    I worked at Damon's part-time

    Pros

    The employees are like a family
    The pay is good for starting kitchen wages

    Cons

    No room for advancement or wage increases
    Poorly managed at both middle and upper levels
    100% profit driven and no regard for employee needs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your staff and what they are involved in before you schedule them for multiple 10-12 hour days in a row

    I worked at Damon's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fast paced working environment so you definitely won't be bored. Discounted food during shift hours and time to sit down and eat it.

    Cons

    Restaurant jobs come with their own set of headaches but working at Damon's was a big one. There is a constant influx of new staff because people are unable to stay for a prolonged period of time. At the time I was there the management was extremely disrespectful to some members of their staff.

    I have been working at Damon's

    Pros

    Its a job in this economy. Long term employees are great. They really care about the guest and take pride in doing a good job

    Cons

    Bankruptcy has made it impossible to do our jobs the way they should be done. We can't order smallwares, we routinely receive calls from utility companies about disconnections for non payment. We are never given answers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work IN a restaurant for a week. Get out of your office and walk a mile in our shoes.
