    Pros

    Weekly pay was definitely a plus, and I started out almost $2 above minimum wage, hourly. Some of the regulars were really nice and made a point to tell the managers nice things about you. Free biscuits, discounted food. They were willing to work around my school schedule as well.

    Cons

    Managers were typically never on the same page. Rude customers whining about wait times, which were sometimes unexpectedly long especially with the endless shrimp promotion. A lot of the other hosts were in high school, with that comes a lot of unnecessary drama and rumors started about you. My hours fluctuated too often for my liking. One week I'd work just under 40 hours, the next week I'd only have 8 hours.

  2. Thought pay was great until hours were cut and passive aggressive managers

    Pros

    Paid $9 per hour which is a big step up from minimum wage which is 7.25 and we got paid every week

    Cons

    Horrible hours, worked only 2 or 3 days out of the week for like 2 or 3 hours at a time so the $9 an hour didn't seem like much, customers are extremely rude and mangers are very passive aggressive and managers picked favorites

    Advice to Management

    Choose your restaurant mangers wisely, take your employees into more consideration
