    The customers are great, awesome relationships have been built

    50+ hour work weeks with low pay for management. Change of bonus program every year since been there.

    Pay your employees much better or closer to the average. Want to be compared to certain restaurants but pay 30% less

    Pros

    Family oriented if you're working for an independent company. Nice atmosphere and they promote within first

    Cons

    Skyline needs to fire nasty customers that make that job more stressful

    Advice to Management

    Pay your assistant managers better. We do 90% of the work and don't get enough credit for what we do.
