    I worked at Famous Dave's full-time (More than 3 years)


    I have worked there for several years and it the best run company of the handful that I have worked for. The VP and Owner have great vision for where the company is going and have used that vision to almost quadruple their revenue in the last 7 years. The people are great to work with and everyone gets along pretty well. You are allowed to do your job with no one hovering over you and looking over your shoulder. If you need help with anything, that is always available. after 7 years you get 3 weeks of vacation and 1 week of sick leave, which is better than almost any other company I have been a part of.


    Not a ton of moral boosting things for the staff. The lack of attention can sometimes lead to complacency or sloppiness in work.

    Dishwasher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in East Peoria, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Famous Dave's (East Peoria, IL).


    It was simple and straight forward. Long as I could work the hours expected and was prompt and on time. I was hired, not much needed to qualify though this was a entry level job though so that would be expected.
