I worked at Granite City part-time (More than a year)

Pros

The food is awesome and very fresh. Kitchen is super clean. It's a restaurant that you can take pride in your work. It's always nice to bring friends and family in as they are always impressed with the staff, food, management, and overall atmosphere.

Cons

Flexibility is usually pretty good, but sometimes schedule changes are with no notice. Sometimes I don't want just the in-house brewed beers. With there was more fun weekend brunch items, specials, or promotions!

Advice to Management

It was always nice to see corporate staff in the restaurant. They should visit more often. Never take away the Chicken Caesar Chalupa!

    I worked at Granite City part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    the people are cool--*relatively* drama-free and fun to hang out with. training is intense and they expect a lot of their servers, which does prepare you to be an awesome server. you get a nice break during the day, if you're working a double, so you're not completely exhausted at the end of the day.

    Cons

    you don't make money unless you're a closer. they over-staff and rushes are extremely short. so lots of people get cut after a relatively short period of time. kinda a "take it or leave" atmosphere and that's a hard pill to swallow when you're hardly making anything. for the average server (not closer), you make about $20-$40 at lunch and $20-$60 at dinner, on average days. they have a very high turnover rate because a lot of people leave. there's a ridiculous amount of sidework to do. they don't seem to have many opportunities for promotion, so there isn't tons of incentive to do better. overall, the feeling you get when you walk in the door is "how little am i going to make today?"
