    Pros

    Everyone works as a team and the gm helps to keep the restaurant going as well. The pay is minimum wage (8.40 an hour). Very flexible hours but the days you work have to be consistent. As a college student there is enough time to be able study and work in a week.

    Cons

    Not really a con but make sure you know the menu like the back hand because it will be tough to work quickly if don't know what's on the menu

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees & treat them properly

    Pros

    You meet some great friends. Most people, even the managers, are in their twenties, so the environment is very fun. If you work hard, you get rewards. It's that simple.

    Cons

    I can't think of any downsides, to be honest. Things are pretty much a work environment anyone would want, with better music than half of the mall jobs young people are working.
