    Pros

    They actually care, which is a new experience for me, especially for a company this large. The Big Kitchen is extremely helpful and genuine in everything they do. Everyone is extremely hands on and involved, whether at the restaurant or behind the scenes. Extremely team oriented. Amazing work life balance!

    Cons

    Haven't found any! Seriously love this company

    Pros

    This company has an outstanding training program. The pay matches your experience. FRC cares for you as a person, not just an employee. Highly recommend joining our team. Very well structured with the support you need at the restaurant level

    Cons

    Work hours can be long, however nothing out of range of other concepts, and the time you put in is recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing great.

    Pros

    The culture and traditions within this company are strong and pure. The staff have a very genuine outlook and all put forth that extra effort to see each concept work and thrive to their fullest potential.

    Cons

    Every restaurant has the little things that happen here and there. But all in all, i think with the large amount of staff and how constantly busy each concept is, things are held together very well.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the details just a little more. Make sure training is being completed the right way through a certified trainer and communication is being kept up with.

    Pros

    FRC is the best company I have ever worked for. From the encouragement that the management staff gives, to the inspirational idols of the company. I have never felt so appreciated to work for any other company, as I do for Fox. Started off with the company as a server, and they saw in me what I hadn't quite seen yet myself. And for that, I'll be forever grateful.

    Cons

    There are no cons. :)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to put in the time and dedication to your beautiful restaurant. The positivity you give off greatly impacts your service team.

    I have been working at Fox Restaurant Concepts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    TRAINING: Incredibly thorough training programs for external new hires and internal promotes including: customized training program in-store, 3-day training at the home office in Phoenix, online courses, Train The Trainer, advanced leadership trainings, etc.
    CULTURE: This organization "walks the talk," treating employees like guests (with respect and genuine care).
    PERKS: Dining discounts at all Fox Restaurant Concepts, tuition reimbursement, referral bonuses, service awards, etc.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is not really a con but a reality of the restaurant and hospitality industry. We work long hours. (However, I would rather be busy over bored any day of the week.)

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
