    Pros

    Generally very busy, stays fresh and new (menu updates, remodels, specials), will work with my schedule

    Cons

    The extreme fast past and busyness can be a lot to handle day in and day out. With high volume, quality can be lost at times: Ticket times, food quality, opportunity to interact with guests

    Advice to Management

    Do not make extreme cuts to the floor in the name of numbers. Maintain consistency in upholding standards

    Awesome people to work and to hang out with. They usually have good connections!! my time working there was uplifting and sort of trippy sometimes but it was really fun.

    Cons

    weird crowd sometimes. but good experience overall

    Advice to Management

    i liked management for the most part. had good relationships with some of the management team and felt it was easy to move up the ranks there

    Pros

    It was a fun high energy place to work. They trained the employees very well. Gave you the right equipment to get your job done. They appreciate their employees.

    Cons

    They expected you to do too much selling at every table. I liked selling the menu but it was too much asking every table to donate to charity. Especially when they were regular customers who came in 3 times a week. It got to be embarrassing.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be all about making the bottom line when it takes your attention away from the customer. Service goes down hill.
