    I have been working at Cadillac Ranch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company in Pittsburgh is great. Most of the staff know what they are doing and are really good at their jobs, which is why I think this place is good to not only work but to visit as a customer as well. I think that if you love the people you work with and are trusted you can go very far in the service industry since people want to be served by an actual caring and live person rather than a robot. And tips reflect that fact. Also generally managers have the staff's back.

    Cons

    There is some staff doing sub-par work, though few and far between, and it does cause a headache for some other employees.

    Advice to Management

    I would look at finding a way to have guests give you a written review at their tables at the time of their service so that you get a quick and accurate response on what the feel was for their visit. This may get more results than surveys and will allow them to show their appreciation of their service without having to sign up their email account.

    I worked at Cadillac Ranch part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great money, fun atmosphere, only open three days a week, food only part of the shift

    Cons

    Long shifts (typically 10+ hour shifts for the money), bad, malicious management, too many untrained security guards around, dirty bars, outdated appliances

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the place and it would really shine like it used to. Pick one concept of what you represent and go after it.

    Pros

    Pretty good tipouts on weekends

    Walking up and down the flight of stairs without a lot of room to work with. Worse than usual hourly pay for support positions.

    Advice to Management

    Don't keep multiple runners on late

    Pros

    The company seems like it is moving in the right direction for the most part. Benefits and pay were good.

    Cons

    The locations are all very different and it was hard to define what the restaurants wanted to be.

    Pros

    Generally, great employees due to the unit's hiring process. Interesting concept. Great curb appeal.

    Cons

    Terrible/non-existent corporate support. Muddled execution of concept. Management staff are over-worked and this, combined with no real-world support at the corporate level, creates apathy that can spread throughout the unit.

    Advice to Management

    Execution and delivery of promises creates loyalty. As employees are always the most important asset to any service industry unit, go the "extra mile" to ensure that these tenets are followed. The result will be increased, positive guest responses, higher employee morale, and loyalty from top to bottom that will be infectious to your clientele. In other words, CARE about the people that enter your buildings including employees.

    Pros

    I work primarily off of tips. The money that I am able to make in a short amount of time is the only benefit of working at Cadillac Ranch.

    Cons

    Cadillac Ranch does not respect their employees. They are very un-organized and you do not receive any sort of compensation at all. They do not have any sort of health care as most restaurants do that are a semi-large company; however they do not. The people that you constantly are dealing with, the lack of interest that management takes in their employees. There is rarely an opportunity for growth and if you by chance that you were promoted, they would not pay you legitimately and lay you off or fire you the first time money fell short from the owners opening up another store. Not a very stable place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe incorporate some leadership style and implement it on a day to day basis. Give respect in order to receive respect
