    Pros

    I haven't worked yet, but I saw the dish area. Looks simple and spacious. Although current dishwasher guy had everything cleaned already. I haven't seen it dirty.
    Only 25 cents less an hour than hard, physical labor. Plus, free lunch!
    Ability to move onto cook from dish has been a validated route many people take. Sounds fairly normal for employees to advance to higher ranks and different titles.
    Awesome orientation process.
    Looks fun, employees look like cool people, managers come off as people I'd enjoy working for.

    Cons

    I haven't worked a day to come up with a complaint as of yet. Only thing I could say is they had a couple problems finding my name in their system during hiring process. If I wasn't a person who follows leads like a P.I. than I would have never gotten the job. Call to follow up people, then show in person.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Get larger tables, I can hardly fit in the non-booths.
