    I worked at Landry's full-time

    Pros

    No afraid to pay for value.

    Cons

    Overall, there isn't very good morale. Very in your face. A lot of lip service from senior level directors and VP's. Almost like a rolodex of "Ideals". Makes it sound like BS.

    I have been working at Landry's part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most of their restaurants offer good pay and decent hours, most coworkers are always willing to help and be a "part of the team"

    Cons

    Policies always work in administration's favor (even in times of horrid mismanagement), you will be thrown under the bus and expected to bow down to people less qualified and less knowledgeable than yourself

    I worked at Landry's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers/managers are kind & hardworking people, the discount program is okay for if/when you want to dine at another Landry’s property.

    Cons

    Paying money to eat family meal? I’ve never experienced that in other restaurant jobs, it’s tacky. Also, the upper management will see a hardworking employee and take advantage of their work ethic until they’ve drained them of all energy and joy. There is little to no appreciation for hourly employees and the hourly pay is less than competitive in comparison to other upscale restaurants in the area. Also - hourly employees are required to be free on all major holidays but there is NO holiday pay, bonuses, etc. for working through the holiday season (which is grueling).

    Pros

    nice coworkers, potential to get tips

    Cons

    they tell you a certain pay rate but it's not true, they tell you it's full time but only schedule less than 24 hours, they put you on call but you have to call them to ask if they need you
