    I worked at Fox Restaurant Concepts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good starting pay. Employees are good at what they do.

    Cons

    No room for growth or development. Exceptional employees have been with the company for over five years and are still at the bottom of the pyramid.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to exploit their technology. Upper management need to supervise their company's employees to stop harassment and abuse.

    Pros

    Great people, exciting brands, exceptional food, inspiring leaders, high standards, loyal teams, great growth potential, high value placed on intelligence

    Cons

    Fox Restaurant Concepts require a ton out of their people. There is a big time commitment but worth it if you are serious about your career.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive excellence and hold people to the highest possible standard. Great job!

    Pros

    Fairly professional environment as far as the hospitality biz goes, high standards for employees

    Cons

    If you enjoy the corporate thing, this could be a good place for you. For me, working as a server has it's fun side... being part of an industry that enjoys good food and drink. Fox seems to get this to a point, however, employees are not even allowed to sit at the bar at any of their restaurants (besides Culinary Dropout bc that place is "way hip and edgy"). The GM at my restaurant is unstable and quite cruel to many employees - which makes for a hostile working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up - if you are going to freak out about the small stuff, maybe you aren't in the right biz.

    Pros

    There are many, many PRO's to working at FRC. Great Hospitality Every Time. Delicious food, great service, cool restaurants, outstanding quality, high standards, fun workplace, family feel, positive reinforcement, growth opportunities, ongoing training, business education, fast pace, performance recognition...

    Cons

    I really don't have any CON's. In regards to other reviews I have read, it seems most of the CON's are by people that have a hard time being held accountable. The company has high standards and expects all team members to maintain them, that is a good thing.

    Advice to Management

    Find your own way to hold people accountable with consistency and positivity. Help others show the great hospitality we are known for.

    Pros

    Great management, treat employees well, promotion opportunities, allow for work/life balance, flexible

    Cons

    Fast turnover of management and employees because so much room for lateral and vertical growth within company so it is hard to adjust to new management sometimes and lack of cohesiveness between managers

    I have been working at Fox Restaurant Concepts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best reason to work here simply put is the money. As a server you can make great money during the evening shifts. The other servers you work with often become family which is beautiful.

    Cons

    Saying the standards are high is an understatement. A quote was posted recently that read "mistakes are unacceptable." Managers make mistakes but shift blame to their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to replace their current managers. Too many of them are ineffective leaders who were given positions of leadership due to their time with the company. This place has the potential to be great again if they can send in new managers who care about the well being of their employees. Happy employees make for happy customers.

    Pros

    Great management, lots of communication from the team and nice place to work.

    Cons

    The standards are really high company wide and is sometimes tough to meet the standards when extremely busy during service..

    Advice to Management

    Great communication skills, always improving the quality of our work environment and always constructive..

    I worked at Fox Restaurant Concepts part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for Fox because I got to use my discount at all restaurants. It was a great job to hold through college.

    Cons

    Managers are moved around often and without warning. Though it may be helpful in ensuring all restaurants run the same, it can be difficult to handle as an employee.
