I worked at Grill Concepts part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Coworkers created an amazing environment to work with. The flow worked very well with the front of the house floor plan. The money is also very lucrative if you work in the night.

Cons

Management doesn't care as much as it could about it's employees. The owning company is very corporate, which creates a lot of problems as they really stifle and creativity, and really make working more of a scare factor than an enjoyable environment.

Advice to Management

At least in my location, have a more structured training system, as the newer employees really were thrown under a bus on their first shifts. Make your employee nepotism less obvious...

    Pros

    If you are a hardworking person it's the perfect place to work, managers and supervisors are most of the time clear and consistent ,the organization of the whole work system is well done so there is no confusion in hierarchy and responsibilities of parts. I would say that the process of interaction with costumers and managers it's pleasant and easy.

    Cons

    the impossibility to take vacation during the Christmas holydays

    Advice to Management

    I believe that the management is doing a great job hiring the right people and allowing them to transfer to different locations with better promoting opportunities, they probably should start firing people in a more productive way too, incompetency is an anchor for the places where team work is important, and Daily Grill is one of these places.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, not open on Sundays or Saturday before 5pm, lunch shifts are 3-4 hours.

    Cons

    Worst clientele- customers are rude and overly picky about everything, but can get away with anything. Management will always throw you under the bus when it comes to the customer and never show support no matter the situation.

    Advice to Management

    Show more respect and support towards your employees.
