    I worked at Hakkasan full-time

    Pros

    A lot of free alcohol and tables at nightclubs.

    Cons

    horrible misogynistic company. Absolutely awful. No wonder company just got bought out by SBE.

    Advice to Management

    Hire talented people instead of giving away positions to people with zero talent because of who they know.

    I worked at Hakkasan part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pros would be that you get a family meal at the end of a shift, but it's cheap food and you honestly don't know what parts of the animal you are eating.

    Cons

    The servers there are so stressed out that it's trash. You can make money here, but you can make the same money anywhere else where management is better and less stress. Tip out is very unfair. They let the staff handle the money, and they stiff a lot of other workers to make sure they get the most money. It's great if you're a server sometimes, but anything "below" that, you're going to be treated like less.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your staff, management fires good workers, too strict. Why is there a drug test? Most of the staff is high and drunk.

    Decent benefits and fair pay.
