    Great Place to Work!

    Server (Current Employee) Williamsburg, VA

    Pros-The people (both FoH and BoH) are very nice, both inside and out - working there has been a good experience mostly because of this.
    -Management is very reasonable and mostly quite flexible when it comes to scheduling and hours.
    -Being a small business, Berret's can make adjustments that make it easier for waiters to satisfy customers

    ConsThe only con I can think of is the lack of a need for new managers, which limits the potential for promotion; that said, waitering is usually a temporary job anyway.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I worked at Berret's while in college to make ends meet. You mostly deal with tourists and make pretty good tips.

    Server (Current Employee) Williamsburg, VA

    ProsThe check average at Berret's is $35-50, so tips are pretty good per table. The best times to work are big weekends during the William and Mary school year: parents weekend, homecoming, graduation, etc.

    ConsThe winter season can get a bit slow when there aren't many tourists in town. Additionally, you only get 4-5 tables a section (which is manageable) so you're limited to the number of tables you can be seated per evening.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management at Berret's was extremely fair while I was there. Schedules were posted in advance on the website and they accommodated servers' needs for time off well.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
