I work at Romano's Macaroni Grill for 3 years as a server. Sometimes the store manager is unpredictable. He is rude & no respect to his employee. It happen twice to me when he decided not to discounted my food after I clock out. My husband & I can simply go to a different restaurant & use my discount card but we choose to do business at my store where I work. Servers are working 5 times harder for $3.60 per hour. I use to own a family restaurant & I have never experience nor see many of the employee are trying very hard to tolerate this manager behavior. Regardless his reason, it is inexcusable for this manager to behave disrespectful to his employee.

If you re clock out you became a customer. Most restaurant give their employee food free or discounted without question. In Scottsdale as a local business patron, we do not tolerate this kind of management behavior. My suggestion is for you to quit & find another place to serve. The economy is bad right now & that is why the manager is acting such an a**ss.

I was a developer for Macaroni Grill & Managers are
either trained to be rude to their employees. They need to change the concept of family restaurant. Because when your member of family, family protect & support. Managers are the head of the family & they set the example or otherwise don't call it "Welcome to the Family".
Their employees are their family & most important assets. Managers do not manipulate nor taking advantage the economic down turn as a mean of scaring employee to work extra hard for as little money $4.25/hour. Manager at Macaroni Grill in six months I have work & observe that they have a very unorthodox way in scheduling their family member. They put you as on call server. It means you cannot plan your day productively because managers hold you responsible when they need you, at the same time they don't guaranty work. They basically grab you by the neck. I quit last month because the psychological & physical abuse seeing fellow family member has to put up. Simply because they need to keep their job. Macaroni Store managers are abusive.

No actually it is corporate policy at Brinker (macaroni grill parent) to discount employee meals all the time. It's not the managers business to make that decision.

you might want to look into the on-call thing. It is actually against the law unless you are a salaried employee or work "at-large" like at an agency (i.e. nursing, m.d.s in a hospital, etc.) to have an hourly employee on call and not pay them for the hours that they are sitting and waiting. Call your dept. of labor or seek legal advice!!!!

I worked for Cracker barrel and their pretend conservative approach to how they run their operation is far from he truth they disrespect their employees and choose to be very shady in how they conduct business all he way up to corporation.. I learned more on how not to manage than how to be a better manager from this horrible company
