    I have been working at Buffalo Wild Wings part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very faced paced, especially Thursday through Sunday nights. Guest interaction is always a plus, even as a cashier/greeter, I have made many friends that I spend time with outside of work from guests who come in regularly. Coworkers are a hit or miss

    Cons

    Many servers act like they own the world. Some cooks will not remake an order that they messed up on in a timely manner. Managers will often be found in the office doing nothing or playing on their phones, but if you step into the back to take a call from a family member, you get a write up for being on your phone. They also allow people to call in "sick" all the time, with many, many repeat offenders. But I, I get in trouble for calling in when a family member was in the hospital not doing well at all.

    Advice to Management

    Please, please, please, reconsider your choices and actions. Get off your butt and go help out your employees when needed. Get on the floor and interact with guests. Keep an eye on employees slacking off and get them into shape.
