    Inconsistent pay at times, but overall good income for college students

    Server (Former Employee) Chapel Hill, NC

    ProsAfter working there for about 6 months, I started getting better hours and busier sections and more often than not made at least $100 a night. Other staff are friendly and helpful for the most part. Generally the managers were willing to work with my schedule and were very flexible.

    ConsDrama, managers could be impatient sometimes, some times $0 tips because of the type of people that come to the restaurant, and many times we were over staffed because it is difficult to gauge when the restaurant will be busy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet people go when we are not making money instead of keeping us there for minimum wage.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

     

    Management was lacking

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe company doesn't really care about you, but if you take initiative you can promote yourself with the clientele and get loyal customers.

    ConsManagement is all over the place and lets the power of the position go to their head

    Underachieving corporate structure

    Department Manager (Former Employee) Arlington, VA

    ProsDepends upon what location someone works at and the volume of business, employees can make a lot of money. However, they also need to work a lot to make reasonable living

    ConsThe structure is not like in every other restaurant. There are a lot of "bosses" and involvement from different factors. Manager, General Manager, District Manager, Regional Manager etc. They all have different inputs on how the business should be run and how problems should be solved, however their views are mostly unhelpful. There is a lot of stress involved if someone works at the 'busy store.' Managers hired I usually people with no degree, mid-age and are not set for the environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be clear view on who does what. HR should hire, young, educated and motivated people that are willing to work hard under stress and do not practice: 'I am above you attitude.' Very few managers that I met were actually motivators.

    Not busy

    Waitress (Current Employee) The Woodlands, TX

    ProsFun, laid back environment
    Easy to trade shifts with other employees

    ConsManagement picks favorite employees that consistently are assigned better shifts/sections/etc.
    Food is slow getting out to costumers

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome managers are great whereas others can't and don't even try to relate with the employees. Also, the servers compete with each other, often making the work environment almost cut-throat. Why not encourage your serving team to act as a team?

    A company to pad a resume not to make a career with.

    General Manager (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA

    ProsThe involvement in the operations and freedom of action available to mgmt. Being involved in the community with the position. The ability to create and execute ideas with certain levels of freedom.

    ConsLong hours, very little career growth, very poor time management from a corporate view. A corporate philosophy that is taken from the current management book of the day and a belief of repeating terms from the books will make people believe them. Instead of creating a true culture that is unique to the company. A tired belief in personality profiles that limit people due to what they put on a simple test.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in keeping employees instead of churn & burn.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Had better jobs, had worse. Company has no direction.

    General Manager (Current Employee)

    Pros50 hour work week is ok.

    ConsNo interaction with upper management. Also pay scale below industry rates.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow more interest at the store level. Worked here 2 years and never spoken to upper management other than 1 store visit.

    Great for paying the bills while attending "daytime" college classes.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCash in hand daily. easy menu to learn and start up within a week of employement acceptance. great during sports seasons if your a fan since you spend half your time watching the games with your guests.

    ConsHigh turnaround rate for not only hourly employees but management as well. slow, slow, slow afternoons so good luck making rent if your stuck with daytime shifts in the dining area prior to 5.

    Advice to Senior Managementif an hourly employee is interested in pursuing management then better communication and opportunities should be opened if the employee is a qualified candidate. had to pursur MIT myself by paying out of my own pocket to apply with a training store 3 hours away.

    Good place to start out

    Department Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsThis is a good place to start your carrier as a manager, unfortunately they tend to only hire managers with experience.

    Consthe higher you go up the chain the more out of touch the managers seem to be with how a restaurant stays successful. The corp policy start to make it more and more difficult to satisfy the guest. Too much time is spent dealing with the needs of the corporate office.

    Advice to Senior Managementremember who you really work for and whats important to those people.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
