    Not to stellar.

    Manager (Current Employee) Plymouth, MN

    ProsVery fast paced so you are never bored. Large customer base. Small list of employees. Everyone knows everyone.

    ConsSuper busy all the time. No breaks, no matter how long your shift is. very hot for a standard kitchen environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet some AC. Hire more employees so you can cover for breaks.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    great company, not so great boss (Pittsburgh, PA locations)

    Server (Former Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    Prosthe food is great and i personally like to work at the restaurant where I can truly sell the food I like. The organizational system is awesome, everything is thought through and there is little room for mistake. Training was very thorough and informative. Their cleaning procedures are just perfect, you could probably eat off the floors as every single surface is cleaned daily, the walls are cleaned weekly. Another good part is not having to handle guest checks, cashier takes care of payments which makes server's work more efficient and fast because the restaurant is VERY fast paced and often really busy. overall the company was great to work for: nice coworkers, great food, exceptional management and company standards

    Consthe biggest con of the particular restaurant I worked for is the owner himself. He might be a good manager, but a lousy person. He acted like the king and was almost never open to dialogue, treating every employee like a little misbehaving kid. Although he was great with guests and really knew what he was doing around dining room and kitchen alike, his lack of good communication with his staff has led to a lot of problems. several servers walked out (which of course does not make them right, but still) or quit. He would yell and tell you to shut up if you wanted to voice your opinion, not willing to listen to anything. it is his way or highway. and in my opinion that is not a good way of managing a large professional team

    Advice to Senior Managementplease start listening to people and their concerns and accept that you are not always right

    Not bad money but not a place to make a living.

    Cook (Current Employee) Birmingham, MI

    ProsGood food, co-workers, environment. Fast paced.

    Consno advancement in company, raises seem to be based on favoritism.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDont put all your eggs in one basket, there are a lot of good employees, dont show favoritism to only one or two

    Server (Current Employee) Redondo Beach, CA

    ProsGood money in little hours.
    Flexible schedule.

    ConsUnfair management. (favortism)
    Some employees are very rude to one another.
    No raises or benefits for servers.
    No benefits for managers.
    No paid vacation for servers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to notice things that go on around you and pay more attention. Treat everyone equally.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Awesome Place to Work

    Manager (Current Employee) Woodmere, OH

    ProsGreat chemistry between workers, owners (Jane and Mike) are super friendly and seem to work harder than everyone else. Food is incredible, as is the atmosphere, definitely a place to feel proud about.

    ConsAs with all successful restaurants, because it's so busy, things can get really stressful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe sure to explicitly state your expectations for employees, some of us are unsure what, exactly, you want.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
