    Pros

    Great concept, great people, great atmosphere (work and after hours). Not to mention great sauces and having HQ share parking lot with the original location !!! Great events as well !

    Cons

    It can be hectic at times before special events, openings, roll outs, but that makes celebration better afterwards !

    Advice to Management

    Keep this great chain running !!!

    Pros

    Large Company to work for.

    Cons

    Many employees make this as a living, so it's difficult to pick up spare hours when certain people have been working there for 5+ years.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees. I didn't feel this respect when I worked there & I had worked there fore 2 years.

    Pros

    The Culture - Fun Environment. Good food...Great customers.

    Cons

    HR...Payroll...lack of communication. Corporate training extremely lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Back to the basics. Hot food...cold beer. Reduction of current menu (food & beverage) size...back to the roots of why it all began.

    Pros

    Great training, especially when opening a store.
    Franchise is expanding so a lot of management opportunities.
    Hire up from within.
    Great atmosphere with great owners.

    Cons

    Being a server, long hours are always possible. Comes with the territory though.

    Pros

    One of the only pros of working here is that they are offer employees who are in school lots of flexibility when it comes to their work schedule. There's also the potential to get a lot of hours, which translates into a bigger pay check.

    Cons

    Working here was like being in high school all over again. There was so much drama, gossiping, and backstabbing going on between employees. No one was willing to help out struggling employees. It was a very hostile and tense environment to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be friends with the employees and be a good example on proper etiquette at work!


  11. I love this environment great people to work with, very fun.
