More Pros and Cons

  1. "Work Hard"

    Former Employee - Hostess in Holland, MI

    I worked at Buffalo Wild Wings part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast pace environment. As a host or hostess you have a lot of responsibilities such as taking customers to their tables, cashiering, taking phone orders, handling take out orders, and running food out to servers tables.

    Cons

    It can be stressful for everyone's positions. Cooks, servers, and hosts.

    I worked at Buffalo Wild Wings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome bosses
    Cool environment
    Sports theme
    Cool uniform

    Cons

    Don't enforce tipout (this could be a pro for servers)
    Don't enforce teamwork

    Advice to Management

    Although it is nice to have a chill management team, sometimes they lack control over their workers. This allows servers to not run food and drinks for other servers like in most restaurants. People alsoget away with not cleaning or cooking side work

  3. "It's a serving job"

    I worked at Buffalo Wild Wings part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very relaxed even when it was busy. Great opportunity to socialize. Management let’s you do whatever you want for the most part.

    Cons

    When management let’s you do whatever you like other coworkers also can do things that you would not normally encounter at another job.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing a decent job, it’s hard work. But, keep personal relationships out of the workplace.
