    they need to get people that knows what they r doing and to make their employees feel good about working for that company

  2. Always worked with great people. The company's morals are very questionable thought.

    Pros

    A job as long as you can stand it. Some decent coworkers.

    Cons

    About 50% of front of house employees that work for tips put effort into their jobs, and do the best with what they have. The other 50% work there because they cannot get a job anywhere else. Anyone not working for tips on the property couldn't care less about guests or quality of their work.

    Advice to Management

    Actually show up and work.Not just bi-weekly 15 minute meetings where you pat each other on the back and then split. Provide training to employees that need it. Give front line employees the tools and support they need to do their jobs. I don't know if your capable of doing your job, but I do know you're not even trying. Failures daily in every department. Do you think Tillman is just some rich tourist that needs to be fleeced, or is he in on it and the whole place just a "bust out joint" scam ? Decent hard working people are trying to make a living. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

    Pros

    The co workers for the most part are good people.

    Cons

    No raises, no medical benefits , no overtime, horrible food, high turnover right.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees raises give them a reason to stay in that place. Even supervisors make crappy pay.

    Pros

    The reason that I like the job is that there are people that I enjoy seeing on a daily basis, Co workers and some of the regulars that I see there

    Cons

    Getting along with those that think that they are better than you because they are friends with the Shift boss and then getting away with snide remarks. Shift bosses on swing dating dealers. Big violation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop dating co workers and giving them all the power. Give everyone an equal opportunity and stop showing favoritism towards those that you are having an intimate relationship with.
