    I have been working at Del Frisco's Restaurant Group

    Pros

    They offer great benefits for their employees. Even part time employees. They also give free family meals to the employees before each shift.

    Cons

    Management can be super up tight. They expect perfection and if you make even the smallest mistake it isn't pretty. However, they can make mistakes and have no repercussions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't sit so high on your horse. We are all human. All of us make mistakes. Rewards those who work hard and encourage your employees rather than discouraging them.

    I worked at Del Frisco's Restaurant Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benifits, opportunity for growth, amazing tips for those motivated to earn their money. Training was intense (happy to filter those who wouldn't succeed in their environment). Corporate management was personable and easy to reach out to, relate to.

    Cons

    Training was intense, Just keep reminding yourself "it's just a restaurant job". No discounts on their high prices food. Local management lacked responsibility for their own actions, very willing to throw others under the bus to save themselves. Management lacked consistency.

    I worked at Del Frisco's Restaurant Group

    Pros

    It's easy to pick up shifts, everyone is friendly, and you can make quite a bit of money if you know about wine.

    Cons

    It is difficult to get time-off if you don't ask for it for a long time in advance. And as everyone knows, it's hard to get holidays off.

    Pros

    shift meal, great atmosphere, well educated, affluent guests

    Cons

    managers pick favorites, over-staffing, coming into work only to get sent home an hour later

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire more people to avoid scheduling conflicts, the risk of people going into overtime, positive feedback to employees

    I worked at Del Frisco's Restaurant Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - the execs really care about their employees- they provide all the tools to succeed in your position as well as provide a truly professional working environment
    - the team works well together
    -provides 401K, dental and health insurance packages-- better than any I have ever seen in hospitality

    Cons

    - work-life balance is hard but that is the nature of the industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only advice is to upper management who need to consider their managers work-life balance a little more. They are overworked and sometimes it is obvious.

    Pros

    Great management and team members! Everyone is held to a high standard of work ethic. Lots of room for growth and flexible schedules.

    Working on some major family holidays. Nothing else to say, as I have really enjoyed working with the company and gained lifelong friends.

    I have been working at Del Frisco's Restaurant Group part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a nice restaurant and it can be a lot of fun. The co-workers are great and so is the food! With the food and drink price, you have the potential to make good money.

    Cons

    Over-staffed, hours keep getting cut lower and lower. They are making it impossible to make money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to supply benefits working 25 hours a week...at least make it possible to get close to that many hours. If you take care of your employees, then your employees will take care of you.

    Pros

    Management treats you in a professional manner. Co-workers are all friendly. Patrons are amazing. Hours are great. Health insurance after 90 days of working. If you work for more than 2 years your health insurance is free. Overall a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    Tip pool if working in the bar area. However, this could be a benefit on some nights.
