    I worked at Elephant BAR full-time

    Pros

    Decent Pay, but like most corporate employers, they will promise you the world to get you to do what they want, but very rarely follow through. Tight knit when it comes to staff though.

    Cons

    Will grind you to get every penny out of your salary. Ask you to do things and add tons more responsibility with no compensation

    I have been working at Elephant BAR

    Pros

    always busy, good way to make fast cash. But it gets old cause serving doesn't get you anywhere and your not able to move up with that position cause your limited to what your able to do so one one can notice you.

    Cons

    hours are not guaranteed. and your minimum wage isn't much for how much this company expects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean more. Dirty always.

    Current Employee - Restaurant Manager  in  San Francisco, CA
    Current Employee - Restaurant Manager in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Elephant BAR full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Extremely dedicated training department and support from all areas, including other restaurants inside and out of your district. Home Office is located in SoCal and I am in NorCal, yet the President and VP are both constantly touring and visiting. Its nice to know the VP and the CEO know you on a first name basis.

    Cons

    Grinding hours and accountability to situations that are, sometimes, out of your control. Eleven hour shifts are the standard, and all holidays (Except Christmas and Thanksgiving) are mandatory to work. Menu changes constantly and expected to know all food front and back. Most time on shift spent swiping servers for coupons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your managers time worked. Even if they are salary, the majority feel over worked.

    Typical corporate restaurant with emphasis on upscale quick service. I worked here for two years.

    I worked at Elephant BAR

    Pros

    The best part of working here was the laid back environment and free food

    Cons

    Some of their policies were counter-productive. When I worked there you had to have a manager split the check for you, and finding a manager could be difficult on a friday saturday night.
