      A company that will truly teach you the importance of teamwork, communication and customer service!

      Pros

      Teaches you to communicate with your co-workers to make things run smoothly between the front and back of house which projects outward to the service you can provide to a guest. Teaches you to pay attention to detail (customer body language, cleanliness, best menu options for your guests, what your guests need or are going to need soon, etc.) Multitasking skills to guide you to accomplish multiple tasks early on so the rest is smooth sailing which helps you to relax and provide better customer service and be a better co-worker.

      Cons

      Can be stressful if you have difficult guests, co-workers and sometimes even management. You're really relying on good business to make a decent amount of money. If it's a slow day, you're not going to get nearly as many table's which equals less tips and which also could mean you're overstaffed for the shift which could mean getting sent home hours earlier than what you're scheduled to, which is then losing out on hourly wage too

      Pros

      Tips are decent for Marion Ohio. Its probably one of the most go to restaurants still even after covid. Has its loyal customers

      Cons

      The way it’s ran now after covid is detrimental to the employees mental health and needs a whole new management team and crew. Time to shed things and people who no longer serve us as we do them

      A place to start, but not to grow.

      Pros

      • Small company environment. Less than 100 total corporate employees means everyone knows everyone. • A good place to start a career in Tech for self-starters • Due to how few employees there are, and how much of the business you support, you quickly gain experience with many different technologies. And will be asked to do/run with things that are beyond the scope of your job • Room to learn. Due to no training program or career plan, it's very open-ended and you can attack problems with your own approach

      Cons

      • Small company environment. Less than 100 total corporate employees means everyone knows everyone and everything • Small company brings a weird environment where they want to be/act like family but like any business only cares about the bottom dollar • Not a place for growth • Not a lot of support from management, despite there being a lot of managers per employee • Micromanagement is the management style • You will do/ be in charge of more than your job description without the pay bump or recognition • A lot of overturn. Too many people come and go, engineers, managers, analysts will work for a year or two then leave the company for better opportunities. Leaving huge knowledge gaps and half-finished projects. • Document repository has changed process/places several times with new managers. Leaving documents and KB articles behind and people unaware of the process • We can’t replace the people we have lost because upper management does not recognize the market change, and does not want to pay competitively for the level of experience we need

      Pros

      Good community for my store, can be a little chaotic at times but definitely more chill than other places. My location has amazing management but not good wages and scheduling. Definitely good for managing wages and serving for minors and young adults in college!

      Cons

      Customers can be a bit creepy at times, especially when it comes to women. I have had multiple experiences with older men hitting on me as a host and I have had pictures taken of me by an older woman and they did nothing about it except call the police.
