    Pros

    Get to eat all the time. The Executives are fair overall. Lots of managers to work with.

    Cons

    The hours are very long. You have to be able to move in 5th gear.

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

    Pros

    Good discounts, get paid well, good benefits

    Cons

    Not enough hours so technically if you don't get those hours, you can't be considered full-time and don't qualify for benefits

    Advice to Management

    Respect your staff and have their backs. Don't let the guests stomp all over them just because they're a wine club member.

    I worked at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. Literally none. There was absolutely not one enjoyable aspect of working for this company.

    Cons

    Awful management- inability to solve basic issues going on with employees. Awful pay. Not given the amount of hours promised. Tons of favoritism. Never have worked in a restaurant with more drama in my life.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage

    I have been working at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants full-time

    Pros

    Free wine tasting, 50% off food

    Cons

    Hiring too many hosts. Keep a certain amount especially those who are good at their job

    Advice to Management

    Stop over hiring please! That cuts down hours and takes away from other employees

    Pros

    Work can be fun if the customers are friendly.

    Cons

    They don't care at all about their employees. I mentioned that they should be offering tasting room associates breaks during the day. The general manger replied back that breaks aren't required for employees who work less than 8 hours. Not only is this not true, it is extremely disrespectful. If you cared about your employees you would want them to comfortable on the job.
