    Pros

    Super flexible scheduling, 9 "sick days" that can be any type of off time for any reason per quarter, great staff, amazing managers (differs per location), 25% food discount at any BWW and 50% before and after a shift, sports on two dozen screens making work fun, team is incredibly organized and know how to do their jobs well, incredibly lucrative if done properly.

    Cons

    Can't drink at the establishment you work at, pay can sometimes fluctuate based on business, very mentally and physically exhausting work, some team members are younger people (17-20) making drama a possibility, however, rare as we all hold each other very accountable for workplace attitudes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    to be blunt, nothing. Very good job. 10/10.

    I worked at Buffalo Wild Wings

    Pros

    The coworkers are phenomenal, everyone gets along great and we have a lot of fun. It's also great to interact with all the customers.

    Cons

    Management was unorganized. Rarely did they attempt to work around your schedule. You turn in an availability telling them your class schedule but they schedule you during the times you're not available anyways. There were many times inappropriate things were said, i.e. Sexual harassment. False promises often made, many people were told they would be promoted and then never were.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your word. Don't make your employees skip their classes because you failed to schedule them accordingly to their availability.

    Just like any restaurant job, it has its ups and downs.

    Pros

    The tips are great! Being around sports and people who love sports is a plus.

    Cons

    Restaurant job, always busy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training program can use improvement. They also say they like to move people up from within, but it rarely happens.

    I worked at Buffalo Wild Wings full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked as a cashier/greet in the company. I met a few great people within the company. The tasks to be completed weren't unreasonable. There is chance to move up in the company, starting by becoming a trainer-- generally, or at least in the store I worked at, you're either recommended to become a WCT or the managers recognize you as a great worker and offer you the opportunity.

    Cons

    The pay isn't the best, though guests due leave tips. It can get extremely hectic and the hours can sometimes become long, especially if short staffed or managers don't bother calling in back up. Fight Nights (when UFC fights are shown), can get pretty chaotic. You have to be quick and dedicate to really enjoy this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your employees that are really hard workers and are dedicated-- show a little appreciation every now and again to boost moral.
