I worked at McCormick & Schmick's part-time (less than an year)Pros
The clientele that comes to dine usually has a lot of money to spend - making it easy to upsell food and drinks. Usually at dinner, a couple won't be able to pay any less than $70. You can really raise the price if you sell an appetizer, entrees, drinks, and dessert. You have potential to make good money.Cons
Customers are okay. Usually stuck up because they're rich enough to eat at the place, which doesn't bother me.
My serious problem is with the management. It doesn't matter what your sales are like, as long as you can sell Landry's Select Club cards. You might as well sell your soul. If you didn't sell four a month, you would get written up. Absurd. An employee who sells LSCs often was caught drunk on the job, but management turned a blind eye because of his LSC sales. If it would've been anyone else, they would've been fired on the spot.
They have a strict "no outside food or drink policy", but they make you PAY monthly for an employee discount??? I had a manager throw out a cup of coffee I brought in for myself because of the policy, but I've seen her bring in leftovers plenty of times.
I wouldn't recommend that anyone work here. Everyone I know who is still there is trying desperately to get out.Advice to ManagementAdvice
1) Give employees incentives to sell LSCs besides the fear of being fired
2) Hire managers that respect their employees
3) Allow servers to bring in their own food.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookDisapproves of CEO
