    Excellent working environment. Management is very supportive, competent, friendly, and understanding. Co-workers make the job fun. They work with your schedule, and allow you to trade/pick up shifts as needed.Great relationship between the hosts and the servers. Although there are strict guidelines that must be followed, this job really allows you to express your personality. Overall great place to work.
