    I worked at Howl at the Moon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed playing here. The team was amazing, and the atmosphere was always so alive. I will never forget my experience here as an employee.

    Cons

    There really is not much to say. I am sad that the way way upper management couldn't make the marketing in NYC work. It could have been a stand out joint.

    Advice to Management

    I would have suggested giving free drink tickets in Time Square. Figure out a way to get people in the doors in a New York city fashion. They NYC type tourism market is different than other city, like Orlando.

    I worked at Howl at the Moon full-time

    Pros

    Good to Great Money; If you've been in the industry long you will LOVE the fact that you don't have to deal with any FOOD and therefore wont have to deal with or smell like it.

    At the end of the day you work at a bar that has live music EVERY NIGHT. For the most part, pretty fun place to work with.

    Only open Wed-Sat so no work on Sundays!!

    Cons

    Upper Management is taught from CORPORATE to care more about numbers than people and therefore managers act accordingly.

    You will be a zombie/vampire. You would be working at a BAR (as opposed to restaurant) and you will working BAR hours (My shift was from 4 PM till about 3 AM....to do it all over again the next day.)

    Only open Wed-Sat, depending on your expenses, this may/may not be goof.

    Advice to Management

    Remember who is in the "dirt" bringing the customers and MONEY to your bars.
