    I worked at Bonefish Grill full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money if you work hard and aren't lazy. Mgmt favors those who work hard. Can be fun and good food. Food menu is easy to learn As well as drinks.

    Cons

    Your manager can be horrible and can ruin your day, all your days. Randomly be obsessed with someone until they leave, they don't care about loyal employees.

    Advice to Management

    Trying to do things to mAke staff mad is not a good idea. Cutting sections, lowering shifts. I saw it all the time to loyal people who were good at their job.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Bonefish Grill full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible hours Ability to pick up extra shifts There is nothing else positive about Bonefish Don't work here. It's absolutely horrid.

    Cons

    Scheduling was inconsistent. Majority of the managers are incompetent and unprofessional. HR is unreliable. Managers treat employees poorly including harassing them and absolutely NOTHING is done about it. Money isn't that great either. There is no gratuity because the company is cheap and won't do the extra paperwork in order to include it. Also no bussers. Bonefish also doesn't pay hosts. They force the servers to...

    Advice to Management

    Stop being sexist, racist, and plain rude.

    I have been working at Bonefish Grill part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great restaurant and product. Easy to sell something you love. Nice atmosphere. Some locations are pretty busy. The company promotes from within so there are a lot of advancement opportunities if you seek them out.

    Cons

    Slow stores tend to be overstaffed which makes it difficult to make money if you are a tipped employee. Concept is constantly being explored and re-envisioned by senior management; keeping track of menu and concept changes can be frustrating.

    Pros

    Great staff, great management Great concept with constant seasonal changes to their menu to keep up with the times. Management does a great job at checking quality of food and dining experience

    Cons

    hospitality can be stressful sometimes especially in a semi-fine dining establishment, Hours can be long since they've opened for lunch with little to no benefit to your pocket at times.

    Advice to Management
