  • Mariano's Management: The culture between labor and store management must be be changed. I have been told from managers that "This is a new day" we want to move forward also. Talk is cheap however I'll give Mariano's the benefit of the doubt and assume this is happening. 1) Let's REALLY train these new employees. Customer service minimizing any customer wait time, product knowledge, cases full of product, shining windows, dazzled chrome, clean scales, knowledge of equipment including cleaning of the grill and exhaust hood, knowing how to open, how to close, how to handle high volume high velocity, knowing the importance of temp control and FIFO to reduce shrink, sanitation, and cross contamination, the importance of logs i.e. the grinding log, sample, sample sample, bacon cooking in the A.M. especially weekends. Pre-cleaning and cooling of TFM's 2) Let's take advantage of the 90 day probationary period. 3) Let's really prove we're a team. I wouldn't ask another employee to do anything I won't do. 4) If I feel someone is really getting it and helping to put up big departmental numbers I'm going to fight for that individual to level up....Forget the politics. 5) If it isn't broke don't fix it except for job promotions and transfers. The cohesiveness of a team especially in meat and seafood is an absolute as is all departments. Good Luck going forward Mariano's. Tom
