I worked at Hillstone Restaurant Group full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I worked for Hillstone for many years in three different stores (in three different states). It demands rigorous standards in line with George Biel's vision - he is the visionary. Meticulous detail is paid to each and every store - from artwork to music to food and decor. Management can be challenging, but what management isn't? Overall, the money is consistent; the quality of food and environment is amazing; and the music is phenomenal. Current and previous employees who complain just don't get it. The whole system is pure genius.

Cons

High volume can induce high stress but the flip side is you're making money.

Advice to Management

Not my place.
