    I enjoyed working at this company, but only because I enjoyed my clients; sometimes, upper management is difficult

    I worked at Buffalo Wild Wings full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent clients that often tip well
    Made tons of money in four to six hour shifts

    Cons

    The management can be moody, causing lousy shifts
    They can be difficult to work with, as far as scheduling is concerned

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop letting your home life affect your work life. Just because you've had a bad day, does not mean I want one as well

    Pros

    Management that cares for their staff.

    One manager thinks she owns the place and to be quite honest she sucks at her job she's awful to her staff she's awful to her customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to corporate… Weed out bad management in place for management who work their butts off and do for the company as they do for their staff and Customers

    Pros

    Tip share is low (because you do all of your own work, no bussers). Customer base usually tips well depending on how good of a server you are. Easy to learn menu. Great busy, loud atmosphere. SPORTS!

    All managers (Feb 2015) are good hardworking people, certainly not lazy ~ very good quality for managers to lead from the front.

    Cons

    Lots of side work, which could also be a pro as time goes by quickly when busy. Some nights you will work until 2 - 2:30am if busy until close (1am) and still have 90 minutes of outs to do.

    I worked at Buffalo Wild Wings part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very fast paced, customers are very easy going and there to enjoy sports therefore are fun to wait on. The food is really great! And there was room for moving up from cashier to server, and server to bartender

    Cons

    Late hours always if you are working night shifts. Games normally come on later too and then you are there late even if you are first cut. If long and late hours are not a problem then that's really all you have to worry about

    I have been working at Buffalo Wild Wings

    Pros

    There is room for improvement. You have evaluations often so you know what to work on. Promotions are easy to get if you work hard and show that it is more than just a job to you. The money is great! The hours are flexible.

    Cons

    The managers are not very excited about their jobs and usually have bad attitudes. The customers are quite difficult to deal with at times and the managers rarely have my back on anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please have your staffs back when it comes to customers behavior in the restaurant. Fights should never happen. Also, as hard as it is try to have better attitudes. Your attitudes clearly reflect in the rest of the staffs.
