      Pros

      Great money great fun environment flexible work home life barely

      Cons

      You can get fired for walkouts even when you ask a manager they don’t really care to help you because it’s your job that will be lost not theirs also a manager that’s more worried about being stern than taking action in needed areas is a huge drawback and makes you feel unappreciated.. long 12 hr shifts be prepared for your weekend to be gone... no one verifies if a customer has paid and willingly let customers play eat and leave an unpaid bill that can get you fired with no real guarantee of a future job because walkouts deem write ups or on demand firing not worth the effort you put in as a professional seasoned server no real room for growth with the company during this pandemic no matter how hard you work or express interest

      Not sure if it was just that location, but it was the most unorganized unprofessional company I've ever been with. Management cannot be found when needed. My schedule would change and I would not be asked or notified.
