I worked at RA Sushi full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Highly focused on teamwork and relationship building, working at RA is fun, challenging, and a great way to learn a diverse set of skills that are applicable in many fields. Whether you're front of house or back of house, you'll get thorough training, clear communication, and support whenever you need it. You'll also learn a lot about Japanese culture and culinary tradition, which you can use to impress your friends for years to come.

Cons

You're almost guaranteed to get a wasabi-bomb prank at some point, but, c'est la vie. A small price to pay for working with an amazing company. Hours can be late, as in any restaurant; this industry is not for the people who want to know exactly when they're going home.

    Pros

    Managers eat for free while on duty

    Cons

    Lack of organization, lack of leadership, training can be fun but not helpful

    Advice to Management

    RA is owned by Benihana and upper management needs to focus more on RA and not so much Benihana restaurants

    I worked at RA Sushi part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of young and outgoing people work there, it is a very trendy and fun restaurant to work at, 50% discount on food, great food, good music, good scene.

    Cons

    As is in any restaurant, managers are often stressed out at busy times of the night. While they were a lot of fun when they were in good moods, stressful situations often made them unprofessional, snappy, and occasionally downright mean. My advice would be to get on their good sides from the start, and that can generally be done through a little flirtation. It may not be ethical...but hey, that's the restaurant biz.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate. And ask for feedback on managers. They are so important to the success of the restaurant, yet it takes a lot for someone to get fired.
