    Pros

    Large high volume company with great potential and a great concept. Hospitality and event driven that is great for a person that enjoys to multitask and work fast and efficient.

    Cons

    Crooked management with a lot of favoritism. Unhealthy work environments with a lot of people turning their heads the other way.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to be more involved to see what is happening in their individual establishments.

    Pros

    Excellent support from the Corporate Executive Chef and Corporate Chef in every aspect. Direct access 24/7 made it easy to get answers, when needed.

    Cons

    Awful site management and support. Local GM and Managers were too busy cruising the internet to bother managing the business properly.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and retain managers who actually want to be there and make a difference. Train Management to the company standards and culture and hold them accountable.

    Pros

    This review is for Lucky Strike, Jillian's, and Tequila Rain.... The staff gets along really well. It was always fun to go to work and the managers are generally understanding of scheduling conflicts and other issues. They were always happy to give you more or less shifts depending on what you needed. They also generally hire from within. All of the current managers were former door staff, servers, bartender, bar backs, pin techs, etc.

    Cons

    For some reason unbeknownst to all staff and management, Lucky Strike REFUSES to put money into renovations of the building. Tequila Rain and Jillian's are unbelievably dirty and outdated. The dishwashers don't even use hot water. Tequila Rain is a 10 year old night club in need of SERIOUS renovations. The bars to both the left and right of it are constantly busy and always have lines while Tequila Rain will have 20 people in the 750-capacity space. Staff members can only make money during Red Sox games and even then it is minimal. Oh, and the food and the beer are embarrassing to serve. Draft beer is stale and flat after sitting in the lines for a week untouched and the nachos are made with glorified cheek-wiz. It's is truly an embarrassment. The management and staff get frustrated in the lack of funding for renovations. If only corporate would pay the Boston location a visit...

    Advice to Management

    Advice to CORPORATE management: Come take a look for yourself.
