    Pros

    Managers work with a flexible schedule. Open door policy. The employees are great to be around. A very easy job as a server.

    Cons

    The location is very hard to predict whether it will be busy or not. May walk with 10 dollars or 100 dollars. Never really have consistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers have improved over the last year. Very happy with management.
