    Pros

    It was a flexible job for a high school student who needed extra cash for the side,i would recommend to others.

    Cons

    Late hours for a high school student and the other staff could be inappropriate and rude. Manager was fine but not great.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more dependable people who are actually going to cover their shift and not slack off. Just hire more people.

    Owner is such a jerk his turn over rate for the front and ESPECIALLY back of house(where he primarilly worked) was out the roof.

    I worked at Colton's Steakhouse (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff really got along very well and almost always came together as a team.

    Cons

    Restaurant guests were notorious for leaving poor tips if they left anything at all. The management enforced a policy that required us to claim 10% of our total sales regardless if we made it or not.

    Advice to Management

    It is really unfair to make the wait staff claim more tips than they made. I think the servers should get the choice to claim what they actually made.

    I worked at Colton's Steakhouse full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great team. Servers and hosts are good and work together pretty well and get a long. Food is great.

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible. Owners are money hungry leading to poor payouts to employees and management. No room for advancement since you have to pay in and buy share to even run a store as a managing partner. No raises, ever. They underlay their managers and kitchen members. No benefits what so ever. Works managers for less wages and more hours. Some work 50 to 70 hours. Servers cannot work more than 30 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees. Offer respect. Treat your employees as you would a customer. Customers bring in your income, but If you treat your staff with disrespect, it will affect their treatment of the guests that bring in the money.

    Pros

    Zero pros. Zero. There's not one single good thing that I can say about anyone or anything in this "restaurant".

    Cons

    Not one single manager that was there when I was there ever helped anybody. Ever. Seriously. It was the worst job experience of my life.

    I have been working at Colton's Steakhouse (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Steak house - chicken and ribs , can't go wrong

    Cons

    . No human resource - 10 years as gm I never recieved a pay increase nor cost of living increase . Each unit under staffed on team members and Mgrs

    Advice to Management

    The opened this company years ago a Dillion's steak house . Closed down and reopened as Colton's steakhouse . No good benefits for management and no one to voice your concerns to . They do not use regionals so the gm is pretty much responsible for everyone team and Mgrs and HR . Under paid - over worked environment . Units run one manager short in each unit to save money . Very rarely would you see a bonus check as company showing negative sales growth with climbing food cost
