    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training classes should be taken a little more seriously. It's important that all servers should know almost every menu item before getting on the floor. I have had other serving jobs that actually took the time to work with everyone in the server class in order to make sure we were learning the menu as well as the POS. Whenever I'd ask for help, it always seemed as if there were an issue.

    Pros

    great company in terms of promoting from within. Good company to grow with. Opportunities are available if you work towards them.

    Cons

    the company has changed ownership and the new team seems to be more concerned with the companies success than their employees success and happiness. They seem to have reduced us all to unimportant, expendable numbers. The original company belief that happy employees make better employees seems to have left with the original owners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat your team members as important and valuable, respect their feelings and opinions. Listen
