    I have been working at Egg Harbor Cafe part-time

    Pros

    hours of operation 6:30-2:00 pm. Average hourly wage/tips $20-$30/hour- depending on the day. No work to take home as a server. Great opportunity to move up into management- which is great pay.

    Cons

    Corporate headquarters took away 401K, then a savings plan- no benefits
    Feet and legs will be sore- you work hard, physically- exhausted by the end of the day. Very fast paced, must work well as a team, must run food and keep busy or you will not be liked by your co-workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Family run operation, some family members may not have great integrity- communicate with other managers to get the low down.

    I have been working at Egg Harbor Cafe

    Pros

    The hours are the best for the restaurant industry. Pay is good in the beginning. Friendly co-workers that are all willing to help.

    Cons

    Don't expect any type of raise after they start you out well. Benefits are so-so and only for a chosen few. Run off the next new idea rather than thinking things through.. Could save money if they thought rather than only reacting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your long term employees. Stop trying to get all the gossip. What happens at egg harbor stays at Egg Harbor.
