    Pros

    Bluewater is a great place to start working if you don't have much experience as a bartender. They gave me a shot bartending with almost no experience, and I learned a lot!

    Cons

    Management...some of the management can be hard to get along with at times, but what place isn't like that?

    Advice to Management

    Take your job seriously...but not TOO seriously. When I worked there, I had some problems with management because they let that get to their heads. They forgot what a great work environment Bluewater Grill really is, and what it can be.

    Pros

    Good money year round if you are good and liked. Clientele are outstanding....they range from generous to friendly to extremely gorgeous

    Cons

    If you are not a top performer, you will not get the best sections and shifts and thus will not make nearly as much as the top performers...not even close

    Advice to Management

    Select and train employees extremely well and set the corporate culture and precedence up front, then step out of the way and let us do what we do best


  6. "Good place to work once you're "in""

    Pros

    You can make $100-300 a night, however, you will have to have gained the trust and confidence of management and senior employees in order to get the best sections and to be put on the banquet parties. The people are great to work with and the job is very entrepreneurial

    Cons

    There are three bars in which customers can choose, so on a slow night, it will be even slower for the bartenders. The management is mostly clueless, and refers to the manual for every decision that needs to be made instead of accessing the situation at hand.

    Advice to Management

    Employees work 100% for the customers because of the incentives in place (tips)....so let them! and listen to them!
