    Stepping stone server

    Food Server (Former Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsAs long as you can be trained properly, the team atmosphere works great.

    ConsTraining and accountability is not quite up to the standards they promote

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter team building between FOH and HOH

    An onerous experience.

    Every Job (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsCan be a fun place to work. Free soda.

    ConsPolitics. Don't expect regular promotions based on skill. What do you have to offer outside of work for me? How cheap will you work for. Expect to be treated like Gladware, we've got to protect The China.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey don't need any. Its all about profits. For themselves and shareholders; oh that's them too.

     

    Okay

    Its okay

    Server (Former Employee) Kilgore, TX

    ProsFriendly environment
    Knowledgeable management
    Fair
    The management was descent, the co workers were nice, the hours were typical restaurant, they did have descent benefits for a restaurant job,

    ConsTakes to long in training to make it to server. They wanted you to food line for almost 3 months and at that wage it just isn't technically possible. They do not care about work and life balance at least the managers at the time did not.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen when interviewing people

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Great job for quick cash

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPlenty of locations and hours to work at if you live in a major city. Depending on the management team its a great work environment

    ConsIt's hard work, and a lot of the times you are under appreciated for what you do.

    ProsGreat felixability. Awesome co-workers. Management is fair for the most part. Not open on Thanksgiving or Chridtmas

    ConsThey tend to hire a lot of people and that cuts into your hours. Some of the customers are rude and don't tip. Late hours

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more and realize we deal with the customers a lot more than u do.

    ProsNice work environment, good tips if you work in week ends. Flexible schedule, hours that work for you!Overall a positive experience if you like this type of job.

    ConsLong hours where you have to stand all the time during your shift, rude customers. They expect you to work really hard, no breaks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSet more reasonable goals and allow breaks for more than 4 hours shift.
