    I have been working at Carlson Restaurants full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Cash daily, relaxed work environment, potential to make great money

    Cons

    constant change in culture, and specials, stressed out managers, if no one comes to the bar you don't make any money.

    Advice to Management
