    Fantastic

    Bartender/Server (Former Employee)
    Sacramento, CA

    ProsVery respectful managers. The restaurant is very organized. They are kind mangers. They believe in cleanliness and customer service. Everyone is always happy.

    ConsIt is a restaurant so working hours are bad. It is a corporation so the upper management dose not care about you only numbers.

    I loved my coworkers.

    Server (Former Employee)

    ProsMeeting new people and building customer relationships with the "usuals." Tips are pretty good, but some people can be really cheap when it comes to tipping. Being able to cover a shift, is easy, and so is trying to get a shift covered.

    ConsHappy Hour is fun when your a customer, when you're working during happy hour, you sometimes feel overworked for their tips. The managers do have favorites, and sometimes have to kiss their butt to like you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet to know your new workers, you'll build a better professional-relationship with the ones that are helping you keep your job.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fun place to work at but very fast paced. Great while in college.

    Server (Current Employee)
    Princeton Meadows, NJ

    ProsIt has flexible hours, it provides customer service experience as well as learn to multitask. I a great job to supplement while in college.

    ConsThe managers can be often not prepared to manage or have the skills to run a business. This discrepancy creates a strain on the other managers creating a stressful environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo improve of training and to be more helpful with shift activities.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Can't rave, but can't complain

    Server (Former Employee)
    Hicksville, NY

    ProsOTB was great with training, scheduling, and general business practices. I very rarely had anything to complain about with respect to the management or product. My favorite part was the group of individuals I worked with over the years.

    ConsCons include regular industry standard cons - poor/long hours, difficult guests, low tips based on the prices, etc.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It has been eye opening, in that, I now know how ignorant people are to the world of tipping your servers.
