"Though you can earn higher than average tip wages, it is a miserable and taxing place to work."

Pros

Higher than average guest count = Higher than average (generally) tips. If you are able to stand it, the "hourly" wage is higher than other jobs, and the schedule can be flexible.

Cons

The (current) management staff is disrespectful and incompetent at best. The high turn-over in both the management staff and entire employment staff, speak for themselves. Those who are properly "Pappa-tized" may make it, provided they properly pass blame to others, are entirely self-serving, and are willing to settle for mediocrity.

Advice to Management

Because it is required for the service staff to treat every guest like a guest in their home, management staff might consider setting the "tone at the top" by treating employees with the same amount of respect.

    Pros

    They give you a permanent schedule so if you are a student you don't have to worry about changes.

    Cons

    If you need one of those days off you have to find another employee to cover that shift, and have a manager sign it, this can cause problems, because a lot of employees don't want to cover your shift unless you pay them.


  2. "Boring, many meaningless tasks like cleaning gum outside the restaurant off benches."

    Pros

    Tips are generally pretty good, usually it's not difficult to get time off when there's a family or social event that you need to attend (simply sign in the book)

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are generally not very good. Management was poor often bringing in too many employees on slow days and not letting any go home (which just makes everybody unhappy, we work for tips!)

    Advice to Management

    When there are too many employees working the store and business is slower than expected and peak hours have passed, send some home!
