    Pros

    You need a job that is flexible around your schedule then this could be the job for you. That is all

    Cons

    They keep hours under qualifying for benefits and ask of you to keep giving and giving but never give anything in return. Only get tips and you don't get breaks for lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees better. You used to.

    I worked at Rafferty's full-time

    Pros

    Great food; best GM I've ever worked for; teamwork based system; flexible scheduling; great regular clientele; surprisingly good heath insurance for full time employees.

    Cons

    Lack of advancement opportunities; undependable coworkers; inability to fix broken equipment due to cheapness;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's ok to fire someone if they're doing an inadequate job. It's also ok to (gasp!) fix things when they break, or to buy new equipment.

    Pros

    free food the cooks are great

    Cons

    management is just so dumb. Micro managing is out of control its like they have no sense. jason watson is the worst GM I have ever seen. Lean is out of control I dont know how she could ever get the job but thats how the company is that why they will be out of business soon. If you can do not work or eat there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to learn something. yelling at people does not work. You your brain its not a hard job! I just thank God I will be leaving soon. You guys are out of control. I have worked for many restaurants yall are the worst mangers I have ever see. God bless you
