    Great place to work and create lifelong friendships!

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Indianapolis, IN

    ProsGreat smaller company that focuses on the local community. Owner is a great guy who tries to make some sort of personal connection with his staff. The community loves every location and you really get the chance to know your regulars!

    ConsThey keep a lot of managers in place that in a normal restaurant would be let go due to lack of performance and passion. While the company is great at trying to expand sometimes they spread themselves too thin and you can tell in the quality of food and quality of management and staff they choose.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the great employees and let go of the bad ones!! No need to keep horrible people employed when there are great people that would love to work there. Be more strict on policies.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It is ok

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosdiscounts, stated company values, co-workers. There is some opportunity to move up, and the training program, if followed correctly, is awesome.

    ConsUpper management talks out of both sides of mouth, and example is the "Employees are #1" mantra. Big disconnect between upper management and store operations, what the reality is. Compensation is very low for the industry.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Former Manager

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Indianapolis, IN

    ProsFun atmosphere and great product. A lot of room for growth and upward movement.

    ConsGrowing company still working out the kinks. Low Pay for Management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe managers rather than friends with staff. They will respect you more. Manage like you own the business and are driving revenue and profits instead of to be liked.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Food. Great Brew. Not-so-Honest People

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe family atmosphere of the employees banding together to survive the storm. The loyalty amongst the people who want to help but because of poor decision making will not be able to thrive long term.

    ConsA complete disconnection between operations and reality. Great at asking for feedback, but never any follow up, which is worse that not asking at all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest and listen to people, instead of assuming that your can make knee-jerk decisions and keep up the business.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Everyone hates it here...EVERYONE

    Server (Former Employee)
    Indianapolis, IN

    ProsFlexible schedule, it's almost impossible to get fired(unless you're a manager...then it seems easy)

    ConsPoor management(if they forget to call off the patio for bad weather they'll just have the patio servers standing around for HOURS doing nothing), expect to be there HOURS after your scheduled out time. petty coworkers who constantly complain about other coworkers(everyone is lazy), tips, tables, etc., very cliquey among the staff, I've heard people say they felt like they couldn't come to management for sexual harassment issues because the coworker they wanted to complain about was friends with management...everything about this place is all wrong. Turnover was 200% last year. Just save yourself the headache.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRespect peoples time, be more professional and objective. Actually MANAGE issues among employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company to work for!

    Server (Former Employee)
    Muncie, IN

    ProsFun people, lively restaurant environment! Owner Scott Wise treats his employees w/ respect and is constantly motivating them. As a former sever for Scotty's the constant movement on the job was even beneficial to keeping fit, you never find yourself in one place too long!

    ConsVery large menu makes for difficulty in memorizing menu items, while the menu is vast and has lots to choose from, it can be a bit overwhelming, as a server.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what youre doing!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It was a good experience

    Server (Former Employee)
    Indianapolis, IN

    ProsA lot of beer. Decent pay (if you are a girl). Everything else that is obvious about a restaurant job. A lot of employee outings.

    ConsBad hours, esp if on patio. The people who work there are constantly complaining about life. It was kind of depressing.

    Great for a college student

    Server (Former Employee)
    West Lafayette, IN

    ProsSince this is located in a college town, Scotty's does a great job on working with you and your school schedule.
    There is a great group of people working there.

    ConsVery cliquey, it is hard to get into a group with the people there unless you started with a big group of new employees. If you put yourself out there and try and make friends though, it will happen.
    If you get scheduled a day and need it off, some of the employees aren't willing to help each other out, so make sure you request the days off in advance.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
