    They advertise a lot, but don't deliver much for their management.

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
    Auburn, WA

    ProsDecent pay overall, the training overall is good for the hourly positions and learning the brand.

    ConsThe big issue is the lack of oversight by upper management on their General Managers and the "good old boy" syndrome that infests it. The store I was sent to after my training had a GM who had already been through five other AM's in under a year. When I begin having issues with the GM blatantly violating core policies my complaints were ignored by both HR and upper management. Also, they advertise a balanced schedule to management, but I personally didn't see this in the store I was at or from what I heard from other managers in other stores. For training, they train you on all the store level positions for 95% of training, but they spend very little time training you on their brand specific systems for the BOH, POS and scheduling.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop promoting your friends and family members into store level management. Its unprofessional and doesn't support your own company values.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Stepping on the little guy

    Server (Current Employee)
    Akron, OH

    ProsFlexible hours, Fun work environment, some bonuses

    ConsLack of benefits, No paid sick days, Needs to join ROC United, 30 hours a week max (due to ObamaCare), have to fight tooth and nail for bonuses that were promised.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe best advice I can give is for the management to rely on senior staff members and trust that they know what they are doing. Micromanaging someone that has been doing this job for almost a decade before you were transferred to a store does not make friends; it makes an uncomfortable work environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    General manager

    General Manager (Current Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    Prosgreat work environment, upward mobility. We have an ability to give feedback directly upper management.

    ConsLong hours, split days off most times. Working late nights, benefits seem expensive, company puts a lot of pressure on General Managers on cutting labor and cutting staffing.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
