I went a couple of years ago. It was at the Univ of New Hampshire at the culinary school. The best part was we ate like kings for the two weeks we were there. The worst part was we were there for two weeks. You end up sharing stories with other people at your level. I have almost always been in operations and I was placed in a group with a guy who had his whole career at the corporate office. At the end he said he would never speak badly of his job again after he herd what the operators have to go through. Its not a bad time unless you are a family man....then its waaaaayyy to long.Anyone have any good SLS / MLS stories that they care to tell? I was never in management but I knew lots of people who went. From what I know, it's boot camp for management. You live in dorms, you can't leave, your days and weekends are booked solid, no family contact, etc.
