    I worked at Tavern at The Park full-time


    Great co-workers, managers do give their all. They are understanding. Everyone other than the owners are genuine kind people trying to make a living. I don't know how the managers do it on what little they make, they work 60 plus hours a week. And salary I heard averages 600 a week. I worked 40 plus hours a week, my check, once a week, was never more than 800. That's including 14 percent tip out from the servers and 6.95 hourly wage. I had no clue where my money was going. It is completely true what the below review said about "sweatshop in the park"


    The managers were nitpicky on everything. It was hard to take them seriously when we already had to do the job as a cleanup crew after serving or bartending. We had to scrub the outdoor patio. It literally was an extra 2 hours to break down everything after a shift. And I know that can be normal but literally as long as I have been in the industry, I never felt like I had to do that kind of manual labor. The owners do not care what little their employees make, obviously because they are buying outdoor air conditioners (2) that were said to cost 3000 dollars. How ridiculous to have an air conditioner on a rooftop patio with very little coverage. The turnover is extreme in every position: cook, busser, manager, sever, bartender. It was nothing new to have an employee walk out on a busy night. We were busy a lot too, which is why it's so frustrating to see how crappy our check was after it all. My bones hurt after each week. I would never work for this company again.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your staff more because we all know you guys are doing well in the money department, or get used to continually hiring new staff all year long.
