    I have been working at bd’s Mongolian Grill full-time (More than 10 years)


    Fast paced, fun environment. With good chemistry, the grillers can make a lot of money in tips! When you get good at grilling and entertaining, guest are happier and tip a great deal. In my experience, the best managers started out as grillers


    The heat! And occasionally the teamwork dynamic can crumble. Not having tip out from servers is a draw back. Used to be able to make my rent with just tip out

    Advice to Management

    Promote and reward grilled more frequently. Or require all FOH staff to grill before becoming servers or host.
