Fun Place, Great Beer and Food!

Server (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at Karl Strauss full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFamily like atmosphere with co-workers, hours are good at most locations, tastings of beer and food, selling contests, good culture

Constakes new employees a long time to work up to good shifts, managers play favorites, corporate rules and bureaucratics apply

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers are moved to different locations much too often, it's like musical chairs. Huge disruptions within the restaurant occur as a result. Limit these transfers to only when necessary.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Hostile Sr Management

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Carlsbad, CA

I have been working at Karl Strauss

ProsFree Shift beer, beer training, fairly easy job with a flexible schedule. Casual, friendly atmosphere, employee discounts on food and beer.

Cons3 weeks of extensive training, aggressive and somewhat hostile Sr. management, servers with seniority get all of the good shifts. Servers with seniority order newer employees around. Many unpleasant employees at this location. Mediocre tips. Secret shopper reports constantly.

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter organization and communication needed. Employees would be happier and have higher morale if upper management treated employees with respect. Give employees constructive criticism, and in a private setting.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
