    I worked at Del Frisco's Restaurant Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The money and benefits were great. Significantly better than the competition

    Cons

    The company makes sure you never forget that you are a cog in their wheel and can be replaced at any time. I witnessed them ignore HR complaints time and time again while I was there, often terminating the squeaky wheel to protect management.

    I worked at Del Frisco's Restaurant Group part-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Good money.Had a family feeling work environment.

    Cons

    Some of the management at the time was very uptight. Good people but really pushed hard to meet goals and try to up-sell all guests and would be on top of you if goals weren't met.

    Pros

    Great coworkers and guests. The back of house was so great to work with

    Cons

    Hard hours, inconsisant pay, new management was aweful

    Advice to Management

    Listen to more than just the angressive hit chick you made a manager. Her bad attitude and mean way of handling any situation made it horrible to work for ya'll. You don't have to be act like that to be a leader that is a woman.

    I have been working at Del Frisco's Restaurant Group full-time

    Pros

    The ceiling for how much you can earn in a shift is uncapped.

    Cons

    Most to all of the service work falls on your shoulders with little support team help.
