    Fun and good work environment if you have the right management team

    Restaurant Assistant Manager (Current Employee) Irving, TX

    ProsGood working environment, get to meet interesting people, and always a new challenge waiting to be tackled

    ConsHours are terrible, The normal shift is supposed to be 10 hours but most days you average 12-14. It all depends on the management team you have. if one piece falls apart the whole system is out of order.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate the Managers and all the hard work they do. Also try and make sure the GM's are follow all policies and not trying to force their own ones on managers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I would not recommend this company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe employee discount was good, better than other restaurants. When there were hours, the pay and tips were decent.

    ConsHours get cut with no notice. The General Manager was clearly drowning and took his frustration out on his staff. He would fire people at the drop of a hat. They talk to you about promoting you and never act on it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo better prepare your management and manage labor and scheduling more effectively.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    They tell you that you can move up quickly...but you won't

    Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat training program for the first two months. Very intensive.

    ConsHorrible hours. Shift position is lowest on the totem pole. All nights and weekends.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter pay and help those who work there move up instead of hiring from the outside.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    people come last, numbers come first

    General Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsSteady job, if you have an opening shift you can still have an afternoon open for family and friends. Good food and decent benefits.

    Conslong days 11+ hours every shift. No quality of life. Upper management (RD and up) don't care about your family or personal life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf people are truly the base of your brand pyramid start acting like it. Start recognizing and rewarding people for their hard work and dedication. Motivating by telling people how bad they are doesn't work.

    Be prepared for slave work conditions

    Cashier/Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsHonestly, I can only think of a few things on why it was great to work here and those consisted of the few good people that stuck around in that environment with me. My immediate boss was great as well as a few select others.

    ConsWill work you to death. 50 hours a week. I did nothing else but catch up on sleep when not working. Crazy hectic place. Every employee had to do what in reality two people should be doing. Customers are just so rude. The way the restaurant is set up means you do a lot to get the food out, but you never get tipped. Senior management lost their brains, put on a facade when it came to caring about your "well being". making money was top concern. too bad they didn't know how to make a long term profit. wages were little for how much work you actually did, and I make that statement from management all the way down to the dishwashers. SAD.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior Management needs to stop micromanaging and let the Daily Management Staff do their job!

    Try to sign on as anything BUT a server

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood atmosphere and fun if you have the right coworkers. Half-off discount on food and free drinks.

    Cons-You'll be worked to the bone and under-appreciated. As a server you have more closing tasks than anybody else yet you aren't taken as seriously because the server position is seen as entry-level, as opposed to expo, cooks, etc.
    -Weekends and lunchtime are nightmares. The dining room is often filled with chatty women on lunch dates or screaming children. You'll exhaust yourself trying to do a billion things at once and management will still give you a hard time if one little thing is out of place, yet they won't schedule extra help because they want to save their money. Therefore customer service suffers as well as you. Very unsympathetic to employees.
    -Managers treat you like children; very little freedom. They treat employees like idiots without even giving them a chance to show they know what they're doing. Then later they'll complain that they have to micromanage.
    -You either get more hours than you can handle or less than you need. If money is tight they will push you to finish your tasks faster to save on hours, so there's even more pressure.

    Advice to Senior Management-Practice what you preach. A manager who tells you to treat guests with upmost kindness and care is hard to take seriously when they aren't going to extend the same treatment to the employees. They do the jobs you don't want to do, so show some respect. If you're going to tell them that teamwork is important, have everyone help each other rather than each person taking on more than they can handle.
    -Have some faith in your employees. They aren't stupid. Micromanaging all the time is bad for morale and is not needed as much as you think.
    -Stop being so full of yourself. You work at a bloody cafe.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
