    I worked at Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company full-time

    Pros

    Busy restaurant so make good tips, fun environment, beer slam, $2 beers, 1/3 off food.

    Cons

    Power trip managers/supervisors, can be some what clicky, 1/2 off food would be a better deal for workers-especially if you work a double.

    I worked at Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company part-time

    Pros

    Friendly family like staff, management cares a lot about the place and all of the customers. Fair pay compared to other restaurants.

    Cons

    The training is a bit rushed without the best advice. Lot of pressure to be perfect and never mess up.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to ask for feedback from current employees and get an understanding of how they view upper management.

    I have been working at Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Garden season is a fantastic time to make new friends and make a lot of money. It's a fun time to work.

    Cons

    A lot of competitive employees . Since there are over 100 employees competing for shifts, it can be difficult to get the proper money making shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Treat veterans with more respect.
