Pros

Great work/life balance, the company is great at supporting vacation time and family time. The discount is better than most, and who wouldn't want to work for a company that makes resort wear?

Cons

There is too much upper management, too many VP's. It's quite top heavy, and some management is slow to give praise where it is due. There are also some terrific managers, but it's a mix.

Advice to Management

If you ask people to work twice as hard (less people doing more work), that is fine, but reward them financially and with praise when it's due.

    Pros

    Pay is that of a typical high end retail company. You are given the opportunity to move up quickly in the company if you are willing to relocate. This is possible as many of the employees at the locations are not "bread winners" and are typically retired. So if you give 2 snaps you are likely to move up into managment quickly.

    Cons

    Relocation typically required to be a store manager. Small company and once someone gets a store manager position, they typically keep it for life. Only ones that go are the ones that are fired.

    Advice to Management

    The reviews are bogus. I understand you guys want commitment, but when you tell someone who is retired and just working for the heck of it until they ddie, dont tell them to increase sales.

    Pros

    The restaurant managers are great! They're friendly, never unrealistically demanding, and will help you out if you need a shift covered or need the day off for whatever reason. They care about the guests and developing relationships with the regulars, which helps them coming back.

    Cons

    The trouble is not a whole lot of people even know that Tommy Bahama has restaurants. I can think of many many nights when we've been super slow, while the restaurant next door has an hour wait. What are they doing wrong?

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what the guests WANT, not what you think is good for CHANGE. Change isn't always a good thing, especially when items that sell and are popular are taken off the menu.
