    I worked at Earls

    Pros

    Working at earls was wonderful, they have a great system for training and they train their managers to also be very knowledgeable. Very fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    The challenges of working here are the same as any restaurant, long hours of being on your feet and working late into the evening.

  2. Beautiful well designed restaraunt with a ton of potential.

    Pros

    Walking out with a lot of money. Managers are very nice and understanding for the most part. Good teamwork and sense of friendship.

    Cons

    Very unorganized. Hard to get shifts covered. Kitchen messes orders up frequently. Girls wear very uncomfortable outfits. One inch heels, skirts and black blouse. ALWAYS out of at least one or two things on the menu. Hiring process is based off looks.

    Advice to Management

    Men should be working in the longer, not just women. Order inventory a head of time.

  3. Simple salary input

    Pros

    Some of the best people I have ever worked with. Both in the kitchen and front of house everyone cares about eachother and always making the guest happy.

    Cons

    They are going through a lot of changes and I am not on board with all of them. I don't think they are all what is best for the business.

    Advice to Management

    Although you have been focused on driving sales and profit, don't forget to have fun. More staff incentives will create a stronger sales drive.

    Pros

    The staff is hand picked from the top down with a motto that sex sells. Be prepared to work with the most attractive in the Industry. Promotions are not coincidentally synonymous with appearance.

    Cons

    The flipside of this coin is that the less attractive people, if hired at all, are going to struggle to attain the prime shifts, sections, and preference.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what goy you here. The modus operandi is clearly working.
