    Overall it's OK

    Waiter (Current Employee)
    Groton, CT

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

    ConsSome 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 Senior ManagementTrain the workers better before hiring them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Short and Bitter

    Hostess (Former Employee)
    Albany, NY

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

    ConsLow 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 Senior ManagementDon'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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Ridiculous

    Server (Former Employee)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet 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.
