Good Learning Opportunity

Server, Trainer, Bartender, QA/Expo, to Go (Former Employee) DFW, TX

ProsIf you actually learn what they try to teach you in training, it will help in ANY job you have afterwards. Yes, even that 'real' job you're after.
Great serving job for beginners.

Restaurant managers get a lot of flack, but they do really well, considering what is expected of them by the company. They are basically adult babysitters.

ConsTurn and burn atmosphere. Don't expect to make 20% at every table (some stores are exceptions to this rule..). Instead, keep your section flowing, so that you can make the most of their excellent branding.

It's hard not to get caught up in the negative attitude.
Note: NOBODY owes you a 20% tip. If you didn't make good money on one table, try to make it up on the next one.

Advice to Senior ManagementMandatory meetings at 7am are silly. Find a better way to train and communicate with your staff.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
