    I have been working at Moxies Classic Grill part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone on line I work with is really nice, easy to get along with. We joke around and make working fun. Lots of respect for each other and our own strengths.

    Cons

    Lot's of pressure from Managers and Supervisors, high-intensity environment. Keeps you on your toes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speak clearly and ask for exactly what you want. Be polite as it will go a LONG WAY and you will get what you want faster / better / more efficiently.

    I worked at Moxies Classic Grill full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Training, experience, great place to meet great co-workers

    Cons

    Unfair staffing levels based on age and sex. Will only allow females to work as a server in the lounge or on the patio at some locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open-minded and learn to appreciate staff who have skills rather than give the best sections to the best looking server. I've seen management give the busiest sections to the newest staff only because they were sexy and female, but unfortunately couldn't handle serving more than a few tables. Experienced staff would be stuck with empty sections running all the food out for the 'sexy' server, while the 'sexy' server would make all the tips and the experienced servers would make almost no tips.

    I worked at Moxies Classic Grill part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good tips if you can get the good shifts, yummy food for a reasonable price.

    Cons

    Horrendous managemen. Men are always the managers and there is a TON of sexual harassment. Basically if you don't sleep with your manager, you won't be given good shifts and will slowly be forced to quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote some women and some better ethical values.
