    Pros

    Working as a team, being hands on, helping customers even if it is with food. Learning something new each day.

    Cons

    Smelling like BBQ, some times not having enough people on the floor, but we always make it.

    Advice to Management

    Being more hands on, with your team.


  2. Long hours, no breaks.

    Pros

    Great compensation, employee meals are 100% covered, fun work environment

    Cons

    Nonchalant management, long hours with no breaks, extremely conservative workplace basis, horrible work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more breaks, especially when working a strenuous volume shift. Ensure par sheets for BOH are followed to the tee, and FOH does their job themselves.

    Pros

    Free meal, some discount on other food. Good hours. Ok pay.

    Cons

    Some managers are rude and don't care for employees. Long hours on feet. No breaks

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. Respect employees. Give breaks being on your feet for eight hours is exhausting. Don't just give raises to new people, give raises to people who have been there longer.

    Gives you a great place to start a management career.

    I got paid 9$ an hour for being a greeter.

    Cons

    The management is terrible. I don't know about other locations but the Goodyear, AZ location is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop scheduling your employees out of no where for no reason and then not notify them.

    Pros

    The company offers great benefits and ability to move up the ladder. Fun working atmosphere and provides great training.

    Cons

    Rarely get two days off in a row. Annual raise is capped and not that high. The company expects a lot from hourly employees whom only get paid 7-9 dollars an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Allow multiple days off in a row. Give more pats on the back for jobs well done.
