    Kitchen Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsPay for performance, GREAT bonus structure. Chances to grow.

    ConsHours, can get crazy at times, but it is a restaurant mangement job so it is expected a bit.

    Advice to Senior Managementnotice talent, when people progress and get promoted several times, and then surround them with new management, realize that when stuff is crashing around them, and they help, their department tends to suffer a bit as well.

    Nice job

    Cashier/Waitress (Former Employee) Great Falls, MT

    ProsI worked with amazing people and had a great experience. They always took great pride in being a clean and well working machine.

    ConsIn a waitressing position it was a great environment but being slightly dependent on tips was slightly more difficult. Since people see it as all included they tend not to leave tips.

    Works well with schedule, should not be a career

    Server (Current Employee) Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsWorks well with personal life schedule, especially if you're a student. As a server, there are pros in the customers you meet and the amount of money you make.

    ConsIt is hard to find someone to cover your shift and when calling in it's always looked down upon. Also, the managers seem to want the employee to deal with the customer's complaint even if the customer asked for the manager.

    Something I'm doing while going to school full time. Nice place, but not something you would want to do forever.

    Cashier (Current Employee) Lumberton, NC

    ConsPeople do not seem to take this job too seriously. Sometimes people are hired who clearly bring nothing to the table.
