I enjoyed working for this company with the exception of how many servers were on the floor at one time. Too many.

Pros

You do have the ability to make good money provided that you get good shifts and are willing to work a lot of hours.

Cons

They do put a large number of servers on the floor at one time. If they have one busy night they treat every night like that from that moment on when its clearly not needed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut down on the amount of servers and you could also save money on labor costs while keeping your employees happy.

    Not bad, but not great.

    Pros

    Great working environment. The other servers I worked with were friendly and for the most part worked together to get through each shift. Managers could get a little frustrated at times, welcome to working in the food industry.

    Cons

    Dealing with irate customers who expect everything from you, but offer nothing in return. Tips were usually minimal and expectancy of service was usually pretty high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the whole process with better training for those helping the servers.

    Pros

    I loved my coworkers
    The work was easy
    Easy to get time off if needed

    Cons

    Management played favorites to an extreme.
    The amount of side work was insane.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because you don't like someone on a personal level doesn't make them bad at their jobs. If someone is a hard worker, good at what they do, and dependable then they deserve to be treated like it.
