    Pros

    Fun atmosphere. Fun people to work with. Great customers.

    Cons

    No life outside of work. Upper management has forgotten what its like to be lower management. Thankless job.

    I worked at Fox & Hound Restaurant part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    After working there for about 6 months, I started getting better hours and busier sections and more often than not made at least $100 a night. Other staff are friendly and helpful for the most part. Generally the managers were willing to work with my schedule and were very flexible.

    Cons

    Drama, managers could be impatient sometimes, some times $0 tips because of the type of people that come to the restaurant, and many times we were over staffed because it is difficult to gauge when the restaurant will be busy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people go when we are not making money instead of keeping us there for minimum wage.

    Majority of the staff and my customers were great but from the managers on up all that mattered was favoritism.

    Pros

    The best thing about this pub would have been the customers. Majority of the crowd that would come in were regulars and treated the staff wonderfully.

    Cons

    The managers will never reward those who work hard and will only focus on their favorites. There are several girls who have been there for a long time and they will bully out anyone they dislike. They would also encourage public humiliation of others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The managers need to do their job and manage the restaurant. They will change things that the customers love and drive them away for no reason. They create an atmosphere that intimidates any employee not considered a favorite. On valentines the managers decided to make a wall for people to bash others which was the most disgusting thing I've ever seen in my life. Overall they need to focus on being professional instead of acting like a bunch of high school children.

    Pros

    Tips were decent. It's definitely not a very hard job. Most of the time is spent talking to people. Night shifts and sports weekends are really the only time it is worth working.

    Cons

    Very poor management, there is one manager that has worked there for quite some time but I am not sure why, as he seems to hate his job. His customer service skills have also been neglected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to general manager:
    Bring in new management

    Fun serving staff (not management), good food.

    I worked at Fox & Hound Restaurant

    Pros

    The company doesn't really care about you, but if you take initiative you can promote yourself with the clientele and get loyal customers.

    Cons

    Management is all over the place and lets the power of the position go to their head

    Pros

    Great people to work with and good money during the party season. I can't think of anything else that is positive except that I no longer have to work at a fox and hound

    Cons

    Cheapskate management. Decent food. Overpriced drinks. The steps of service require you to solicit your tables for about 5 different things and if makes customers mad. Stop with the groupons!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No more groupons and turn the music down. You don't take care of your servers. They rely on tips and you have it set up so that your servers get stuffed often. I'm glad I don't work for you anymore.
