years... a little has changed in 18 years. Another person has managed multiple pizza locations. Again no experience in full service casual theme restaurant. We also have not idea of what is going on or who we report too. Samir says that there is not more corporate office and we report directly too him but when Max & Ermas did not have the money to pay our paychecks Samir Saleh directed us to the corporate office. These people are so awesome that hey cannot even learn the names of the people in their restaurants. Really? My name? These people truly care about nothing but money and don't care who they piss on as long as they get paid. I loved Max & Ermas and loved my job with the company but these people have completley destroyed Max & Ermas.
Samir Saleh = Garbage
Marie Brown = Garbage
Jerry = Garbage but very nice
2 others who we have not even met.

I think maybe you should look for a new job, not sure why you would want to work for that crappy restaurant anyway. Priced to high, quality too low.

Yeah I have really noticed a drop in quality and service over the last year. I don't go there anymore. Can't believe they didnt pay you, did you ever get your money?

If you look it up, Samir was a franchisee, not involved with the issues of the owner. The owner split town and left everyone else holding the bag, including his wife, who I believe went to jail for his issues. Pretty slanderous comments for someone that doesn't have their facts straight. Hopefully you have found a new job by now. Not doing Max & Erma's any favors with your attitude.

Unless you have worked in the "Office" of any of these stores you do not know what is and has gone on. And yes our first paycheck was "delayed" but anyone who had any bounce fees or anything like that because of it was to be given that money back. For the person who said someone was a scammer because of another site saying they worked at another store, well let me tell you about Max & Ermas...many and I mean many people will work from store to store, depends on who needs what. They even ship frozen food from one store over to another, its not a big deal.I personally worked at 3 different ones with one being my "home store" and yes I did do office work. But what people are saying is true, A LOT of jobs have been lost or hurt very bad with this change. Before any of you "HATERS" say anything, I did leave.
