    One of the worst experiences working in a restaurant EVER !! Very sad.

    I worked at Grillsmith full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    slower paced, hours of operation are manageable and the food is outstanding.

    Cons

    Constant over scheduling for servers, no consistency financially. poor management and extreme favoritism towards " certain" employees. More like working in a frat house than a business. Many of the long time employes are rude to guests, show no sense of urgency and act as if the guests owe them something by eating there. I can see the potential for this to be a great place but it would take a great deal of internal change for that to happen. My prediction is that the doors will be closed within a year or two if something doesn't happen. That is unless Front Burner Brands just want's GrillSmith in Brandon as a tax write off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weed out managers who don't have the proper skills to schedule appropriately and to treat ALL employees with fairness and respect. The Managing partner at my former store in Brandon seems genuine and capable but the team of management working under him all need to be replaced.
