    I have been working at Buffalo Wild Wings part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    No worries about plates or much because of the cardboard boats. Also, sports are one of my loves, and we show A LOT of that.

    Cons

    The seasons where you don't make money are obviously the hardest, for example, summer is not the best time to make a lot of money.

    I have been working at Buffalo Wild Wings (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work life. They really take care of you. They care about how you are and show it in their actions. The money is great and the time I get to spend there is meaningful and I feel I make an impact and am noticed for it.

    Cons

    The work load is a lot. The hours there and spending time away from my family is too much. The older I get the harder it gets to actually do the hours. Not a good job if your not a night owl!

    Fun atmosphere, great network of employees and managers who care. Flexible work schedule allows for great work life balance.

    Pros

    I love working here, some of the best times of my life. This was my first job and it has been great to me. Going on four years I love this place and management is awesome!

    Cons

    My biggest downside is there is not really any chance to move up in the company. That will be the only reason why I leave is because I don't have a chance to go anywhere with the company.

    Advice to Management

    The only thing I would say about management is to keep up the good work. Lately things have been tough and we lost a part of our team but we came back stronger than ever. Love yall.
