    I worked at Eat'n Park full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, pretty cool people. Very easy to switch shifts with coworkers, everyone wants to help out for the most part.

    Cons

    Never get out at scheduled time and it's not always worth the money. It's a crappy restaurant and people treat it that way - full of teens on the weekends who never tip, entitled old people during the day. Management is cool but will 100% take advantage of you if you tell them you have an open schedule. Lots of favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    GM doesn't act like a GM. The managers and assistant managers do all the work while he reaps the benefits of his title. 10/10 needs to do more.

    I worked at Eat'n Park part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great flexible schedule. Good hours very friendly people as well as great environment to work in. Best management team I've worked for.

    Cons

    Long drive, several call offs which means bigger work load on the shift that was called off. Healthcare wasn't really good.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. But at the same time you guys and gals need to take work load off of the position that was called off.

    I have been working at Eat'n Park full-time

    Pros

    Serving the public and having a strong bond with customers who have total apprecitation for me.

    Cons

    Management has zero desire to discipline employees..therefore the atmosphere is failing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your long term employees who care and strive to make a change..their (employees) feedback is imperative.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules with 24 hour restaurants

    Cons

    Never enough competent staff and people that had been there a long time that were unable to change with new company policies.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the corporate numbers drive you into working to death. As long as you can actively maintain a healthy work/live balance it is a great place to work.

    Pros

    i waitresses for enp for 5 years on anf off through college. they were very flexible with me and other students and our changing schedules...so flexible that i couldn't leave for 5 years! great place to start waiting tables, flexible for families too. room to move up in company.

    Cons

    Sometimes not very well organized. customers aren't always best tippers. pretty strict corporate rules/regulations.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional...sometimes managers are very young and end up becoming very close with with certain employees/have favorites with special treatments and neglect other aspects of their jobs needed to keep employee morale/things running smoothly. But overall very Good to employees
