    Pros

    Centrally located in French Quarter. A variety of patrons come to dine at the this establishment. You get the opportunity to work on several food stations

    Cons

    The hours and the parking can be challenging when special events coming to town. Employee turnover is on an average level.

    Pros

    Awesome staff members, well-executed management, guaranteed business, family meals offered, excellent benefits, professionalism in service and menu offerings, wonderful ownership of company, management openly accepts concerns and suggestions from lower staff members.

    Cons

    Hours can be a bit ruthless. On busy weekends, don't expect to get home before 2 AM or you'll be very antsy for the whole shift. Overall, if the employee has a positive attitude, the long hours aren't bad. Some long shifts can be an awesome money-maker or a total flop. I've definitely worked a 17 hour day and only made $100, however, the opposite scenario is also true. Many employees have young children and often do not get home before midnight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps to make more effective ways in relieving the stress of long weekends - employees taking breaks in shifts, etc.

    I worked at Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working at the Steakhouse was overall a really fun and rewarding experience. Working restaurant jobs is by nature stressful, but considering this place only does lunch once a week and for special events, things like double shifts are kept to an overall minimum, which is kind of a rarity in the French Quarter. The compensation is above average for serving, and the clientele is overall pretty good, although we did get some of the drunken rifraff from the French Quarter.

    Managers were overall responsive to needs and concerns and fostered a good working environment among the FOH staff, while at the same time keeping things running smoothly most of the time. They were fairly good at working with your schedule. The Chef and Sous Chef's ran a tight ship in the kitchen. Oh yeah, shift meals for less than $1 each were a pretty sweet perk, too.

    Cons

    Because it's team service, if you get stuck with a crappy team, that can easily ruin your night. Also, because the serving staff is so large, miscommunications regarding scheduling occasionally happened. Biggest con is that there was no set closing time. On slow nights, this could be a good thing, as it could mean closing before 10. On nights with late arriving crowds, though (ie Jazzfest), it meant staying open until 11:45 catering to all the drunk people wandering in. Ugh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider your employees when making decisions like scheduling and closing times. Working back to back doubles isn't easy!

    Pros

    If you are looking for quick money as a waiter this is a decent job.

    Cons

    Management was terrible and incompetent. Kitchen staff were on the edge of mentally retarded, I doubt many were literate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to respect employees, help them become better, and promote based on performance.

    Pros

    A very reputable name of a classic new orleans company. Good food, good atmosphere, good business year round even during slow season

    Cons

    It is a large company and you can get lost in the shuffle. However there is a diverse array of workers, so you are bound to make a bunch of friends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with employees on more of an individual basis in order to address individual concerns rather than passively addressing issues to the whole group of employees
