    The managers make or break your store.

    General Managers and managers alike should be more receptive and understanding to their employees, adhering to the corporate culture that the higher ups instill.

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

    Pros

    They will send you to a sister restaurant to train before getting to your location.

    Cons

    Talk about a revolving door! I should have taken the hint when in training, the managers that were training me were already out the door. I was warned that no manager has lasted for more than 6 months working for the GM of the location I was to start working at and it turned out to be true. They only care about the numbers and not really give quality food or service.
    No work/ life balance whats so ever and it's one of the things they preach and promise. The GM tells you that they will approve your time off then tell you last minute that they can only approve half the time. You won't get support from your GM or corporate if you have false complaints from guests trying to get free stuff. Instead you are blamed and punished with out anyone investigating. If you stand up for yourself and provide proof that the complaint is false (cameras don't lie) you don't get an apology just more scolding for wasting time. You preach accountability but none is taken.

    Advice to Management

    If you have a lot of managers quitting or are fired with no real reason it's time to look at the GM. Your restaurants have so much potential if you have happy employees

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

    Pros

    They really care about the quality of service as well as the happiness of their employees. I made so much money and really enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    Long hours and the guests can be pretty cruel. It comes with the level of service you provide. Still nicer guests than in any other restaurants I’ve worked in

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing!

    I have been working at Del Frisco's Restaurant Group part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    this company has the money to spend on the tools the staff needs to succeed. 130+ dollar per head average (at the double eagle tier) means if you can sell, you just need that one table to order big to take your nightly earnings from competetive to unparalleled.

    Cons

    management needs more training and mentorship from upper management. servers and bartenders at this level often have past management experience themselves so when you have a weak manager, it really shows. frustration often rises from those that think they can do a better job but don’t exactly want to a manager role.

    Advice to Management

    it isn’t shameful to ask for more help from upper management. that pride hurts everyone. in addition, if you aren’t personally seeking professional excellence, find another job.

    Pros

    A challenging and hands on career at which my people skills are continually tested and developed.

    Cons

    The schedule can make it hard to have any life outside work considering they don't provide a set schedule for their employees to plan around.
