What is paid time off like at Landry's?

Pros

Donuts every Friday. And gym in the building. And casual attire. Sad that I can’t think of anything about the job itself.

Cons

Everything else. You have to pay for the employee discount which is 10 every check. Salary is paid twice a month. You get 50% at most restaurants and 25% at the higher end ones like Morton’s and Oceanaire. Some hotel and retail discounts but those are so expensive on their own the discounts don’t do anything. Health care is impossibly expensive. About 1000$ for family number of kids don’t matter. Dental and vision is typical and reasonable. No flexibility. If you take off you have to make it up or taken vacation. Even for 30 minutes. But you can’t come in early and take a longer lunch apparently. Manager structure is ridiculously confusing. Every manager watches ever employee and tells each other everything. No leniency. You have a regular manager and then each manager is in charge of certain concepts but you might not have you manager as a concept manager. Depending on the task you have to know if you should report to your manager or your concept manager. Now for the actual work they treat you like a work horse and push work on you without asking you are comfortable with it. When I started in 2017 max number of stores was 9 now in 2019 it’s 11. Granted things are slightly simpler than it was but at the same time it’s more complex. For example on reviews they ask you not to explain most items but they when you turn it in the come back with a while email of questions for thing you were not supposed to explain. Managers are petty. Omg so petty. They try to act professional but it comes of as condescending. They tell you to ask for help but then scold you when you do. They act concerned but do nothing to show it. The accounting president encourages accountant to find other jobs and no one show appreciation. Raises are 1-3% per year depending on performance based on you managers opinions. There is no formal review with notes or any reasons on how they come up with their answer. So for example I have a hard manager by that I mean robot. And I thought I did excellent last better than most others. And I got 2% and others who couldn’t handle as many store as me got 3%. There is growth but only if someone dies or leaves. Senior accounts are rare and have to be gear for 5+ years. From what I see.

Advice to Management

Read the employee reviews and do something about it.

If you take off you have to make it up or taken vacation.

Does Landry's offer family leave?

Pros

Hardly any. Occasional free tickets to Rockets games or concerts when you work at corporate.

Cons

Landry’s was the worst company I’ve ever worked for. It’s reputation ( and the owner’s) in the city of Houston is not a positive one. The corporate office is dirty ( live cockroaches seen, disgusting bathrooms) and the attire they allow their employees to wear is a joke. ( hoodies, flip flops, dated clothing and lack thereof!) The higher up’s treat you like a number, they do not care about their employees at all. They also are the biggest micro managers I’ve ever experienced. The health insurance is an absolute joke and extremely expensive- I had $300 total coming off my checks every month! Maternity leave is a joke, along with a low amount of sick days, no personal days, crappy vacation. I witnessed firsthand how the owner treats his employees- cussed and screamed at someone in front of others. He is abrasive and rude- just goes to say money doesn’t buy class! Their brands are dated and trashy, and some of their restaurants are poorly maintained and dirty. They are disorganized and do not follow through on promises. Need I say more? DO NOT WORK FOR LANDRYS!!!

Advice to Management

Treat your employees with respect and kindness- it goes a long way. Communicate, don’t just assume! Quit micromanaging people! Get some class! Set a professional dress code! Modernize your brands!
