    I worked at Del Frisco's Restaurant Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent life balance. True to their word. I loved all the higher ups and My GM David at the Brentwood location was awesome and so was the staff. If it weren't for me trying to leave Nashville and change my career I would have stayed with this group.

    Keep it up and more pay is always nice

    Pros

    The managers are always making sure their employees are doing well. They always are having contests for servers (maybe other positions too, that I don't know about), and the prizes for winning are always awesome! They are accommodating and understanding about a work-life balance. Benefits for part time employees is a big pro!

    Cons

    It's the restaurant industry, need I say more. It is a love hate relationship but thats a generality


  10. "Love this Company!"

    Pros

    They really care about their employee's and put in time and effort to train you in order to give you the tools for success in order to be the best you at work.

    Cons

    Business ebbs and flows depending on the season, so be prepared to handle different influxes with guests and what they expect from you.

    Advice to Management

    Stay consistent with all of your employee's and don't play favorites because it could cause problems within the staff.
