    Work was closer to home.

    There is definitely favoritism shown at work. A few managers were sexist and inappropriate at times.

    There should definitely be more organization and professionalism amongst management.

    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.


  9. Nothing spectacular or anything to turn me away either.

    Pros

    Highest grossing restaurant in Lubbock, always busy. Always shifts available to pick up. Usually have extras on the schedule so there's always a chance you can go home if you don't want to work. Organized. The other servers are a really great group of people.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about employees, except maybe the people that have been there a long time. Even then, they don't mind screwing the veterans over. It's hard to move up to good sections as a new employee. You could do everything a great employee does and they wouldn't look your way. 30% discount, but the only times you can really eat is outside of work and between a double, which they usually have you work straight through, so there's hardly any time.

    Advice to Management

    Treating your employees, not just customers, well and with care goes a long way.
