    Benefits are good. People are great. Attention to detail in quality of food. Work environment excellent. 25% off food when you bring in your family.

    Cons

    Management a little short sighted and care about their own agendas. New ideas were encouraged but not listened to often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what those in the trenches are saying.

    In 30+ years of experience in the hospitality industry I had never worked for a company with such disorganization and lowest standards for employee care.
    Numerous improprieties going on here...

    Pros

    Good people working for the company... Bad people leading it..!!

    Cons

    Having to deal with immediate supervisors that not only can not speak English properly but much less write it, thus causing poor communication between mid level management and upper level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your COO and everyone he has brought in
    Get new regionals that speak at the very least "better" English
    at must be able to write it as well.

    Pros

    I like working a fast paced bar with lots of options for the customers. Managers and staff got along well.

    Cons

    It's cooperate and you don't get to build up the relations with the customer like you would at a neighborhood bar. It's service bar tending.

    Pros

    can not find not even one good reason

    Cons

    be ready to work long hours about 55 o more per week, short staff, most of the restaurant are ether missing a kitchen manager, general manager ,
    regional directors will make you work six day, you will no be able to take your vation time because we are always short staff, few hours for kitchen staff to prep enough for the whole day, number one goal for the company is the labor they do not care about guest satisfaction,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    consider to motivate your management team, give vacation time, treat your employees with respect, invest money on having staff to accomodate guest needs,
