Pros

Very fun, upbeat job. Very flexible with schedules and understanding to all workers. Co workers are a blast to be around very family friendly. Pays well and you get 50% off of your food and your family gets 25% off!

Cons

Kitchen is dirty don't like standing doing silverware all night. Management sometimes gets too stressed and takes it out on staff. Stressful on busy nights. Bussing and doing things for servers without tip.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better plans with cleaning maybe hire bussers so hostesses aren't spending the whole night cleaning tables so we can get off the wait.

    Pros

    Family fun atmosphere, developed life long friends with employees and with guest. Schedule was flexible when needed. The latest they were open was 11 PM on the weekends.

    Cons

    Advancement was to far out. Didn't feel that I was given the direction or tools to succeed past my position. There was definitely favoritism to others in the same positions I was in, within my division.

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement, if you're willing to fight and beg for them.
    Frequent raises for Back of House employees.
    Decent business most of the time.
    They are VERY accommodating of pregnant employees.

    Cons

    Horrible, inconsistent management team; different rules under every manager.
    Long, hard hours with lots of work to be done,
    Lazy, incompetent employees are a lot of the time 'favorites' who don't have to follow rules or do their jobs correctly.
    Management [upper and middle] care more about customer satisfaction than employees in general.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus less on Vision, Values and Culture and more on policing your management.
