    I worked at Iron Hill Brewery full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They promote from within and have a fantastic training program. They really value their employees and the owners are really down to earth, great people. You get to learn so much cool stuff about craft beer, you will end up being a beer snob! The clientele is above-average, so as a server you do not feel disrespected. They do a great job at hiring people who are nice, outgoing, friendly and educated. It's a fun, fast environment and you will never be bored.

    Cons

    Managers tend to play favorites with assigning the money-making sections and shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing & don't lose sight of your employees and where you came from as you grow as a company.

    I have been working at Iron Hill Brewery part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Today, I recieved an email that it was my three month anniversary working for iron hill but I already feel like it's been a lifetime. My employers and coworkers are amazing people and I always enjoy going to work. The hours formt position are short but I make twice as much money as I expected. Compared to my previous jobs I am working half the hours for double the money. I would like to stay with this company until I finish college and I know that when that day comes i will be sad to leave.

    Cons

    So far there are no cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only advice is to do something about the lack of clean silverware at the start of shifts.

    I have been working at Iron Hill Brewery

    Pros

    They are lenient when it comes to giving an employee time off for outside obligations. If you have a question(s), most co-workers and managers are willing to assist, regardless of how many times you have asked the same question.

    Cons

    I agree wholeheartedly with previous cons other employees have made: management plays favorites; lots of sidework; although management will grant time off or avoid scheduling certain days if you have other commitments like another job or school, they will constantly pressure you to pick up more hours by calling/messaging/texting, make snide remarks pertaining to why you cannot pick up extra shifts all the time and one AGM threatened to give less hours to those who have other engagements besides Iron Hill; meetings do not resolve issues; managers and key leads are appointed after less than a year as a host or server; and, there is a tremendous pattern of nepotism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address the cons in this review to strengthen your establishment; it will certainly improve employee satisfaction and morale as well as revenue.

    Pros

    Location is great, Kitchen always produces an excellent product. Clientele rarely tips unfairly. Co-workers are truly amazing people!

    Cons

    New AGM at Voorhees is working them illegally, adding set-up shifts in the morning. AGM is only worried $$$$$ not the staff. He denies all OT. Complaints to management go unresolved because if the AGM is confronted .... he is never wrong. Bring the old AGM back!! Most Key Managers need better training!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a formal GM to staff meeting to resolve all the issues.

    Excellence is recognized by management and owners, there are chances for advancement and it is easy to make money if you know the product and take time to know the customer

    Hours are either too much or too few. Menu is very big and hard to learn.
