    Pros

    Management sometime lenient about schedule. If you prove them that you are a hard worker, they will show their appreciation

    Cons

    Some workers are: not well trained, yet are already hired, hence, causes slowing down the other workers kind of lazy - doing things just enough to get by, sometimes not even enough to be called done. individualistic (not willing to help, even though they know you need help) not able to speak English well.

    Advice to Management

    Train the workers better before hiring them.

    Pros

    Pretty Atmosphere and free meal during shift, and that was the only perk of working there..

    Cons

    Low pay for such an upscale restaurant, Management has cold / poor communication skills, They are not keen on hiring those outside of the Chinese race. If your not Chinese and can communicate in their language they will quickly have you replaced with someone that "fits" the part.. Basically they will use you as a fill in and then not give you an explanation why they fired you other than sorry it didn't work out, here is your paycheck..

    Advice to Management

    Don't low ball your employees unless you want them to perform at the rate of their pay. Also be honest and communicate a lot better.


  3. A great way to experience a new culture of work

    Pros

    Flexibility; interesting; sushi; extremely lax management; easy money

    Cons

    Constantly changing codes of conduct; punishment for misconduct (e.g. being friends with coworkers); impossible to get time off

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. This is a professional establishment not a clubhouse. Decided on a set of standards and stick with them. Stop literally doling out punishments for ridiculous things.
