    I worked at Barneys Beanery part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The environment is energetic, and everything is pretty straightforward in terms of what i needed to do as a host. It was a good part-time job for the summer. You also get a discount on the menu items.

    Cons

    No clear way to move up from being a host to being a waitress. Also, worked kind of long hours on my feet. Mosty just a typical experience as a hostess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take it easy, and relax.

    I have been working at Barneys Beanery full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great ownership I learned a lot of what I use and apply today from the Barneys ownership. Fast paced and keeps you moving. As a manager you are treated with respect by the higher ups, they take care of you and listen. I would recommend this job for someone interested in restaurant ownership/management.

    Cons

    Late nights, make sure you ask for a mix of shifts. Coming home at 4 am every night gets old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring good people and treating people great!

    I have been working at Barneys Beanery full-time

    Pros

    Free parking
    Free meals
    Good bonus
    Co-workers are great

    Cons

    No work life balance / horrible quality of life
    No benefits
    You need to cover your shifts before you can go on vacation. ( I had to cut my vacation short because i couldn't cover all of my shifts).
    You must work Christmas and all other holiday's
    No support during your shifts
    Horrible support from upper management
    HR doesn't listen or care about the managers
    No manager training program, (I spent 5 days training with a floor manager before I was running a shift)
    You get written up for hitting overtime, even though you are scheduled 9-10 hour shifts.
    Upper management will come in and bark orders at you instead of helping

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get upper management that can help and support the managers.

    I have been working at Barneys Beanery

    Pros

    The money can be really good and the people working with you are pretty cool. It's a great way to meet new people of you are new to the area. There isn't much of a dress code, which is nice.

    Cons

    Long hours, and rude customers. If you can't handle that, then it's the wrong place for you. The menu is long and unnecessary. And you pretty much have to work on the weekends to make any money, but that goes for all service industries.
