    Pros

    Money is decent but if you bartended before going into management you probably made more as a bartender on most days. Steady paycheck is nice though.

    Cons

    They say you must work at least 55 hours a week. That never happenes. It is always more then 55. Most weeks between 60 to 65 hours. Never off weekend days and very rarely do you have back to back days off.

    Pros

    Working for a large corporation makes it easy to have a flexible schedule and fairly easy to transfer locations if necessary. The location I worked at was consistently busy and had a decent clientele.

    Cons

    Over the past several years the brand has made a move to cater to bargain shoppers, they have begun offering various coupons and discount products. This has lead to a decline in product quality and a lower caliber customer.

    Advice to Management

    To continue treating staff well and remember that Bonefish used to be a high end dining experience. The quality of the staff and the customers will decline if you embrace an cheaper concept.
