    Pros

    I really enjoyed taking care of our guests. Gluten-free menu was outstanding. I was given the opportunity to hire and train over 200 staff members.

    Cons

    Buyout by Lubys changed many things. Many of the freedoms to take care of the guests were no longer available which hurt our guest retention.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the managers at the store level to continue to take care of the guests.

    Pros

    Easy job to get, due to the intense turnover rate. They are always in need of servers. (An intense turnover rate though is not a pro clearly something wrong with the management or perhaps just not enough business(maybe)). Relatively easy going environment. If you can land a serving job elsewhere (especially not a chain) I'd say go that route.

    Cons

    Like many corporate restaurants you're overworked. 8 out of 10 times they will schedule you to work a double and aren't fans of cutting. (Requesting off does not get you far) Commonly you may work 3 + doubles in a row.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, liked my co-workers, good food

    Cons

    There was often too many of us scheduled at once that we would end up just getting cut for the night or standing around with no tables

    Advice to Management

    Once you started making us wear name tags, I felt like the product of a corporate company.

    Pros

    Managing Partner opportunities allow you to be in charge of your destiny

    Cons

    Occasionally unrealistic budgets set forth, they often did not understand the differences in customers and spending habbits from region to region

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your management team more, if you had enough faith to hire them in the 1st place then have enough faith to believe that sometimes they may know things that you don't

    Pros

    great environment, good food, awesome co-workers.

    Cons

    not much business, dirty, unsanitary cooks, not well-ran, open extremely late, very low pay.

    Advice to Management

    make the hours 11:30-10 during the week and 11:30-11 on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Maybe even close for a couple of hours during the day when they are not busy. Advertise more; put more signs on the street behind the building instead of just the one facing the freeway, letting people know what and where it is. Do not have so many employees on the clock at once. only use the absolute necessary amount, because there are usually an excessive amount of people working at once.
