    Pros

    Friendly work environment, benifits to some

    Cons

    Vacation pay for a waitress is a joke, have to fight for any promised extras. I.E. training pay, contest prizes. The hours are manipulated so you miss full time. Example- 3 hour shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Realize people you employees are trying to survive , your company seems to reject this goal.
