    I have been working at Jayhawk Cafe part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Hawk is a well paying job if you are willing to put in the work. If you don't like to get your hands dirty then don't apply. It is very fun and as long as you put in the effort they treat their employees very well.

    Cons

    Like I said, if you don't want to get your hands dirty then this isn't the place for you.

    I have been working at Jayhawk Cafe part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun, Great people, & Good Management. An easy going working environment that is perfect for college students etc.. The bar is always busy as well.

    Cons

    As with any bar, the intoxicated patrons can cause issues. Working for tips is difficult at times, if you need a lot of security, the job probably isn't for you.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, fun place to work. There are a lot of employees so you are able to get time off when you need it. The management is well trained and know what to do in any situation

    Cons

    Hours are all at night, except for management who sometimes have to work during the day as well. Dealing with intoxicated customers is always a hassle.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you are doing, it seems to be working!
