    Pros

    Free biscuits 5 hour shifts and doubles 11-4 or 4-9 50% off food discount 30$ average tip out, I’ve gotten up to 70$ on a holiday doing a double and as low as 12$ on a slow day with the hourly being 7.50 It’s very fast paste so if you like busy jobs where you’re not bored and there’s something different every day then the restaurant industry is for you. It’s one of the lower on the pyramid for restaurant jobs but it’s also entry level

    Cons

    On Fridays and Saturdays you can leave as late at 10pm Must work holidays, unless it’s your weekly day off Weekends make the most money, so if you work them you’ll miss out on fun with friends or family No early morning shifts

    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.
