Great for college students but not for full time employees

Food Server (Former Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

ProsThey have a great benefits package and are very flexible with scheduling, for students and regular employees alike. They offer scholarships, profit sharing, and retirement plans. Depending on the location, you can also make pretty good money. I averaged about $15 an hour, or about $24,000 a year when working full time. If you are a student, you can go "seasonal" and just work during breaks and holidays which is a great perk. They pay time and a half for holidays and there is room for some advancement if you are looking into restaurant management as a career option. It can also be a very fun place to work depending on the staff and the way the day is going.

ConsYou are not necessarily treated with respect. Customers and management alike look down on the employees, especially servers, and they are spoken to like children. You do a lot of work for the money you make, and it increases as management expects the people they pay the least hourly to compensate for cutting back other employees, i.e. greeters and dish personnel. Oftentimes management does not listen and does things that do not make sense, and are not sensitive to the needs of servers.

Overall, moral can be very negative and coworkers are often very moody. It can also be very stressful for not very much money, but that is probably true for all jobs in this category.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your servers!! They are the sounding board for what the most important people in the restaurant think - the customers! Servers want customer satisfaction the most out of all employees in the restaurant so use them as a sounding board as to what could be done better. Also, it is counterproductive to talk to employees like children because it only builds resentment and can cause people to actively work against you instead of being on board with improving the restaurant.
