    I worked at Egg Harbor Cafe full-time

    Pros

    Fairly straight-forward, logical policies. Decent pay if location is busy.

    Cons

    Decision to not sell alcohol at the urban Buckhead location, where nearby restaurants all serve alcohol, severely hurt check totals.

    Advice to Management

    Management should refrain from acting on personal views about employee personalities.

    Pros

    -Such a family-oriented environment
    -Owner knew my name within my first few weeks of me working there
    -Amazing "regulars" that make the job so much more enjoyable

    Cons

    -Very tip-dependent how much you make

    Advice to Management

    -Keep treating the staff like family, it makes the job feel like so much more than just a job

    I have been working at Egg Harbor Cafe full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They value the right people, hard work and self improvement. The guests are great, the owners are amazing! Working with a company that cares about all of its people is so rare now a days, but that's what Egg Harbor does. It's all very family oriented. Everyone is always happy!

    Cons

    You might smell like bacon at the end of the day ( not the worst thing ever). You work weekends but you can get so much more done during the week anyways!

    I have been working at Egg Harbor Cafe full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This business feels different than others. Coming from a office setting that was supposedly family-oriented, I feel they truly embrace the meaning of that here making everyone feel welcome. My co-workers are some of my best friends and I am as close to them as some of my family.

    Between new stores and ventures opening, current locations expanding, and sales growing, new opportunities are constantly presenting themselves to hard-working, dedicated, team-players. A year ago I would never have thought I would be doing what I'm doing now.

    Never have to be concerned with working nights. The restaurant stops seating guests at 2, and rarely are you there past 3. This gives you reasonable hours to spend with your family and friends.

    Cons

    Not working late nights comes with the consequence of having to work early mornings. Definitely not for those who can't operate well in the morning.

    Weekends are a must to start out and for those that are working in the restaurants.

    Advice to Management

    Get more people involved in leadership education. Just because someone isn't ready now, doesn't mean they won't ever be. Be a bit more proactive in their education.

    Pros

    pays well, hours are great, regular costumers are a big plus, discounted food, has some great managers, helps pay for uniform.

    Cons

    drama between management and staff, lot of sexual harassment, most issues involving someone higher up are just ignored, any issue with someone who is entry level usually ends in an abrupt firing, promote people who have no other opportunities elsewhere and can dedicate a ton of extra hours for no pay as opposed to promoting the people who would actually be good at the position.

    Advice to Management

    At least pretend to care about the sexual harassment and stop trying to hide any issue that happens with managers. Promote someone every once in a while who isn't just sucking up to you all day long or that you aren't sleeping with.
