Nyc, stay away.

Anonymous (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Fogo de Chão Churrascaria (Holding) LLP

ProsOverall, a great company to work for. Free delicious food every shift, good money, great team environment. A lot of opportunity for growth if you're willing to work for it.

ConsNyc I have found to be an exception to the rule for Fogo. Managers never seem to be around, and disrespectful and manipulative when they are around. I can't in good faith recommend this particular store as a good place to work. I've been with the company for several years, and am currently seeking other employment because of my treatment here. I don't want this to steer anyone away from working at other stores. This isnt meant to be an indictment against the company as a whole, only of the management of the New York City location.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop acting like you're the mafia. Start leading.
Stop talking to your employees like they're children or animals. We are all adults, most of us extremely hard working, and you're losing all your best ones because your treatment makes them miserable. Maybe take a clue from that fact alone that something needs to change.

Terrible

Server (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at Fogo de Chão Churrascaria (Holding) LLP full-time for less than a year

ProsOnly the cold and burned meats they give you

ConsThey do not respect the labor laws, you work more than eight. seven, six hours without a break, managers have a lot of discrimination. I don"t recommend this job to anyone. In my life was the worst job I ever had. You have no life working there.

Advice to Senior ManagementFollow the labor laws before someone shows it to you

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not Worth The Stress

Host (Former Employee)
Philadelphia, PA

I worked at Fogo de Chão Churrascaria (Holding) LLP part-time for less than a year

ProsThe best thing about working at Fogo was that you go free meals with every shift.

ConsThe mangers do not care about your hours, they expect you to put Fogo in front of everything. I was hired as a host but they put me on cashier after I had already told them I was not comfortable with that. If you make honest mistakes, they treat you as if youre purposely trying to bring down the whole establishment. I didn't count the money in my drawer right one time and they made me come downstairs to the main office to count it for me -- as if I was stealing it. It seems as if the managers purposely try to intimidate you. The restaurant is very fast pace however I have worked in similar fast pace environments and havent felt the same uncomfort and stress that I felt when I worked at Fogo. If you don't like stuffy environments this is not the place for you... if you like feeling like youre valued as an employee then this is not the place for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees better, do not be so "stuffy"

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
