A very interesting experience, I understand why it is so successful and why I don't like working for big conglomerates.

Pros

Easy to get time off since there is so much staff, it's easy to pick up and drop shifts as you like.
A beautiful view if you work on the terrace outside, which is a luxury because most restaurant jobs don't have options to be outdoors let alone with nice views. Good tips and international cliental, relatively fair management depending on who is on deck.

Cons

Very cliquey, with over 100 servers it starts to become a bit like high school and it tends to get a bit incestuous with all the staff members. Many other servers had attitude and often seemed to hate their job, this type of environment rubs off even if I didn't initially dislike it. Uniform is ridiculous and annoying.

Advice to Management

Get employee feedback more often and make the break room more welcoming, encourage the staff to become closer as a team.

    Pros

    Easy money , flexible days to work , free food !

    Cons

    Fellow employees complain a lot , and are a bit lazy ! I feel all states should pay min wage at the min , I don't agree with the 2.13 an hour in some states ! Company makes servers try to push cheesecake on guests . I feel if people want cheesecake they know we have it !

    Advice to Management

    Trust in your employees more to do the job before flying off at the handle , if people want desert they will order it !
