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

    Pros

    The tv's in there which kept me occupied when no one would come in for a while. The nice people which you meet in the meantime while working there. Obviously, depending on the location. The tips were pretty good as a greeter and it helped me come by.

    Cons

    When they see that you've not done something right, they will immediately degrade you so if you feel like that LEAVE.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees normally even if you decide to terminate them at some point, don't degrade anyone when you want them to leave.

    Pros

    I love waiting tables. This is a great environment. Very fun and Upbeat

    Cons

    Depending on which location you work at, my mangers were not the best at knowing how to run a restaurant. No rules were enforced.

    Advice to Management

    The fish rots from the top of the head first. Just remember that your the one suppose to be setting the example, especially if you want your employees to follow suit.
