Balancing of hours between managers leaves some thing to be desired. If you are a service manager be prepared to close a lot, kitchen manager be prepared to work well over your "scheduled" hours, bar manager shares the closing duties for the most part as well. Company is going through some growing pains that puts undo stress not only on the regional but the management staffs as well. Constant selling promotions pushed onto staff. More conceconcerned with selling gift cards than retaining staff. Low pay for hourly, which yeilbs sub standard proforma nice and or quality applicants
Advice to Management
Work life balance needs reviewed, balancing of manager hours ( too GM friendly in low hours and day time shifts, and no closes) better hiring/retaining/ practices. A lot of hour felfelt there is no incentive to stay beyond paycheck.
