I worked at Ra SushiPros
I was one of my favorite restaurants before I worked there, so I loved the food. During training, you get to order and eat 18 of the dishes (3 per day for 6 days), which was pretty awesome. I also loved serving most people, as it was a very active job and most customers were great.
Also, they offer even part-time employees benefits like dental and health insurance. It's expensive, but it's an option you can choose to have.Cons
The management at my store was very hit-or-miss. Two of the managers were absolutely awesome, incredibly kind people who even when upset made sure that their employees were doing okay. The other two were awful, and one would constantly belittle, insult, and antagonize the servers and kitchen staff, especially when he was having a bad day. I had a hard time understanding why the rest of the managers were fine with his behavior.
Secondly - though this is normal for any serving job - having a constantly changing schedule is rough. You can never plan more than a week in advance for anything, and asking for specific days off even three weeks in advance irritates the scheduling manager and can hurt the hours you get the next week. If I had just one set day I knew I would get off each week in advance (ex: always Saturdays), so many issues could be avoided.
Also Ra is becoming much more corporate, and is losing a lot of what made it good. The club Sundays are gone, happy hour prices have increased to almost the regular prices now, hostesses have a strict dress code, dyed hair and tattoos are looked down on... etc. It's become less of a "Rock and roll sushi restaurant" and more of just a corporate sushi restaurant.Advice to ManagementAdvice
