Great experience for an intern

Pastry Intern (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at The Dinex Group as an intern for less than a year

ProsWorking with amazing chefs, and a team of fun but serious workers who all have very positive attitudes. Had the opportunity to attend NYC F&B event while assisting the pastry chef (I was in Pastry). Really good experience. I was an intern back then.

ConsThere really isn't any I can think of. The restaurant is really busy so prepare to work a lot (with lots of passion too ;)).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great management, fun place to work, average money

Server (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at The Dinex Group full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI cant speak for the other restaurants, but the one I work at has an amazing boss. Smart and outstanding at his job, but also very cool on a personal level. Insurance is a rarity in serving jobs so that is a big plus. The people and the insurance are the reason I've stayed as long as I have.

ConsThe money is below what you would expect. Too many hands in the cookie jar. My experience in NYC is the typical tipout (to bussers/runners/bar) is 40-45%. Here with "managers" (sommeliers, matire d, etc), we tip out around 65%. Making $500 in tips a night but only actually getting to keep $150 is very frustrating.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive "managers" a salary so servers don't have to share their money. Other than that, no complaints!
