    There's a reason the turnover rate for managers and employees is so high.

    I worked at Bar Louie full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    High earnings potential. I was making at least $700/wk fulltime (4 days) and $400/wk part time (2 days) I was fortunate to have some great shifts over my 2 years at the company and did very well, but that's not the norm.

     I enjoyed working with my coworkers. General atmousphere is laid back. I was studying business and found my experience at Bar Louie very illuminating for my studies, but...

    Cons

    ...it was illuminating because for all the wrong reasons. During my time there, they made some questionable decisions. They have made also some totoal bonehead decisions. Most of my criticism would center around corporate and regional management, but there is a trickle down effect due to very terrible hiring decisions. They make consistently poor hiring decisions. Occasionally they hire a good manager, but they are working so hard to retain and develop the bad ones that they end up turning over the good ones. It sounds absurd, but it's the Bar Louie way.

    Like many poorly ran companies, the corporate office decides to do something, makes it clear that it's paramount for the success of the company, and then abandons it a few weeks later instead of building from that success. This is tough on morale, adds confusion, and neccesitates mandatory Saturday and Sunday AM meetings constantly. It's really sweet to have to come to work at 9AM when you are coming off a double shift that ended at 330AM the night before.

    Don't even ask about benefits as an hourly employee, but that's a norm in the biz.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to your missions statement and company values...that would be a nice start. Stop the "say one thing, do another" nonsense. Most importantly take the time to think about the big picture and forumulate a plan then stick with it! Hire good people, and develop them to be the future of your company as opposed to hiring people that are CLEARLY inept and fighting feverishly to change them into good ones.
