Pros

Great company and training provided.

Cons

Crazy schedules. Work over 40 hours every week but no benefits that are affordable. Health insurance is available but at a premium rate that is almost unaffordable to most servers. Lots of doubles and slpit shifts with no breaks some days.

    Pros

    Well known restaurant that brings in customers which helps employees earn money. Coworkers and local management are good to work with and make the job as enjoyable as possible. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Constantly changing rules and programs from corporate get confusing, tiring, and are contradicting. Corporate over the past decade have move more toward having servers do more jobs in the kitchen while tipping out more to other employees. They are out to save a dollar at the expense of their employees, and this costing them experienced employees who move on to better companies to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Too many coupons. Willingness to appease customers is too extreme, allow common sense and intelligence to win out over ridiculous complaints.

  2. Good Company to work for
