    ConsWorking with lots of girls there is always drama. Getting paid 2.13 an hour was not fun even if you got tips. Working long hours on sporting event days

    I enjoyed working there.

    Hostess/Cashier (Former Employee) Frankfort, IL

    Prosbiannual reviews for raises. opportunities to earn extra money by training

    ConsFelt some employees weren't trained properly. Because everyone has different ways of teaching others, I believe only a select group of people should be allowed to train.

    Whats not to love? Wings, Beer, Sports. Who needs more?

    Guest Experience Captain (Current Employee)

    ProsAlways fun, especially if you like sports and wings and beer. Great team vibe, and generally good people. You always feel supported by management and the whole company really. Hard work is rewarded, although it never really feels like work.

    ConsOften gets busy, but if you remain cool under pressure this is no problem. Be prepared for chaos during big games and play offs.

    great place to work

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee) Jefferson City, MO

    ProsAll of the T.V.s made it a great place to be

    ConsThe only problem with the one I worked at was the Regional Manager was not a people person. He was to good to talk to hourly employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe franchise I worked for needs a better training program. A new R.M that cared would help a lot.

    It was a good experience

    Hostess (Former Employee) Augusta, GA

    ProsIt's employees are friendly and hard working. Everyone works together and none try's to over step each other. They work as a team.

    ConsI didn't have a bad experience there, considering the fact that I only worked there for two weeks. It's the only work experience I have but it taught me how to associate with people in that field.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.
