    Pros

    Making new colleagues, putting hard work initially can give you a more of an easy pace later on

    Cons

    too many hours, not enough hours, not paid for what you're worth

    Advice to Management

    food prep is not an easy job. I was able to do it well by myself, and if 3 managers can't do my job, that should speak about how valuable that position is. It's more difficult than all the other jobs. Don't take advantage of your best workers and make sure to pay them what they are worth. You never know if they are thinking the same and end up quitting on you.

    Pros

    Free paper hat!
    Starting pay around $9.00 for production $5.00 for servers.
    Easy to learn various jobs around the kitchen and service area.

    Cons

    Horrible management
    Disgusting conditions
    Aggressive Coworkers
    "Raises" don't actually happen
    Most co-workers are intoxicated at all times
    Meal discount is 40% off, no free meals and discounts only apply while working

    Advice to Management

    I recommend that the management require routine drug screens, conduct actual background checks, and enforce the cleaning standards. Lying about raises that are not reflected on paystubs should also be avoided.
