Americana Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The Kuwait Food Company, doing business as the Americana Group, is a Kuwaiti food company headquartered in Sharjah City. It operates food products throughout the Middle East and North Africa region, Americana Group is the largest integrated food company in the Middle East.
Americana Group has poor management as an employer, no work-life balance, and low salary, according to a former employee at glassdoor.com
"Poor upper management, unrealistic targets, cost-cutting by firing people, no work-life balance, zero motivation, low salaries, poor HR"
Driver (Former Employee) says"Intolerant superiors, hostile working environment, poor accommodation facilities and lack of respect for the team members, no support from the team leaders for career development"
Server (Former Employee) says"Worst restaurant in Des Moines. Management will give all shifts to their favorites and leave everyone else scrapping to make rent. Rules change consistently at this restaurant so you should expect to be talked to on a regular basis. Management is beyond rude and will hang up on you if you call to ask a simple question in regards to your paycheck. No matter how polite you are or how hard you work management will find any reason to find any fault. They fired a 8 year veteran of the restaurant for “having a bad attitude” one night even though that employee had no previous infractions. They also fired another server with no warning and no reason for the fire. The owners and management of this establishment are extremely unprofessional and believe they are above anyone else. They also serve alcohol to all new trainees even if they are not at legal age to drink. They also serve alcoholic beverages to their staff on holidays including those under 21. For paying a pretty penny for your meal just know your meal was made in a microwave and your server is probably wasted. For all the nonsense in this restraint your much off working overnights and McDonald’s. Cons: No parking, poor management, poor work environment"
