    My experience as a Fridays Bartender

    Bartender (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThis job provides great training to create a well rounded, highly knowledgeable, and very higher-able bartender. This includes great customer service, drink knowledge, food service knowledge, etc.

    ConsThe corporate nature of the business leaves little to the imagination. After working there for 3 years, I was left feeling unfulfilled in terms of career and financial growth.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Bartender/ server

    Server/Bartender (Former Employee) Humble, TX

    ProsThey work around your schedule and it is always easy to pick up or give away shifts. It is a fun place to work with great people. Teamwork is key. If you work hard management will notice and you will receive good shifts and positions

    ConsIt is the typical serving job, the money/ tips can have seasonal bad months. 2.13 barely covers taxes, you wont get a paycheck.

    Advice to Senior Managementmanagement is awesome. loved all my managers and GM.
