    I have been working at Buffalo Wild Wings

    Pros

    I liked working at Buffalo Wild Wings for the great amount of flexibility they offered, which was great for a busy student like me. It seems to be that most BWW are like this as well. BWW is the only restaurant I've ever worked at where you feel like you can completely be yourself around your guests. Nothing is ever scripted and it's actually really fun. If you like high energy, sports, fun co-workers, then this place is for you. There is definitely room for growth here if you want it.

    Cons

    Management can be a little inconsistent but that comes with having a huge busy store. Communication could improve.

    I worked at Buffalo Wild Wings

    Pros

    great place for people meeting, never once did i not want to go into work, and ALWAYS an exciting event on tv!

    Cons

    management could be lots better! not saying every manager is bad though because i was lucky enough to have a few great ones. But instead of pulling you up on something your doing wrong all the time they could use a little enlightening in the "praising" department. your always doing SOMETHING wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Praise people as much as u do telling them to work on something. Just saying.

    I have been working at Buffalo Wild Wings

    Pros

    Lots of company policies in place which makes for a very structured work enviornment. There's an answer for everything, lots of support and you are solely managing/supervising you are really working side by side with hourly employees which is nice considering you work 50 hour weeks so you can imagine acting as server/bartender/cook for any extended period of time plus managing would be overly exhausting

    Cons

    50 hour weeks, hard to take time off, everything has to go through corporate and HR and they have to approve everything, hard to make any changes that will be better cater for your store location

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give store managers more power, a little more freedom so they can do their job better
