    I have been working at Cipriani part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    For a waiting job, it pays really well. You get to choose your days every Sunday Train stations are across the street Tips for coatcheck workers

    Cons

    You don't get a job for everyday (3 out of 7 usually) They have multiple locations which are not runned as well

    Advice to Management

    Tell people what they're doing wrong don't let them make mistakes

    I worked at Cipriani full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The starting pay is $12.00 for most front of house positions. Free family meal.

    Cons

    Cipriani is a very high stress restaurant environment, mainly because of their excess in managers who all barking different demands at you instead of helping; Also because of their disorganized ticketing system. They offered no benefits to their employees at the time. The managers created very time consuming shifts, where you would work 4 hours and then have a 4 hour gap before finishing the remaining 4 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to a particular set of practical and efficient rules, teach the rules to your managers and other employees and also enforce the rules. Be kind to your employees.

    Pros

    Like any catering hall, you choose when you work, the flexibility is nice. We were (luckily) given a pay raise this season. Work is easy and I made some good friends. Majority of customers are very nice and understanding.

    Cons

    Disorganization (especially at Wall St.) No feedback if you do well. Little respect from captains even if they say, "we were in your shoes once, we're not better than you." Hard to contact anyone in booking. The chefs aren't very nice, but I guess that is common in food service. Favoritism is rampant. If the captains don't like you, you will not be offered jobs regardless of how well you work or how you interact with customers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the favoritism! There should be a rotating system where everyone is able to work in different positions and learn all the various jobs. The same group of people works in coat check, the same group passes canapes, the same group finishes floor. It is good to give us variety and it would break up the monotony of working.

    Pros

    Benefits were great. Depending on the location, the coworkers can sometimes be really friendly. The manager may invite workers to go out for a drink after work.

    Cons

    The managers rarely praise you for a job well done. They like to remain stern with you.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little bit more encouraging of your workers!
