    Worst Management to work for

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Banquet Server  in  Ontario, CA
    Former Employee - Banquet Server in Ontario, CA

    Pros

    The pay as a banquet server is phenominal for the amount of hours worked because you receive an automatic 19% of the total bill for parties of a minimum of $150, with about 4-5 parties per day.

    Cons

    The management team is incompetent, but worse when they leave they get replaced by individuals who are just as bad or worse. The disrespect is humiliating and makes you feel less than human to be part of such a company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If Management were to treat their crewmembers as people, they would make a great environment to work in. Unfortunately they don't

    Poorly managed from the home office

    Former Employee - Operations Manager
    Former Employee - Operations Manager

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere. Pay is above average for the industry, except for servers who rely on tips. There isn't enough business for most servers to make a livable wage. Bartenders do pretty good, but would do better at a night club or chain restaurant.

    Cons

    Blame it on the economy or poor management, business is dying fast. Little communication from the home office. Can't seem to find a direction. One day they're focusing on the restaurant and bar, the next they think bringing in new games will drive business. They can't figure out who their target customer is. Store managers believe in the concept, but can't figure out what the home office is thinking most of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is the service industry. You're front line staff is your most important asset. Treat them as such and you'll get better results.
