The restaurant was not very busy near the end of my employment there, leading to less money in tips.

    Pros

    Got paid daily.
    That's pretty much it.

    Cons

    Pay was way to low for a bus boy doing literally everything while the servers and hosts got to laze around
    Got treated like crap there
    The managers are cold to the bussers
    Stuck there until EVERYONE left then you get to start your side work, can't leave until you're done (Got stuck there till 3 one time)
    It was just a borribe experience overall I would NEVER work there again

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some new management.
    Stop using the bus boys as slaves.
    And Dude for real get the servers to work!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
