    Not the worst job in the world

    Pros

    Flexible hours for student or those with other time commitments.Hourly money isn't bad for an entry-level job. You get to meet a lot of people. You get to work a lot on your acting skills.

    Cons

    High stress environment. You may get treated like garbage by guests, management and coworkers alike. Hours can be late. You smell like garlic every night. Mind-dumbingly boring work. If you want to make decent money you can't slow down for a second or take a meal break. Working weekends and nights is practically required if you want to make money.

    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.
