    I have been working at howl at the moon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -I get paid a flat rate per show - I do four shows a week for $125 a show
    -Once I'm done with training, I'll also get tips, which will add hundreds of dollars a week to my income
    -Health benefits
    -I came in only knowing how to sing and play piano and guitar - they taught me bass and drums.
    -I'm always learning new songs and new skills for entertaining, so it's interesting and challenging work.
    -I get paid to sing and play piano, bass, guitar and drums!

    Cons

    -I work only evenings and weekends, which can be challenging for my sleep schedule and general life (dating?)
    -I would like to get paid more because I practice at least 10 hours a week outside of the time I'm actually at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your entertainers more. They're earning you a huge amount of money by bringing in customers who want to hear awesome live music.

    I worked at howl at the moon

    Pros

    Great perks including location and free drinks. You can reserve tables for family members at a discounted price and there is an occasional group field trip of you work in the offices.

    Cons

    Having to Work "bar" holidays like St Patricks day but not finding out until the night before. Having to use the same bathrooms at the bar patrons. Lazy GM

    If you're a man, you'll get ahead... VERY sexist, woman-demeaning corporate office

    I have been working at howl at the moon

    Pros

    Cash every night. Live entertainment. Always have fun when you go into work. Very easy work

    Cons

    No life on the weekends. Job requires weekends a must so you lose out on your night time social life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a switchoff for weekends with the girls. One girl gets off this saturday and the next week a different girl gets off one day on the weekend...

    I have been working at howl at the moon

    Pros

    Independent feeling.
    good place to grow.
    good bonus structure

    Cons

    No budget to go off of
    little chance for advancement
    company is ran by family, so some people are in place that shouldn't be

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Negotiate your salary because you rarely get a raise
    make sure you understand the bonus
    they want you to work all the time..

    I worked at howl at the moon part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Management is great and really cares about the staff. They will take the initiative to train you in your desired area (i.e. bartending, serving, or administration). Working here gave me the opportunity to learn a lot of things about various client bases and customer service.

    Cons

    Probably one of the only cons is that weekends are required. If you don't mind working every Friday and Saturday night (which is standard for any bar), then this won't be a problem for you.
