Experience varies by location, upper management is clueless, but a good starting place to work

Pros

Coworkers are great, so are the managers at the store level. Schedule flexibility is excellent and the product itself it great.

Cons

Guests can be abusive. Management can be disorganized sometimes, leading to chaos. No real structure of how things are done.

Advice to Management

Listen to your store level managers and employees, we are on the front lines, we know what our guests want.

    Pros

    Consistent, well communicated expectations. Salary range is reasonable. Lots of support from the corporate office when needed. I have an amazing staff and they work very hard for me. Our shifts are smooth and full of teamwork and positive energy. I love my regulars and will miss them when I leave.

    Cons

    Compared to the rest of the industry the work hours are reasonable, but you always work mid shifts, so its all of the good hours. Bonus program since the our new owners, Centerbridge, came aboard leaves a lot to be desired. They are trying to squeeze the company to tightly and are hemorrhaging quality salaried managers. They want to grow the company quite a bit, but are driving away their talent. When I started the conversations among managers were about how they were going to further their careers with the company and now its about how much longer they will be there. Restaurants are all I have ever worked in and I am avid supporter of changes for the right reasons and in the right way. Sadly that's just not the case here.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting the accountants run the company.
