    Pros

    Working with great and experienced musicians who are willing to share their experience and stories.

    Cons

    Equipment is in very bad shape. The channels on the mixing board are not working properly if at all, EQ works only on few channels, input-output for stage-main board-monitor board is completely crisscrossed and even though I offered to do a complete repair and rewiring for free during time the club is closed, management wasn't interested.


  2. Poor treatment of staff

    Pros

    See some cool shows for free but most were pretty bad.

    Cons

    Would put several servers on for a very slow show just because the room would have to be cleared of all table and chairs after the show to transform it into the club for late night. In other words, we would have to stick around for 6 hours and do heavy physical labor for about $30. Also a bunch of other crazy stuff like no hot water in the dish room for 3 months so wait staff would have to wash gross silverware by hand with hot tea water for guests. Crazy bad place to work. Really bad management.

    Advice to Management

    You can't expect 15 servers to clear out 500 chairs (numbers?) for no incentive! The whole place is a mess.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, great coworkers,music keeps you going

    Cons

    Scheduling conflict. They'll schedule you to work every weekend.

    Advice to Management

    Stop buying scratch off tickets and stop screwing the employees. Of they don't like you,you're gone.

    Pros

    Wonderful people, great atmosphere, free tickets to shows, at that time we even got free lunch. All access to the venue and got a chance to look over all the contracts and be part of the negotiations

    Cons

    Sometimes there wasn't enough to do and we were shipped around to other departments, the office space was really crowded (although now I think they've moved offices) and the structure was kind of odd


  6. Poor Management, very cheap, great concept, but poor in execution.

    Pros

    Location, parking, scheduling, discounts, line staff.

    Cons

    Management, pay, lack of customer concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Hard to say. Several locations in several cities have closed. Not too sure the chain will stay alive, although the main Memphis location probably always will.
