    I worked at Kabuki Japanese Restaurants (More than a year)

    Pros

    Provided free lunch. The employee discount was friendly.

    Cons

    Too strict when it came to employee performance. Managers would rather yell and get mad for poor performance but wouldn't provide any help or feedback on how to improve. Managers would stay in the back rather than help during rushes. Managers are very disrespectful. It's not professional to yell at employees in front of staff just to embarrass them. When given an evaluation to my fellow co worker manager wrote, "wear more makeup when you come to work." Sadly that is a true story. Too much to list.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring within. Learn how to manage your managers and give them proper training. Poor leadership.

    I have been working at Kabuki Japanese Restaurants part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with great coworkers makes the job a lot easier, flexible schedule, quick cash off of tips, eating the food is a plus side I mean who doesn't love sushi

    Cons

    Management and corporate office breathes down your back at all times, the tip out system is horrible, the company itself only looks out for the company's best interest

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees more then your customer

    Pros

    Well known so that makes it consistently busy and it's a bigger restaurant so you get a bigger steadier section

    Cons

    Tip out is unreasonably big almost half of what you take home you have to tip out. The training process is very long and the menu is huge

    Advice to Management

    Fix the tip out policy

    Pros

    Fast money fast paced job, this job will really put you through the grinder. You short hours and really fun. They also feed you for free which is nice.

    Cons

    Seems racist, rarely does someone non Korean gets promoted to manager, and its worse from Busser to Server. They say there is room for improvement, in my experience, not so much. But its a part time anyways
