You're better off collecting unemployment

Server (Former Employee) Port Charlotte, FL

ProsMost of your customers are nice.

ConsThe management is the absolute worst on this planet. Unbelievably unprofessional and disorganized. They will yell at you over nothing, call you names, and talk down to you.
Workers do drugs on the clock in the freezer. So much is expected out of you in such an awful environment. Tips do not correlate with how hard you work, considering the food is dirt cheap.

You end up taking on more jobs than your own. I had been told to do hostessing for a few hours during some shifts and dish washing other times. Those are both different and specific jobs. I'm still getting paid waitress wage (4.77) to do minimum wage (7.79) work!

Advice to Senior ManagementMandate drug tests for employees and managers and get rid of some of the cracked out workers! Create better working conditions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
