Well up until last night, i was a happy employee at Aspen Steakhouse as was my fiance. In the short time of mine and my fiance's employment at the steakhouse, we were made to do jobs of two or three other people and our own jobs all at the same time while not getting a thank you or any kind of recognition for our hard work. I have personally witnessed some unhealthy and unethical practices going on up at that restaurant. Hand sinks are hard to find around there which means hand washing rarely occurs in the kitchen or up front. I myself was a server and asked to work in the kitchen sometime while only making $2.50 an hour. While in the middle of a supper rush, the owner scolded me in front of all of the staff for doing something she had asked me to do. That is not how a manager should conduct business with her employees. I always did what she asked of me, no questions asked and was treated with no respect at all. The business is slow and i always wondered why, but now i know. The way employees and customers are treated is completely uncalled for. I have learned from past jobs that the customer is always right. Not at Aspen. The customer is never right. The only person who is right at the restaurant is the owner. I love working with the customers but regretfully i had to leave because of the bad treatment by my superior. So if you go to Aspen, don't expect great service and great food because last night they lost their best server and cook because of the bad treatment of employees. And be careful what you eat, handwashing is rare, even after handling raw chicken. Hopefully i will find a job at another restaurtant where the management cares about their employees and most importantly cares about the customers who come in to enjoy the food.

The food always sucked and customers were overcharged for the small amount they got. That place has been here now longer than I thought it would. I ate there twice and that did me in. Even the best cooks have to have decent foods to cook with.

Im sure you can find another job, you and your fiance should try bowling green. Olive Garden is always super busy, nobody lasts there bc they cant take the rush. If your willing to work hard, try there, you may like it. Good tips too. Employers have a right to be bossy, but to be a jerk for no reason, thats uncalled for. Every employee deserves to be treated the same and complimented on regularly.

Not sure why you would want to come on here and belittle yourself. So you got fired? Sounds like you would have quit sooner or later! Coming on a public form and complaining about a former employer will only bite you in your current job search! I personally will not hire anyone who speaks badly about their past employer, cus it will = a future problem employee! Boss's sometimes have to be bossy, but hire adults not kindergartners! Your compliments come in the form of a paycheck! If the owners run their business terribly, it will only be a matter of time and it will close! Sounds like God was doing for you what you could not do for yourself! Good luck job hunting!

First of all, i was not belittling myself. I quit that job and was not fired. I am one of the hardest working people you could ever meet and i showed my hard work while at Aspen. I am just bringing to people's attention how work conditions are and sanitary conditions are at this restaurant. I am an adult and should be treated as one by my employer. When employess who do less than half the work i do get complimented on their performance, i believe i should also be complimented on mine. And if my paycheck should be my compliments, then when i was doing kitchen work, i should have been paid accordingly.$2.50 per hour for doing kitchen work rather than waiting tables is ridiculous and that is how i should be complimented for my hard work? I dont think so. I am not trying to belitttle the restaurant but it is what it is and thats all there is to say.

I know paying a waier/waitress $2.50 an hour is legal, because of the tips, but it's not legal for a kitchen worker to be paid only $2.50 an hour. Ask a lawyer about that. See what they tell you.
Olive garden is hiring staff. They pay well. And treat their people really well.
And, hey, there, "where", if they need to learn to spell, maybe you should learn to capitalize and use punctuation. Don't criticize people if you can't do any better.

$2.50 an hour isn't a compliment. It's a damned insult. Try to raise your family on such pathetic shit.

People could make $2.50 an hour picking up aluminum cans and not have a crabby ass, jerk off boss standing over them. Hell, I thought Lincoln freed the slaves.

I work at Aspen myself & witnessed the incident 'Zoesmomma' is talking about. It was uncalled for to say the least. I have also been talked down to by the owner & I know several other people that have been also, most of which no longer work there for that exact reason. I don't care how much someone gets paid they should not have to take being talked to like s*@t. The paycheck is never worth it if your employer doesn't recognize the hard work you put into obtaining that check. Regardless of your job your superiors should at least let their employees know they see how hard they work for that particular company be it a factory or a restaurant.

The owner is Jackie Prom. She does talk down to her employees and is one of the worst owners. Her daughters used to work there (not sure if they still do) and they got away with everything, while the other employees would have to pick up for their slack. I was told by a former employee that she is behind in her rent payment on the building, so they are considering new management. Not too sure about that, but it would probably be the best thing for that place.

You got everything all wrong. First, Jackie knew the business isn't going no where and down along its going to close evenutally, so she sold it for some other sucker who would go down with the business and not her. So she's opening another business where she she a lot of supports from her fellow business partners. So quite talking shit because I know she doesn't care and she still keeps her head up high and making business.*(to the person who I think it wrote this)
Maybe you should do the same instead living in a town where there's nothing worth living there. Stop the drama and crap lady, maybe if your parents are still alive, you wouldn't become the person as you are now. But since they're not, you just have to pray, oh wait your folks is burning in hell so you can't.*

Did they get rid of the reptiles in the dining area? That's nasty! I saw one of the girls carrying a lizard into the kitchen. Can't believe the health dept. isn't on them. Who wants to eat with lizards???

You must be the boss huh? Well personally I hate that place and I know for a fact that they treat their employees bad. I've only eaten there twice myself and the next time I go in there, It won't be to eat. I have a thing or two to tell them. They won't last long. What goes around, comes around. They mistreated my neice. She is young and very reliable. They talked to her like a dog on her first night there. She was only there for 10min. Then they fired her. She was only asking questions about how to do her job. This was her first job. She is a really sweet girl. They broke her heart. This really pissed me off. It just boils down to the fact that they realized after they hired her that they couldn't pay her. The two times I ate there, they overcharged me both times. That place is a joke!!!
