Pros

Great benefits, great people, exciting environment. Much room for advancement throughout the company. If you are a team player and strive for the guest experience, you are greatly rewarded.

Cons

Very long and late hours. Other than that, one of the best companies and people you could ever work for.

    Current Employee - Bartender in Peoria, IL

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Bad work environment. Poor management. Bad hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire 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!

    Pros

    Lots of time off, good company ethics flex schedule, good employee screening process, benefits first day, freindy support team

    Cons

    Desperate, dying brand that has seen it's day. Too many coupons bring in bad crowd to have to deal with, complicated, senseless menu

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell off units to franchisees, go back to basics with menu, stop trying to be fancy restaurant and be who you were
