Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is always important to praise your employees and thank them for a job well done. Just a simple, thanks for a good shift" makes a lot of difference. Remember, it is the hospitality industry, and you must set the tone even when dealing with employees. Say hello to each employee nicely if you have the chance.

    Pros

    Very structures environment, questions are always answered, There is no gray area, just black and white, which keeps you always in the loop. Teamwork is amazing, could not ask for a better service crew.

    Cons

    There are problems with favoritism, and some of the "structured" rules they have are very hard to abide by, especially for a serving job. To get paid $2.13 an hour employees should not have to do some of the work they are told. That is what an hourly, janitor, or housekeeping position is for, but managers do not want to go over on payroll so they use servers as their workhorses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your personal life out of the workplace. Bringing your personal/ extra-curricular activities into the workplace never ends well.
