    Pros

    Laid back type of restaurant, quantity of customers, free Disneyland pass. Sometimes you get to attend free concerts.

    Cons

    The managmement and the corporate figures could care less about you. The employee, and the manager, are absolutely replaceable. They do not take into account how long you have worked there or how much you contribute to the company. If you spend years doing great, it is not acknowledged. Mess up once, its documented forever.

    The company values were great when it was owned by the creator of The House of Blues. In the past 5 years, Live Nation bought the restaurant and turned it into a pit of depression.

    Don't try to get benefits either. There aren't any.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring your managers from within, instead of managers that do not know how this restaurant runs. Take lesson from Costco and treat your staff with respect. Realize that they are important to your business and the success will follow. Happy staff equals happy customers.

    Pros

    • Good shows once in a while
    • Fun seeing regular customers
    • The brand is about southern hospitality and teaches the employees to friendly with each other. The diverse team has amazing comradery

    Cons

    Everything else;
    • High turn over of shady managers that are disrespectful and have limited experience. I hear they aren't paid well at all. Therefore, there is a team that has worked there for eight Plus years and the managers come and go.
    • Everyone is on the lowest possible end of the pay scale.
    • Live Nation is killing the brand
    • NO opportunities for advancement regardless of background and education
    • Chaotic unorganized events
    • Bad food.

    Advice to Management

    Post job openings
    Don't talk down to your employees
