    Pros

    none, nothing, zero, zilch, nada

    Cons

    I've worked in the industry for 20 years, and this company is just absolutely terrible at every level.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to whatever your mission statement was in the 1980's or start over.

    Pros

    None. I never felt welcomed into this environment. The other employees had cliques and if you weren't overly sexually active or into drugs, you didn't fit it. So they wouldnt tip out at the end of the night

    Cons

    Everyone does drugs. It shows because while they're working they're miserable. I've never seen so many employees take such frequent cigarette breaks and sneak a drink here and there

    Advice to Management

    Drug test your people

    Pros

    You have the potential to make lots of money if you work hard

    Cons

    The company has lost direction. They don't know if they're fine dining or bat and grill. Also after you make soft leaf they terms to nor promote from within and hire outside managers

    Advice to Management

    Have a clear sense of what kind of experience you want guest to have and start promoting the people who are willing to shed blood seat and years for you

    Pros

    The co workers try their best to make it work so it was a team effort. Nice people.

    Cons

    Everyone washes a lot dishes although this is not part of the job description. In an 8 hour shift you do not get one break, no lunch or dinner. Concerns are met with attitudes. I never received my last pay check and apparently this is a habit of theirs, cheating employees. They pretend to care about their employees which they obviously do not. Some RT might be good, the one I worked at was bad. kind of like buying a used car, ask questions during the interview, make sure they know what YOU expect and it might work, once again, it depends on the franchise you choose.

    Advice to Management

    Be there for the employees. Stand up for them. And then be ready to have a heavy hand come down on you for doing so.

    Pros

    As any serving job, you get money every shift you work. Flexible scheduling. Management is involved personally & professionally. You can make some good friends.

    Cons

    Managements is constantly changing. Turn over rate is extremely high. Corporate is always giving more things to be done with no compensation. Cooks/servers/management is always outside smoking. Management plays favoritism to an extreme. The host are always texting at the host stand & rarely help out even upon request (but the servers pay them). Staff was never held responsible for anything they ever did even when going to management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing away employees who actually care about their job & were there for more than just the money! Give all staff equal treatment & base shifts and hours off of performance & not just because they're your favorite. Have staff meetings! Hear your employees a out!
