    Pros

    Flexible schedule, free food, lots of hours, some fun people.

    Cons

    Professional dish washer all by hand, paid little to no money, empty promises, under staffed most busy days, lack of communication between management, and tons of work.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through and buy a dish washer. My hands are so dry and cut up, its gross. Promote qualified people. I took this job because I was offered to get a management position. I was a manager at my last job for 6 years and have a Bachelors degree in businesses management, but.they are promoting people with no experience. You pick favorites and that's it. Our.location still has NO GM or Apprentice for the last six months and our restauranteur is never here.

    HORRIBLE TRAINING! Literary on my first day, walked in and was put on the line, after about 7 minutes of watching someone do it, your on your own. Told me their was 2 days of training, but was proven wrong. No training what so ever. Managers are always nagging if your just standing around, however, if the right training was provided, and I actually knew what I was suppose to do, it wouldn't of been an issue. Was scheduled to cash the next day with no training on a cash register what so ever, and was told to try and watch the cashier do his job. How pathetic! Needs to train their employees more!
    Be aware, they will definately throw you on the front line on the busiest days and see if you can handle it with little training.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees more!!
