    Not the greatest place to work

    Busser/Cashier (Former Employee) Duluth, MN

    Prostemporary job, management was nice enough They were understanding about being a student and working with your schedule. Some co-workers were in the same boat as me and worked well together.

    ConsMost of the staff were dead beats, the harassment and crude behavior was disgusting. As a young girl I wouldn't have recommended working there. Staff were also quite rude and customers were ungrateful.

    Advice to Senior Managementcrack down on employee harassment, especially the sexual comments

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
