    I have been working at Fox Restaurant Concepts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My personal experience has been nothing but wonderful. I am learning so much that will help me in the future. Great upper management team that is consistently pushing you to be better. Much love and respect for this company.

    Cons

    I have nothing but great things to say. You can work a lot of hours at some points but it’s is worth it because you are consistently learning and growing.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. You have access to high achievers in this industry. Unlimited growth potential. Multiple restaurant or brand avenues to explore.

    Cons

    They do promote from within. You may be teamed up with a manager the is VERY young in their process.

    Advice to Management

    Push incentives for continuing education. Continue to evolve the review process.

    I worked at Fox Restaurant Concepts part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is as good as you're willing to work for.
    Positive guest experiences lead to a well-known company.
    Fox will let you transfer to different concepts if you move.

    Cons

    Rapid company growth has led to some pretty awful management hires.
    Company is more focused on how they look on paper than actually taking care of the comfort and safety needs of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more attuned to how "leaders" on the floor command respect (or lack of respect) from FOH and BOH employees. Taking a little extra time to find the right fit for management positions will lead to much higher happiness and success for the entire team.

    Pros

    Coworkers are amazing, quality of product, PTO, great employees and consistent guests

    Cons

    Upper management is unrealistic with budget goals and overly aggressive. The concept seems to have changed from hospitality first to profit and loss statement first and guests second

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the guest and not labor first, go back to a balance.
