Pros

Good Hours-My Manager knew that I was trying to help my husband provide for our son. So she gave me decent hours and pay..

Cons

Bad shifts-I had to work split shifts often, and Poor working conditions. We were told if we worked less than 8 hours and needed to sit, then we shouldn't have come to work at all and must not need a job...so the only time I'd sit was when I had to use the restroom, but she surely made time for smoke breaks!!

    Pros

    Company has some of the best benefits of being a server including tip share and employee discount.

    Cons

    Sometimes employees are treated as if they are very expendable

    Advice to Management

    Employees know they are, but it's not good for company moral to treat them like they are expendable.
