Employee Review

    Good coworkers and bad management

    Pros

    Schedule is slightly flexible. Pay is decent compared to other similar restaurants. The people I worked with were very easy going and didn't crack under pressure. Decent benefits are offered.

    Cons

    Even though they have 25-30 employees for BOH you still work an irregular swing shift that is unpredictable and created each week. You get typically less than 30 hours but still work 6 days of the week. The whole schedule system is terrible.

    Pros

    Structured systems in place, good benefit options, valuable industry training

    Cons

    The expectations of working with the smallest labor margin possible while still creating a quality guest experience are highly unrealistic. There are no bussers, sometimes no hosts & tight staffing ALWAYS. They want you to make cuts and work with a bare bones crew, leaving you to work too many hourly positions, while still trying to manage the crew and guest experience to perfection levels. It was the thing I hated most about managing this chain. They want top quality team members for the cheapest price possible and I had to hand out raises of anywhere from 10 cents to 25 cents a YEAR for the good team members and often nothing for the mediocre ones.
