    Pros

    Flexible with working around your schedule (except some difficult managers at times) Very easy to learn and move up from positions in the restaurant industry with absolutely no experience Fun environment only because of some employees

    Cons

    Hires young adults with NO experience in the restaurant industry VERY high stressful environment Ridiculous amount of tip out compared to most restaurants Bartenders DO NOT receive any tip outs from servers (majority half of your tips go to sushi chef) Hostess make minimum wage and only to go tips Servers are required to set up multiple settings after taking orders which lacks time for them to do anything else

    Advice to Management

    Hire more experienced employee

    Pros

    Growth in the company is there and if you are willing to put in the time they have opportunities for some.

    Cons

    For a company that is expanding they have not expanded to letting other people out side of their comfort zone in. The company is dominated by Korean workers a lot of which know each other. Experience and hard work is appreciated, but their comfort takes president when promotions take place. Being of that ethnic background (just a younger generation) its hard to see the company let in other people, not because they are discriminating but because they are uncomfortable of the unknown. Culturally they put their employees down whether it be their management or their bottom level staff making the moral of the workers very low and keeps them from retaining employees.

    Advice to Management

    Let the branches work and only step in when there are REAL issues. Expand the thought that there are a lot of good people working for this company if they look outside of just what they are familiar with.

    Pros

    If you are in college or have other obligations they are very willing to work with your schedule. Free and discounted food. Good way to network with others.

    Cons

    High stress environment which leads to some tension between customers and employees. Tips are not so good for hosts, but pretty good for servers.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to be an EEO employer! Diversity is key!

    I have been working at Kabuki Japanese Restaurants

    Pros

    Great working environment. Nice friendly workers and managers. Small employee discount but certain foods are free. Flexible schedules and understanding managers.

    Cons

    Low pay. Expensive food with small employee discount. Tip pool, can't keep entire tip unless you're a hostess. Hostess doesn't get payed a lot even though they do more than a typical host at any other restaurant who usually gets payed 10.50 or more.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more. The employees love working here but the only reason they are leaving is because they find jobs that pay better. 5+ employees left for better paying jobs in the two months I've been working and they were all considered your best employees.

    Pros

    Free food, fast pace, meet new people, and great tips!

    Cons

    Sometimes you get rough customers, and just like all people, your co-workers can be tough on you due to the high-stress level.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure there's great diversity on the team!

    Pros

    Get to meet new people.

    Cons

    Lackluster training, at least when I was hired. Compensation is not up to par as it should be. Expect you to do more than what you're getting paid to do.
