    Pros

    I love my coworkers, and working with the kids is probably the funnest part of my day. I laugh all day long, and I have so much fun. We have an expensive menu as well, and that (usually) means good tips. Also, we don't serve dinner, so you have all of your nights so that's great. We also have awesome opportunities for cheaper merchandise, which is great with kids.

    Cons

    We don't have "lunch" and "dinner" shifts. We just have shifts. Sometimes they tend to be pretty long. I've had 11 hours shifts on some Saturdays, which is pretty exhausting, but still great money.
