    Pros

    very nice quality of life the systems are easy to follow. It is very relaxed and has a family feel,

    Even with very reasonable work hours you need to stay on the move to keep up and leave on time. Oh wait that is a good thing.

    Pros

    I worked here before Team Service, and loved that they added team service!! They really updated the training as well.

    Cons

    The training workbooks are awesome as stated above... But super cheesy. I also had some issues with management but that particular manager is no longer with company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, changing the restaurant decor, menus and bars. I love that when something doesn't work, it gets changed.
