    Really not a good reason to work here to be honest poor team work in Davenport Florida unorganized

    Well multitasking as in washing dishes and busing tables cleaning rest rooms at the same time unirrelevant for one person

    Advice to Management

    Understand employees more ask them are they alright and don't take advantage of them well that's what they did to me in Davenport and more sanitizing as cleaning the work place better..oh good food

    Pros

    The employees, quick advancement opportunities, benefits

    Cons

    Wage freezes, investors/ corporate is ran by suits behind a desk, bankrupt. Fired me after 11 years, on the phone, for an HR issue, which I made the claim on and took them 3 weeks to investigate. My only witness happened to be on vacation out of country that week.

    Advice to Management

    If you make too much money for the dwindling guest counts, starting looking for employment elsewhere or they will fire you for any little thing to bring in someone else who won't drive up the labor percent.

    Pros

    The food discounts. Flexible hours for a college kid. Pay was descent because of returning customers. I like the job. Not a career...but a good job to get a foundation in the service industry.

    Cons

    The owner would come in and mess with us trying to run things, but just became confused and it was more funny than anything. Some of the employees were a little questionable when it came to service. Sometimes not friendly and a gossip circle.

    Advice to Management

    More fun events or incentives to keep us motivated. I like the $$. Give better areas to better servers, not just based on tenure..

    Pros

    Strong management. Low turnover. They really try to create a strong team at each store unit level. If you work hard, you can move up relatively fast.

    Cons

    They really need to remodel a number of the locations and update the brand. It's dated and past its prime. While it is a good company to move up in while you are young, it isn't a company you want to work for in the long term.

    Advice to Management

    Update the image and concept of the brand.

    Pros

    Great money, Good hours, opportunities for SMALL advancements (host to server or server to trainer). Turnover was low because most of the management was professional and courteous.

    Cons

    After training a new server she became my manager in 3 weeks. Eventually she was fired and arrested for stealing from the company.

    Advice to Management

    Management is necessary for any company to function, but it needs to be qualified management

    Pros

    If you love people this is one of the best places to work. They always have something entertaining going on there. Great fun people to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes the rush hour can be overwhelming and if you're busy at work and you have an appointment that same day there is a high chance you will miss that appointment.
