Not the best, not the worst place to work.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
AFC is the industry leader in providing franchise sushi operations at grocery stores, colleges/universities, corporate campuses, etc. in the United States. It's an honor to have worked for a company that set the standard in this industry and has a presence in most communities from Alaska to Maine. There are many long-tenured employees in the Corporate office, which speaks to its ability to retain talent. It has provided many opportunities for immigrants or first generation individuals who are relied on to provide support services to the culturally diverse group of franchisees. For the most part, everyone was pleasant to work with and made going to work enjoyable. There are some challenges with limited growth opportunities and movement within the organization. Often times tenure is rewarded over ability, and you end up with some talented employees "stuck" with no chance to develop or advance their careers. Many processes are still very manual and paper usage is out of control. Computer applications are VERY old and outdated - for example, they are still using a database that was created on a Windows 97 platform and often caused problems when updating Office 365 apps. You have to literally jump through hoops to get a second monitor.

Pros

100% Company paid Medical/Dental/Vision for individual coverage, annual bonus.

Cons

Not many opportunities for advancement, office is in an older building and they are running out of space, exempt employees are required to clock in/out with limited flexibility or work from home options, technology needs a major upgrade.

Franchises hire sushi chefs, rarely see afc corporate.

Menu is simple, easy for a green sushi chef. No cooking except rice, and reheating fully cooked hot food. Franchise is your boss, they are human, you work for them, they are all different. Afcfc employees can tell you to change sushi plating me when the franchise is back you do what they say. Easy job, feed people, yet the company itself needs a lot of help to help their franchises that are less experienced no incompetent.

Pros

Free sushi

Cons

Sushi team

It’s ok as a stepping stone or in between job

Great people. No room for advancement. Employee and management relation is a one way road for the most part. This could be a very suscessful company but the majority of management do not see the CEOs / owners vision.

Pros

Get to meet new people constantly.

Cons

Large employee turnover.

Sushi bar, making rolls and nigiri

First I would get ready for the day, making rice, getting all the ingredient. Then make enough rolls and package a lot of sushi before a lot of customers come in and purchase the sushi. After all the sushi is out to purchase, then it's about keeping the place clean and keep the company image. I learned to quickly make sushi, packaging, and always keep the place clean. Managed employees or supporters to cooperate efficiently The hardest part of the job was sudden order from the customer that required a large party tray size sushi, especially during holidays when it was busy. Most enjoyable part of the job was preparation for customers, making sushi, and packaging the rolls/nigiri.

Work as a team

- this job helped me gain so much customer service experience because everyday I talked to more than 200 people and introduced our product. Our product is freshly made sushi package and it is hard to change customer's stereotype about sushi, but finally, through my hard working, more and more people were gradually accepting our products.

Good working environment
