    The most awesome review ever.

    Server (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe best reason is management their understanding of employees' day off or when employees call in sick.

    ConsThe downsides of working at Kabuki were the impolite customers and hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe only advise I could think of is management keep doing what they're doing because they have been doing a great job at Kabuki.

    It's a part-time job that paid for college, but get out once you can!

    Server (Former Employee) Pasadena, CA

    ProsScheduling is very flexible. Some of the staff only work one day a week, while others would work the maximum six days. Free food is a definite plus, what with the rising food prices and all.

    ConsVery low chances of ever moving up in the company, except if one is Korean, or probably Japanese. Now, the company isn't completely discriminatory, there are quite a few non-Koreans working management level and above, you just don't hear it as often. The company expects a lot from their servers, which is normal. However, considering that, servers are still responsible for paying for a good portion of the rest of the staff's salary; mainly for Sushi chefs. To add to that, no server will ever gain so much as an inch of respect from anyone in the higher levels. Lastly, it is impossible for servers to obtain any kind of raise in hourly pay. The condition for a raise is 1) work in the company for two years, and 2) work full-time (40 hours in the week). The second condition will never be met, since the managers were instructed to make sure they don't schedule too much. And in the rare event one does get a raise, management has to make sure you don't work too many hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate the servers more, at least show it. There isn't much of a motivation to do anything or care about the company when employees directly dealing with customers are not taken care of. Employees would find that no matter how well you do your job, there will never be a real reward. There will however, be "consequences" for not doing well. Once again, re-instating the idea that, if there is no motivation, why do excel in the company?
