    I worked at Fox Restaurant Concepts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Dinner shifts were always lucrative
    Had the fortune of having an excellent boss
    You will learn a lot and be well groomed for future fine dining opportunities

    Cons

    The training process was extremely thorough but disorganized at times and the management knew it.

    Streamline the training

    young management
    strict policies
    poor employee discounts

    Advice to Management

    If you give respect, you will get it in return. Servers, kitchen staff, ect. need to be treated this way. Management tends to be young and can take advantage of such a role.

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

    Pros

    The atmosphere is great. Everyone is friendly and i love going to all the different concepts. It is a great place for college students to work and make some money while in school.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any. To some the concepts may be pricey but it is quality food and you get exactly what you pay for, therefore i am completely accepting of the prices.

    Pros

    There are many, many PRO's to working at FRC. Great Hospitality Every Time. Delicious food, great service, cool restaurants, outstanding quality, high standards, fun workplace, family feel, positive reinforcement, growth opportunities, ongoing training, business education, fast pace, performance recognition...

    Cons

    I really don't have any CON's. In regards to other reviews I have read, it seems most of the CON's are by people that have a hard time being held accountable. The company has high standards and expects all team members to maintain them, that is a good thing.

    Advice to Management

    Find your own way to hold people accountable with consistency and positivity. Help others show the great hospitality we are known for.

    Pros

    Great people, exciting brands, exceptional food, inspiring leaders, high standards, loyal teams, great growth potential, high value placed on intelligence

    Cons

    Fox Restaurant Concepts require a ton out of their people. There is a big time commitment but worth it if you are serious about your career.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive excellence and hold people to the highest possible standard. Great job!
