    Pros

    Great environment. The people were very fun and you get a great discount on food which is great for getting to eat good food for cheaper.

    Cons

    Variable hours and very dependent on time of year. Management varies on strictness of enforcing different policies

    Pros

    I really enjoy working here. There is a true family atmosphere in the day-to-day work environment. The employees work together very well, have respect for each other, and we have a good time while working. The majority of management is very approachable and respectful. Management is understanding when it comes to family obligations and the earning potential is very good overall as well. There also seems to be many opportunities to move up if you are willing to work hard and pay your dues (in longevity with the company). Employee meal provided each day prior to your shift. Many contests and opportunities to earn company promo for food and drinks. Also, 50% discount for employees and their family is great. They have food and drink runners at my restaurant. This is great because less time is spent running around delivering food and drinks and you have more time to spend with customers. (However, keep in mind that you also tip out to the runners and bussers as well!) TS also gets involved in the local community by offering opportunities to volunteer for local causes. Overall a great place to work!

    Cons

    Off season is decreased earning potential, so must save for that time period. A little overstaffed at times, but that is because this island is so transient and many people come and go. I assume management figures its better to be overstaffed than understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Good money not because of quality tips but high volume. Always busy due to location

    Cons

    Young management staff behave inappropriately with staff. Inconsistent management. Major favoritism. Many unhappy employees that are overworked and very very unappreciated. Only favorites get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    None. Too much of the management is involved to change the ways. Compensate your employees more. They really work hard and deserve real benefits or compensation not "dukes bucks"


  6. Great short term job. Incapable and short-sighted management.

    Pros

    Met a lot of friends. Good money and great food. Loved the location.

    Cons

    Management was often immature and also uneducated. Most managers did not have a college degree and often made fun of employees who did. Sexual harassment and bullying is a huge issue that was often swept under the carpet. Also, management tended to fraternize with it's employees, often hurting or getting employees fired. Management had no real vision other than employing it's current model. It's a good ole' boys club that has no real interest in cultivating professionalism and ingenuity in their employees. Mangers were often hypocritical and unethical.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up! Get an education and be professional.


  7. Great company to work for! All of their restaurants are highly successful and you can make a great living working there.

    Pros

    Awesome training program that stresses 'connecting with guests' and 'building long lasting relationships with guests as family' They really treat everyone with respect -the Aloha Spirit is felt from all levels of management!

    Cons

    They only have 13 locations, so the options to go into management are few (even though they promote from within, which is great). That coupled with the fact that NO ONE ever leaves, can make it challenging to move up.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you are doing -your employees love working for you!

    Pros

    Location, steady stream of customers. Fellow employees are great to work with and a lot of teamwork. You get a discount to eat here at 50 percent off. We are the number 1 restaurant in sales .

    Cons

    No benefits like 401k, paid sick time. etc You also have to purchase your own uniforms, shoes, and management automatically takes .25 cents off of your base pay so you actually only make 7.00 an hour instead of 7.25 . I have noticed that management seems to focus only on the bad issues of the employees and do not praise them enough. Moral around the workplace is going south.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Encourage them. Praise them when they do their job right. Do not just "punish" them and never praise them.

    Pros

    Nice location, good food and reputation, and good work hours. Fun company events. Employees remain employed for long periods of time and can be treated like family.

    Cons

    Employees are very chatty and casual at work, managers tend to overlook hard working employees and become buddy-buddy with employees that "cruise". Some employees are not respectful to one another. Some employees bring drama and personal issues to work.

    Advice to Management

    Have regular reviews of employees. Give employees chances to advance to higher positions. Make sure employees are not "cruising".
