I worked at Hillstone Restaurant Group full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

I worked for Hillstone for many years in three different stores (in three different states). It demands rigorous standards in line with George Biel's vision - he is the visionary. Meticulous detail is paid to each and every store - from artwork to music to food and decor. Management can be challenging, but what management isn't? Overall, the money is consistent; the quality of food and environment is amazing; and the music is phenomenal. Current and previous employees who complain just don't get it. The whole system is pure genius.

Cons

High volume can induce high stress but the flip side is you're making money.

    Pros

    Well managed, thorough training of staff, great experience for first time servers, lively atmosphere, cooperative team and great people to work alongside, typically good tips, friendly regular guests, lots of opportunity to gain food & wine knowledge.

    Cons

    Not too many cons: Employee turnover high each season as students come and go from the city, exhausting weekend hours, benefit system could use improvement.

    I have been working at Hillstone Restaurant Group

    Pros

    Knowledgeable staff from corporate on down the list. Generally a very engaging work environment. Friendly people and atmosphere. Solid benefits.

    Cons

    A bit demanding. Not much in the wake of promotions or moving to corporate. Sometimes grueling hours. A "no excuses" company.
