    Pros

    make good money as a server, and it gets you ready for other fast paced jobs.

    Cons

    the fellow employees aren't as into the job as everyone, too many lazy people just want to get paid to work and have no pride in what they do, laziness is a big issue in all restaurants im sure.

    Advice to Management

    do your job and everything will fall into place, don't show favoritism, because in my restaurant there is too much favoritism and if we go to management they take it out on who's "snitching".

    The money, flexiable hours and fast pace job

    Cons

    servers had to do everything even side jobs that had nothing to do with us.

    Learn how to do your job right and stop making servers do everything.

    Pros

    This job is good if you want cash in your hand. The hours are short, the job is simple. Fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Management is not there to support you, the customers are very rude 95% of the time. Be prepared to feel like dirt most of the time no matter what you do.

    Advice to Management

    Realize the stress your employees are under. Drug test.
