I've found that lately Coyle reimbursements barely even cover the bare minimum, much less when you add tax and tip. I have to really want to go to the restaurant, because it ends up being more of a "discount" than a full reimbursement, and the reports are extremely detailed.
This is what really irks me about Coyle—not the details but the vagueness and inconsistency between graders. Lots of people complain that the reports are overly detailed, but if their clients want to know exactly how a waiter offered me dessert, I can tell them.
But I’d expect a company that cared so much about detail to be similarly meticulous in writing shop guidelines and grading reports. Instead the guidelines are vague or contradict the questionnaire or don’t capture important details, and the grading will vary drastically. If the details matter so much, they should be consistent!
I was eating at a Sushi place and the third sushi roll was denied.
