    Awesome place!

    General Manager (Current Employee)
    Shreveport, LA

    ProsThe work environment is amazing, it is like we are a big family. We have fun every day. I have alot of responsibilities and tasks to complete daily but I have an amazing team that helps accomplish all tasks. I have 17 years of management experience but here I have actuallly been able to see the true ins and outs of running a business. I have a much better understanding of food costs, labor costs and how to balance both. I have and am continuing to develop and fine tune my management skills. My bosses the owners are very involved with the store unlike alot of business owners. We do alot of catering which is alot of fun.

    ConsThe hourly pay and salary pay are way below average. That is the only bad thing about this company.

    Best job I've had out of the 5 total I've had.

    Team Member (Current Employee)
    Carbondale, IL

    ProsI've had great coworkers, I love the food, and I love the customers that come in. My GM and Assistant manager are very understanding if I can't work.

    ConsSometimes if you work at night, and you only get a 5 to Rush shift, you'll only get about 3 or 4 hours and depending on where you live, the difference of cost of gas used to how much you make isn't very much.

    Stellar company...

    General Manager (Former Employee)
    Viera, FL

    ProsGreat upper management, welcome to moes! as a franchise group is ROCK SOLID Steve and Brad are some of the best guys I've ever worked for. They allow relative autonomy for most of the GM's. Super supportive, great HR department, just all around a great team.

    ConsThey allow relative autonomy, and for someone about to take the Area Supervisor position I wasn't interested in dealing with lazy, irresponsible satellite store GM's who were used to being 'king of their world'

    Honestly as a GM there were zero Cons.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep a close eye on the ones furthest away from the nest.

    Not the best

    Shift Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Winter Park, FL

    ProsYou get free queso all the time.

    ConsLots of Young kids, creating lots of unnecessary drama and problems. Abuse staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to treat the good employees good, not like the bad employees.

    First Job

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsI was fortunate to work with some great people, and my schedule was very flexible. It was insanely busy all of the time so it was draining yet entertaining.

    ConsWith how busy it is it would make sense to take .5 or 1 percent of total profits and throw it into tips so that the busier you are the more you are rewarded. We relied on a tip jar and often worked very hard for a lot of very stingy people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Worked at Moe's through college.

    Crew Member (Former Employee)
    Blacksburg, VA

    ProsVery flexible scheduling. Many people working here are either very young and don't care, or have been in restaurants all of their lives.

    ConsLow pay, late hours on the weekends. Very very high turnover. Vacation is impossible to come by. No promotions. No way to work your way up. Would not recommend.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppropriate money better to help employees be more efficient while making the product. It could be much faster.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
