    ProsMy manager only lets me work weekends (sat and sun) 9:30-3:00. My tips can range from 30-70 from one shift. Usually reflects on if it's busy or not. Free food and drinks. Get to meet a lot of people, such as the CEO.

    ConsManager doesn't let me get much time off so I can go home since I am away for college. I would love more hours.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
