    I worked at Black Bear Diner part-time

    Pros

    If you're looking to keep busy and gain experience as a host fast this is the place!

    Cons

    The best hours are in the morning, the restaurant gets super packed, and if one of your fellow hosts either don't show or show up late it's a handful (not worth the pay).

    Advice to Management

    Hire a balanced amount of gender staff, the amount of females makes it look like there's a preference for females. It feels like there's an inherent preference towards female hosts than males.
    Speak with your staff and have direct communication with them.
    Stop giving your cooks overtime hours they don't deserve. I've seen cooks washing their shoes while on the clock AFTER being done with their shift.
