Pros

Overall money isn't awful for casual dining server

Cons

Employees are treated like cogs in a machine, not individuals. I have worked in the restaurants for 10 years without a single write up, but was written up 3 times in my 8 months at Yard House. This is because they refuse to make exception for circumstance, for example I was written up for being late when I had a flat tire. Someone else was blocked from leaving their apartment due to a fire, which was on the news, and they still got written up. Write ups have consequences that lead to being fired so you do not feel like you have any job security. Managers talks to you straight out of the corporate handbook because they are brainwashed during their training. Also, most lunch shifts suck...I can't count the times I spent more on gas than I made at lunch. Long hours to make money, I felt like I was away from home for way too long just to work a server shift.

Advice to Management

People deserve to be treated like people.

    Pros

    Beer knowledge! Money is great, met great people. Lots of advancement opportunities and travel training allows you to go to different places and pays pretty great.

    Cons

    Servers tip out 35% of what they make!! You walk on ice trying to not make mistakes, write ups for almost anything. Training is long, but rewarding when you finish.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent! Sometimes a shift is just a shift, not everything has to be an issue. Have faith in employees. Give positive feedback as often as negative feedback. I shouldnt feel like I always have to find fault in myself.


  2. The best company to work for, the culture and atmosphere are amazing.

    Free lunches, great people, management is great. CEO cares about the employees and has an open door policy.

    Cons

    Recently acquired by Darden, so there's a lot of lay offs.

    Advice to Management
