    I worked at Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant (More than a year)

    Pros

    This restaurant had great managers. They looked out for you as well as kept their word. If you work hard it gets noticed and rewarded. This job is perfect for anyone who is willing to put in the work to clear about 600.00 a night.

    Cons

    Sometimes a political system can come into play. If someone out shines you, they become the favorite. I personally believe that means you need to try harder, but everyone has their own opinions these days with claims of discrimination. Simply put if you work hard you get good results. If you chose not to work hard, management will let you know the reality of your situation.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a dish washer that doesn't want to quit every other week.

    I worked at Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed coming to work every day and meeting new customers. Everyone was extremely friendly and we all got along great. We typically closed at 10-11pm so no really long nights was very nice.

    Cons

    Most managers where around the same age as us or at least acted like it being a lot of college kids. Played favourites to the extreme.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Company is very concerned with its employees. Decent benefits. Good environment. Fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    Dont have anything bad to say about the company.

    Advice to Management

    I really enjoy most of the interaction I have had with the upper level management. They don't beat you into the ground if you make mistakes. They make observations and let you deal with it on a store level. Very people friendly.
