  4. "Poor management"

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Hostess 

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

    Pros

    Easy job, flexible hours, nice coworkers

    Cons

    Management turnover is very high. In fact, I feel like I have a new manager every few months. Because of this, no one is ever invested in the employees. It's clear that bad attitudes come down from the top (the very top) which is really unfortunate. Good employees just aren't appreciated but bad employees aren't really acknowledged either so I guess it makes sense. There's also not a lot of room to go upwards in the company...

        Pros

        Most nights you make decent money. Training is great.

        Cons

        Typical restaurant industry work. Management is constantly changing. Being a corporate restaurant they don't stand up for their employees. All of my managers would hand out free coupons and comp checks for guests to keep them from contacting corporate.
