    Pros

    Great people to work with, managers really cared about employees & guests. Training was great & made the job very easy. Fun laid back atmosphere, yet very fast paced when busy. Managers kept everything running smoothly, even by hopping on expo or running food, they helped in every way they could. Great money if you kept a good additude, some girls would go home with $80 - $100 a night where I was always at least making $100- $150.

    Cons

    The Line dancing, ugggh. & sweeping the peanuts at night was brutal. Lots of sidework, but it's a serving job, what can you expect ?

    Advice to Management

    Change the employee discount to at least 50%

  2. Awesome Pick

    Pros

    Tipshare is great as a busser/host
    Good hours
    Not open too early or too late

    Cons

    New management has been rough because of the transition period
    People will pass you even if they don't deserve to. Get used to it.

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on getting the advancement situation in order

    Pros

    enjoyable work environment, close nit co workers, fast paced environment, short hours if not a double, light closing work, if interested, room for growth in the company, steady business, majority of the time we are on a weight

    Cons

    overworked, high turn over rate, 3 table sections, high tip out, when the managers get stressed out we all do. The kitchen is often running long ticket times which causes the wait staff to fall behind, micromanaged

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees and do not think that you are above them because that s how you lose dedicated workers. Be able to work with life situations because you can't avoid them.
