    I worked at Rainforest Cafe full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The 50% discount off of all food and drink except alcohol is pretty good, and the discount works for all Landry's owned companies.

    Cons

    The management and the hours were always a problem, where if you requested a day off and they say you can have it but still schedule you for that day.

    Pros

    Excellent money Fun people to work with Cool environment to be in everyday

    Cons

    Shifts usually last 12 hours a day "Black out" days prevent you from doing ANYTHING during the summer/ holiday months In cases where they're short staff, its impossible to have any days off. Usually no breaks, even during the 12 hour shifts.

    Pros

    You can make good money and the job is easily manipulated as far as money, your schedule, and the amount of work you do goes. But you can find that at any restuarant...

    Cons

    You are a working body, management is not only generally understaffed, and that reaches all the way to the corporate end, but managment can get away with a lot of sneaky, selfish things because of it. A former GM for my location was caught stealing tens of thousands of dollars from servers tip-out... Think about it.

    Advice to Management

    Staff up! ANd preferably with good people.

    Pros

    Hard work is noticed.store management is very involved. Consistent busy shifts come to work ready.

    Cons

    Corporate "support means fly in. Act like kings talking to peasants. . Fly out.store managers shrug it off and we move on.

    Advice to Management

    believe in the locals. They know what's happening in the area. This isn't Houston. Stop calling every two hours.
