Advice to Management

Take an HR seminar.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Tips + wage = great pay for the position
    Great atmosphere
    Great people
    Constant moral efforts by upper management

    Cons

    Physically demanding: shifts can be as long as 14 hours in which you must constantly keep a brisk pace while carrying 5-20 lbs.
    Occasional upper management neglect: insufficient lunch breaks, false promises, unfairly distributed responsibilities and hours

    Advice to Management

    Spread the work out a little more fairly - servers get the most tips and hence take home the most amount of money but do the least amount of work.
    Do not, under any circumstances, under-staff shifts (ie: do not allow 1 service assistant to take care of the entire restaurant during the Saturday lunch rush).
    Do not promise something unless you will honor it - you will lose the confidence of your staff very quickly.
