Pros

The people that work there are great, most managers care about you as a person. There are high standards, but if you do a good job for them everyone gets along well and it is a really fun place to work.

Cons

The people that come in and eat treat you terrible a lot of the time. Management doesn't understand that people come in wanting a free meal a lot of the time. There is nothing we can do to please them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more patient with the servers. We want the guests happy because it results in better tips. Do not get upset or look down on the people that work for you. Most all of us are working to pay for school.
