    Pros

    It is a great atmosphere! There is an in house cafeteria and a small gym.

    Cons

    Training is sub-par, have to be a pro at the "fake it til you make it" lifestyle. Pay is not competitive and there is minimal chance at an increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want more efficient staff, train them. If you want less turn over and more loyalty, pay them!

    Pros

    50% employee discount at any Landry's location nationwide

    Cons

    Management is EXTREMELY unprofessional, hourly employees (90% of employees) don't get holiday pay or time 1/2 for working on holidays, crewmembers are required to work on EVERY holiday, when they need you they will overwork you, when they don't need you they will give you NO hours and wont care how you pay your bills, all they care about is saving/making a dollar, many shifts are worked w/o a break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to appreciate your employees. Without the employees you would not be able to run the business properly.
