    Poor management

    Jul 24, 2021 - Server in Sumter, SC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The customers aren't always bad. Some nights have 300 dollars in tips, some nights only 50 dollars. I made friends with alot of people I worked with and enjoyed coming to work to see them.

    Cons

    Very poor management. No one to help front of the house, bad scheduling with either not enough people scheduled or too many people call out. You have to tip out the bar and serve assistant. Which might not sound too bad but there's nights where your tipout could me almost half of what you made if it was a bad night. If you get alot of people who spend alot on alcohol but don't tip thats money out of your own pocket for bar tipout and serve assistant tipout is 5 percent of total sales. So if your tips are bad but you did decent in sales you're loosing a good chunk of money for tipouts. No one helps anyone at all.
