    Pros

    Money can be good if you work the right shifts and hours. People are fun and it’s always a good time after work

    I worked at JOEY Restaurants full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people you serve with were the best part because of the friendships you make

    Cons

    Management does not care about any employee unless the employee does something for them first. They only do favor for favor. Treat employees like they are all replaceable so they don't matter. You are treated even worse if you are sick or need a day off. The hours are long with no breaks and always short handed especially in the summer. For the long hours you don't make as money as you should be because of the extremely high tipout. Joeys would rather take the money from servers to pay the minimun wage increase then them have to pay for it. Management runs off emotions for all decisions especially the AGM who does not wanna help fix any of the problems but just blame it on staff members.

    Pros

    Fast-paced, often fun environment. Develop great relationships with coworkers.

    Cons

    As a salaried worker, I often found myself working way too much. I completed many tasks on time, or ahead of time, and was denied raises. I was barely making enough to get by.

    Pros

    Coworkers. That’s about it.

    Cons

    Zero support on or off the floor, management is young, unprofessional, reacts off emotion which is belittling and immature (high school really) interrogates partners into telling them things with the threat of losing their job, gossips and spreads personal and private information about partners, will deliberately ignore or avoid you, focus is mainly on labor budget so they leave 1 or 2 servers ALONE on a Friday night with a full restaurant to go up in the office and do “paperwork” “invoices” or “work on the schedule” and then come down after closing to ask why they’re still on the clock and how much longer until they’re off and out of there. It’s ran so horrible, all the servers are beat down, tired, and burnt out.

    I worked at JOEY Restaurants part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Upscale environment to be proud of Team minded Ample opportunities for moving up in the company

    Cons

    It's an upscale restaurant and you have to look the part- full makeup and hair done Teamwork also means team accountability- because there are so many checks in place and so many people working, if a customer leaves unhappy it truly is the team that let that customer down
