Disapproves of CEO

Pros

easy, not bad pay, once you learn the basics you can shut your brain off when you go to work (don't know if thats a "pro" or "con"), free dinner

Cons

training was minimal before they send you off to work, front desk does not get tipped out, be prepared to work full 8 hour shifts (often I would go into overtime), there is a hierarchy and hostesses are at the bottom, servers treat the hostesses pretty bad

Advice to Management

Don't make your front desk staff feel like they are at the bottom of the totem pole. They are just as important as anyone else.

    Current Employee - Front Desk in Hallandale Beach, FL
    Current Employee - Front Desk in Hallandale Beach, FL
    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work at Yard House is that the employees are really cool people and it's a reputable establishment.

    Cons

    The downsides of working at Yard House is that the managers don't really have compassion for your personal problems. They do not care about staffing properly at the Front Desk and do not treat it as priority which leads to the hostesses being worked like dogs for no tips and a very low (in comparison to others) hourly wage. They do not acknowledge hard work with appropriate raises and they think about what they consider, more important things. Morale is extremely low at the Yard House front desk.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees. If you think we are complaining too much, there's a reason for it so do something about it or everybody is eventually going to leave.
