    I worked at Cameron Mitchell Restaurants full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They care a lot. Food quality is excellent. They like to get employee feedback in a great anonymous way. The atmosphere is great. You wake up and want to go to work.

    Cons

    They have sometimes put too much faith in people who should not have been promoted to management. And it makes the work environment difficult

    Advice to Management

    Before promoting someone, make sure they actually pass the empty chair test. And if you find that there's been a mistake, actually do something to teach the new manager rather than shrug your shoulders as an "oh well"

    Pros

    Culture and philosophies
    Growth of current employees is a core value
    Allows for associate empowerment
    Creativity is encouraged
    Lucrative if in service department
    Growing company

    Cons

    Competitive for promotion
    You get micro- managed a lot
     If salary based you may find your self working over time ALOT
    If hourly the pay is low
    Will cut hours due to pressure from upper management

    Advice to Management

    We have gone so corporate! Care that your associates (all- tipped/hourly/salary) are being paid well and can balance work/quality of life

    I worked at Cameron Mitchell Restaurants part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High volume, well known company

    Cons

    Overstaffed, managers do not make cuts when business is slow, abusive coworkers that management does not do anything about

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of all the small things just because the company is obsessed with constant growth and you have a high salary with abundant vacation time.

    Pros

    The company culture is amazing and it is why Cameron Mitchell Restaurants is the top restaurant company in Columbus. My restaurant was almost always busy so its not hard to make money. Servers are professionals that help each other be successful. Kitchen is amazingly fast and dependable.

    Cons

    Guests take advantage of the "guest is always right" mentality which makes employee's jobs harder

    Advice to Management

    Make promotion opportunities more available to servers. Only hire managers who have some serving experience.

    Pros

    Cameron Mitchell Restaurants treat all of their employees extremely well. They were flexible with my schedule while I was in school for 4 years and needed to work towards paying off my student loans. (Plus the discounts are amazing)

    Cons

    I don't really have a downside of working for Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. I really enjoyed the people I work with and my bosses were great. Best restaurant to work for hands down.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to the ideas of all employees as some of them have great ideas for continuous growth and improvement.

    Continue to grow and expand to more cities.
