    I have been working at Landry's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At this particular location it is easy to pick up extra hours and receive overtime.

    Cons

    Line is understaffed during dinner rushes and busy days.

    Advice to Management

    There need to be consequences for bad attitudes and mistakes, not just a wagging of the finger at them. People here tend to do what they want, not what they need to.

    Pros

    Energetic waitstaff and predictable, stable work environment.

    Cons

    It was a small, but growing restaurant group that was embracing large restaurant corporation BS. The restaurants were losing a lot of their charm and individuality.

    I have been working at Landry's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    High check averages CAN lead to good tips, however because they do not add gratuity, servers don't like taking large parties.

    Cons

    Harassing/threatening servers to sell LSC cards. No gratuity on large parties. Poor management leading to below average employee performance. Corporate seems to only be interested in sales, not an enjoyable environment to work in. They make you buy into (nearly $20 a month) the employee discount program.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on service and cleanliness, not your club card program.
