    Great Working Environment!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    the Del Mar location has some great comraderie in its coworkers, very team-work oriented atmosphere, good tips as well.

    Cons

    Management changes frequently which can add a little chaos, but it is pretty easy to get adjusted to working under different types of personalities

  7.  

    Friendly coworkers, but not fabulous pay.

    • Work/Life Balance
    Former Employee - Server
    Former Employee - Server

    Pros

    A fun and upbeat place to work. All food is prepared for you... meaning no salad or dessert preparation. Love that! Very accomodating to time off needed, but you must find someone to cover your shift... many people are hired on as stand by to cover this.

    Cons

    Would frequently work a lunch shift and walk with 20 bucks, if lucky. The price of meals is pretty low, so it is often tough to get a high check. Popular with families.

    Pros

    Pretty good pay for being a bus boy. Obviously its a restaurant, you shouldn't be looking for exceptional pay or benefits or anything like that.

    Cons

    The downsides of this are basically like nay other restaurant, its hot and hard work and management is just meh, sometimes they try to push everyone, but how are you supposed to motivate a bunch of college kids that just want to be done with work and go drink?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management seems to be alright, obviously try as much as possible to cater to the customers but not at the expense of your employees, they are important too.
