    I worked at Connor's Steak and Seafood full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have awesome food. They treat their employees with respect. Management is understanding and show compassion when needed

    Cons

    Front end turnover is high. Watis are very long. For the amount of business that they have the building should be bigger.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Connor's Steak and Seafood (Knoxville, TN) in February 2007.

    Interview

    Noticed opportunity on their website. Contacted their company office and was set up with interview with a Managing Partner of one of their locations. I was asked the normal array of questions such as "What got your interest with Connor Concepts." He asked about past experience, salary requirements and "If I had wheels." which was his conversational way of inquiring as to the possibility of relocation from Knoxville if necessary. He spoke a little about the company and the "Corporate Office" next door which I thought somewhat strange due the fact that Connor Concepts is not a publicly traded company.

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer of 36K was too low. I also got a sense that they may not the company for me when I noticed the greeter sitting down eating(while periodically greeting and seating guests), a cook and too many servers to count on their cell phones. It all comes down to taking care of business everyday and I could tell that this didn't happen that day. Additionally I overheard a brief interaction between a server and what appeared to be a poorly dressed manager discussing how the company doesn't prefer to hire "blacks or mexicans." If this observation was accurate then this place truly requires an overhaul.
