    Management! Worst management I have ever experienced. They promote from within resulting in under educated people becoming managers and not understanding basic management principles. Unbelievable disrespectful.

    Pros

    Cool teammates
    Service manager is pretty cool
    Good drinks

    Cons

    THEY WILL WORK YOU LIKE A DOG! You understand me? I would literally work 9+ shifts a week. Totally impossible to get a weekend off without request. Even after you let them know your availability they will STILL schedule you. Alceu is favors brazillians. When they come in he will order frien yucca, farofa, chiles tod, and everything else Brazilian for them before they can even reach their seats. Yet guest of other cultures aren't given those same things. & people would think that at Fogo de Chao you're making great money. Think again. At this location, I would work no less than 9 shifts a week and take home less than $1000 every two weeks. That's dreadful. I'd be surprised if they survived much longer. Spare yourself & run in the opposite direction.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone the same. & understand that not everyone wants to sell their soul to Fogo.

    Pros

    Free Food at the location.
    Good breaks during weekdays, which means you get to rest.
    Whenever you need some time off, you get it. As long as you request before through their employee website they don't give you trouble.
    After a few months you get Health Insurance.

    Cons

    Demanding job, we don't have many bussers, which means you have to do all that job.
    You stand and come and go ALL day (place is huge). Which means that by the end of the day you are dead tired and exhausted.
    Money is good but not extraordinary, you make much more, working much less in some other places.
    To make more you have to put in some good hours.

    Advice to Management

    Better manage schedules.

    Pros

    Free food, long breaks when working a double.

    Cons

    One of the worst jobs I have ever had, management lacks on proper training, very rude and hostile towards employees, pooling of the tips isn't a good system, no money hardly for the amount of work you have to do, so much physical work involved with those trays that can weight up to 40 pounds, the entire system is flawed they just want customers to think of them as fine dining when in reality it's an all you can eat steak buffet restaurant.

    Advice to Management

    Go through proper training before trying to run a store, learn some proper manners, treat employees nicely perhaps?
