    I worked at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Higher end customers, good work environment, great discounts (40% off wine) and chance to make good money. Side-work is easy compared to past jobs. Chance to make more money by selling wine clubs

    Cons

    It's a serving job so the traditional cons. Over the past year the place is becoming more corporate. Some managers are a little over the top, but for the most part very good hands on managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the fun and relaxed attitude the job is stressful enough without added pressures.

    I worked at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexable hours, nice atmosphere, good discount, supportive staff, competent management. Profoundly clean and well organized, values good employees, and serves GREAT food.

    Cons

    Not enough staff at times, and the management can have some unrealistic expectations of their staff during excessively busy times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great if there was a way to create a more cohesive, unified attitude among all the employees within the restaurant.

    Pros

    They seem to truly care about their employees.

    I have been working at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The work load they give us is crazy but manageable, and pretty good discounts.

    Cons

    Coopers Hawk just take themselves a little too serious, which is not too much of a bad thing to the customer, but a highly stressful thing to the employees. Regular breaks are not given out unless your a double, and on the work schedule the employee knows what time he or she has to be punched in for work, but you will not know when to punch out to leave. Resturant in Orland Park, IL

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am a current employee of this establishment , and I highly suggest giving the employees Start and Finish times on the working Schedule, and regular breaks, especially if its over 6 hours of work. Heads up its workers rights!!!
