    "The working environment would have been great if management didn't work out of fear and the desperation to meet quotas."

    I worked at Grill Concepts part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was flexible. Easy to switch shifts with other staff if necessary.

    Cons

    There seemed to have been a disconnect between staff and higher management. The desire for higher sales quotas increasingly was a problem for such a customer oriented business. There was less and less regard and care for staff.

    Advice to Management

    Relax. Working at Daily Grill could be enjoyable. It once was. Desperation adds pressure to everyone on staff.

  3. "Stable job and business that is flexible with your schedule"

    I worked at Grill Concepts part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers created an amazing environment to work with. The flow worked very well with the front of the house floor plan. The money is also very lucrative if you work in the night.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care as much as it could about it's employees. The owning company is very corporate, which creates a lot of problems as they really stifle and creativity, and really make working more of a scare factor than an enjoyable environment.

    Advice to Management

    At least in my location, have a more structured training system, as the newer employees really were thrown under a bus on their first shifts. Make your employee nepotism less obvious...

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, not open on Sundays or Saturday before 5pm, lunch shifts are 3-4 hours.

    Cons

    Worst clientele- customers are rude and overly picky about everything, but can get away with anything. Management will always throw you under the bus when it comes to the customer and never show support no matter the situation.

    Advice to Management

    Show more respect and support towards your employees.
