Eh

Bartender (Current Employee) Peoria, IL

ProsLike any restaurant job, okay way to make decent money while your in high school or college.

ConsBad work environment. Poor management. Bad hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire people with Business Degrees to run the restaurants, not Culinary certificates. The store I worked for had absolutely no strategic management, and they made unintelligent decisions that drove the store I worked at into the ground. Terrible work environment. Sad, because the place used to be a great place to work; now, I'm looking forward to getting out as soon as possible!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
