    Pros

    Very big on training and developing you into a leader.

    Cons

    This is a place where you need to get it on the 1st or 2nd time. Sometimes the 1st time. If not your out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a step back and understand you workers and stop using them as tools.

    A good temporary place to work with fun people.

    Pros

    The thing that I enjoyed the most about working here is the people; everyone was really social and fun, which made the sometimes tedious work enjoyable. Managers were well-balanced between laying down the law and being relaxed, so we got everything done without them riding us too hard.

    Cons

    It was pretty difficult to switch shifts, and the hosts had to do a lot more work beyond what I thought was the job description. No tips for hosts.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, values, and goals. I love the company and its goals.

    Cons

    The management is rude sometimes. Issues with scheduling and asking off. Awkward in and out times. Management can't seem to hire good workers recently, either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove your managers from this store. One can't speak to guests well, the other can't handle the pressure. There is only one that is good.
