Pros

50% off food.
System of how to do your job,
Food really is amazing.

Cons

No one takes system serious. coworkers cuss at each other and managers don't care. Some managers not taken serious, because if you quit or get fired they rehire you again because it costs to train a new employee. Didn't have a days off book, you had to find someone to cover your shift which is ridiculous if you know months ahead of time. You know what time you start your shift, but it's up to the manager what time you get off. so don't even think about planning something after work, your shift could be 2 hours, or 7 hours. you never know.
this could just be for the Kansas City area, maybe others are better, wouldn't count on it.

Advice to Management

don't hire anyone. they will hate their life.

    Pros

    make friends, meet great people, fun place to work

    Cons

    some people look down on others and its annoying

    Advice to Management

    talk to every employee seperately and get their feedback on things every once and awhile. giv epeople the chance to move up before hiring more team members, and give everyone a fair shot at stuff like moving up. tell the team members when they are doing a good job and also reward them for that one way or another.


  2. It absolutely depends on your specific store, but the company has everything mapped out so you always know what to do.

    Pros

    Again, it is store specific, but if you are willing to put the time into learning the system, one can have fun and get promoted... if that is what you're looking for. A professional server with the right attitude to not cause conflict can get on path to becoming a manager, given they are not a complete imbecile. The company has a very dedicated system to advance someone up the ranks if they show promise and have the desire.

    Cons

    As with any restaurant, it is a powder keg of drama between all the hourly team members and often the management. As with any job, the benefits of working there are tied directly to your personal relationship with the managers. You could make every guest/customer happy, but if you rub the wrong way with all your managers, don't expect anything like desired hours and shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Staying positive even in the face of catastrophe is the best way to get through it and sets the attitude for the rest of the time. In my experience, the right manager could get the whole team to function properly and well just by having the a positive, no blame attitude.
