    Pros

    Ease of work, the ability to remain fairly mindless. Stores tend to be small, making workspace efficient. There are not many positives that stand out.

    Cons

    Low-quality management and staff, low tip averages, clientele. Lots of product advertising exaggerations from corporate. Stress level at work. Advancement is not as prolific as it is supposed to sound. Poor decision-making from management.

    Pros

    It was a great place to work when the team was fully staffed and the management wasn't so worried about their labor control.

    Cons

    Management was very negative and rude and it was very very uncomfortable to approach them for advice or help.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging, take advice from your employees and listen to ii. Also, they really really need to replace the CEO it is a shame this family owned company went down hill so quick under the command of Steve Davis he took away so many employee incentives such as gifts for long time employees which, is one way he does't really care about his employees all he is concerned about is the money and greed.

    Pros

    The hours that are available to work, and the money is good for the time and effort you work there.

    Cons

    Filled multiple sexual harassment claims, nothing done about it, and still hasn't been handled.
    Overworked, and treated with disrespect.
    Terrible management.

    Advice to Management

    Value the time and effort employed put in for the restaurant and do not treat those that have stuck around like trash.
