    I have been working at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The discount on food
    The people there are awesome
    Many opportunities to grow
    Always something for you to do
    The managers are really there to help
    The training was so knowledgeable

    Cons

    I'm seeing some of my coworkers slacking, the servers are lazy with some of their closing procedures leaving everyone else to finish it for them

    Some days the closing procedures are hectic and you won't leave til midnight or 1

    The table set up was hard at first but you'll get the hang of it

    Small or no break for a full 8 hour shift

    Advice to Management

    You guys are doing great! Let's have a conversation with the servers please

    - Flexible Schedule
    - Since its a growing company their are tons of opportunities for growth!

    - Since it is a kitchen from scratch, it takes time to learn because of how precise recipes are but once you start to understand kitchen basics and learn from your mistakes it will become an everyday thing for you.
