Pros

Respectful company and work environment with helpful and effective managers. Clear duties and instructions. They are also always looking for people to complete management training if you are interested in restaurant management.

Cons

The only complaints that I have is inconsistent scheduling, which is typical in a restaurant environment, and the low pay.

Advice to Management

The managers are very good and if they aren't then they don't last very long. They are very fair and judicial when dealing with employees and guests.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Even though the tips are not that great, I always make enough to at least be worth coming in (which I can't say for all of my serving jobs). Managers are easy to talk to, and flexible. Co-workers are nice for the most part. No alcohol (good, if you're tired of drunk people).

    Cons

    You could make more money working at a bar, if you're willing to put up with the drunk people and late hours. There's a lot of side-work, which is frustrating when you make 2.13 an hour, but it could be worse.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on safety (employees can be really careless about laying things down on the floor, and its easy to trip over when you're moving fast with a full tray).
