Pros

Structured in a good way, advancement opportunities, benefits available if you want them. You learn a lot about beer! Lots of staff and management on every shift. Staff is recognized and rewarded for good work.

Cons

Hotschedules can be really impersonal. Mistakes are held against you. Sometimes being really corporate restricts flexibility and some things really strict.

Advice to Management

Try to stay flexible. Just because it's corporate does mean everything is black and white.

    Pros

    Reputable company with excellent food and awesome selection of beer!

    Cons

    Depending on the store your at you work hard! They get their money's worth out of you your bussing tables, running food, running drinks from the bar, seating guest, etc... it's just over whelming and no one that works for the company be it manager, server, or bartender is ever really comfortable always on edge for fear of being fired or wrote up. It's a huge catch 22 hold the staff accountable but in turn they can hold you accountable if you don't do what they ask of you. For what they pay just does not balance for the stress you deal with drunks, fights, late nights were talking 3:30am if your closing on weekends plus double HH Mon through Weds. No thanks! P.S all the management is cut throat and will throw you under the bus in 2 seconds. Funny thing is all the corporate people who use to work at the main office in Irvine were let go cause Darden bought YH and we're given the opportunity to go back in the restaurants and 90% said no cause they know what they would be in for. Lol!

    Advice to Management

    Good luck.
