They seem to truly care about their employees.

    Pros

    I am a server at Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant, it has been one of the best positions i've had so far in my career. Wonderful, energetic group of people that i work with including management! Perks are definitely awesome!

    Cons

    Pressure to sell wine clubs is over the top. I understand the importance of wine clubs to the company, but when the store has been in its location for three years it is difficult to get those sold. Either they are already members or absolutely do not want to join.

    I have been working at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The money and the people are great. Serving is very lucrative as long as you know how to work as a team. This is not an 'every server for themselves' kind of gig. The GM of my restaurant has been wonderful to work with and has helped me grow as an employee. Tim McEnery is an amazing CEO.

    Cons

    The company is so focused on expansion...it is losing sight of the culture that has helped set this concept a part. I believe Corporate should sit down and re examine the message in the Mission Statement and core values they unveiled 4 years ago before expansion really took off. They should also re evaluate the support they give to established restaurants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think upper management should hold an LRT focus group. They should also return to the mission statement and core values to determine where they can improve to better live up to Coopers Hawk standards. Profit is a great thing in the business world, but the real success of the company is in the hands of your front line team members and those who manage them. Nurture those relationships.
