Featured Review

Current Employee - Host

I have been working at California Pizza Kitchen part-time for less than a year

Pros

- No workplace drama - Easy to get time off (2 weeks advanced notice)

Cons

- Can get really busy - Customers have some ridiculous requests

Current Employee - General Manager

I have been working at Islands Restaurants full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Strong, fun, and welcoming culture. Career advancement is there for those capable of earning it.

Cons

Not so much an Islands thing, but the industry is in a weird place right now.
