    Pros

    Management is good. Great way to earn money part time.

    Cons

    Late nights. Lots of drama within coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    Please start rotating sections. The same servers are in the same sections almost every shift

    I have been working at Fox & Hound Restaurant full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great food. Competitive salary. Promote heavily from within. Free meals. Used to be a great company with a fun atmosphere and still is if you have the right district manager in place.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. Schedules that have you working until 4 am and back again for another 11-12 hour shift 7 hours later. Zero sick time and very little vacation. Bonus structure so unrealistic that less than 25% of the company ever reach it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your managers as the backbone of the company because they are! Don't require such unrealistic numbers that your managers are forced to cut all of their staff and cook, bartend, serve and host that they have no time to manage and grow business.

    I worked at Fox & Hound Restaurant full-time

    Pros

    good money, fun, good food

    Cons

    They would schedule me to close the restaurant (meaning I get out 4AM) and schedule me to work at 11AM the next morning for Sunday football. They would do this EVERY week.

    I worked at Fox & Hound Restaurant full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of beer on draft, and there’s room to grow in the company too. Training may seem long but it’s very thorough.

    Cons

    Managers spend more time either 1. Hanging out in the office or 2. Flirting with the girls. It’s impossible to get them to help with anything. The company itself has also filed for bankruptcy several times. It isn’t worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop messing with the employees and hold people accountable. It creates a miserable work environment

    I worked at Fox & Hound Restaurant full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were amazing. I made some really great friends here, and before the company got bought out I made really good money.

    Cons

    The district manager basically runs the store from an office nowhere near the restaurant. Everything is micromanaged, and we were constantly out of something, and that always cost us a lot of business. They like to overstaff because of business they *want* but don't actually *have*

    Advice to Management

    Stick up for your staff more and make sure your beer and liquor (especially the items you advertise to have) are actually available to guests
