I have been working at Benihana full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great working staff! Everybody is warm to each coworker. Hardly ever had any trouble working with them. The managers are amazing. They can be very strict on you if you just started but they are actually nicer. :) Oh and we get free Employee Meals which are cooked by our own chefs themselves. And we get 50% off for dining in!! :)

Cons

We have to work on holidays, Thanksgiving, Independence Day, Christmas, New Year all except Thanksgiving. The tipping system too can be a bit of a problem between the servers and the chefs. Work can be very overwhelming if you just started. A lot of people don't last for a week or so.

    Former Employee - Server in Coral Springs, FL

    I worked at Benihana full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    A very simple job and 50% off food

    Cons

    Been in this business for 10+ years and this is the most unorganized place I have ever worked. The managers know nothing of what is going on in their restaurant and rely on the "head" server which tends to act as though he/she owns the establishment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management staff should first and foremost actually manage their stores. He/she has no idea what actually goes on in the location (mainly Coral Springs). The only time that one cares is when a higher employer visits i.e. regional manager and so forth.
