    I worked at Bonefish Grill part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The business truly cared about its employees. There was also a lot of room to grow both in the local and national level of this business. It is apart of blooming brands so it was easy to move over if needed.

    Cons

    Like any other restaurant job, money is dependent on customers. Management can get stressed easily. And though you can move up, it was less likely that you would without many years spent with the company.

    Pros

    Flexible and low stress serving.

    Cons

    Management making everything personal. Giving certain servers better section based on politics.

    Advice to Management

    To make it clear what constitutes a write up. Sometimes if your 6 minutes late, it’s not a big deal once every month or so. Other times, they will write you up. Just need to keep more consistency.

          I worked at Bonefish Grill full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          Mid range restaurant. Scheduling depends on if your manager likes you.

          Cons

          They are tenacious in giving you hours just below the amount that will trigger health care.

          Advice to Management

          Have integrity and don’t try to avoid giving fellow human being healthcare.

          I have been working at Bonefish Grill full-time for more than 6 years

          Pros

          Reasonably good seafood restaurant. Functions like any corporate restaurant so any experience will benefit the future employee.

          Cons

          Corporate so it adheres to the labor restrictions and tools. Trending towards the corporate model of streamlining work in way of prepared sauces and foods. Less discipline in the upper management so it shows in food quality.

          Advice to Management

          Bonefish seems to still be promoting within its own company so very good.

          Food is great! Money is there

          Cons

          Servers do work of servers, bussers, runners. Tip out hostesses just to do their job.
