    I worked at Landry's Seafood (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Cash at end of each shift, can make great connections with guests, made life-long friends with other employees, semi-flexible schedule, able to work while going to school

    Cons

    No value for hourly employees, no job security, management turnover is incredibly high, insurance is terrible, employees made to always feel expendable, must pay for employee rewards

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to provide a more rewarding work environment, try to increase the value felt by hourly employees by creating a better company culture.

    I have been working at Landry's Seafood full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful view and localtion on the water, high volume restaurant, wonderful team work and family oriented staff. Sales contests that create a fun, competitive and rewarding environment based off performance. Compassionate and friendly management that make you want to do a good job for them. Flexible hours and scheduling that allow myself and other employees to pursue other ambitions such as school and activities outside of work.

    Cons

    Slow season between January and February is financially challenging to endure. Working twelve hour shifts with virtually no breaks days in a row and can a toll on not only your body but mind as well.

    Advice to Management

    Be understanding that a server that is fed, allowed to take at least a few minutes for a break will have an overall better attitude which will transcend into better service and a happier guest.


  5. "Extra cash"

    StarStarStarStarStar

    Pros

    - if you need extra cash but not an actual job.
    - some nice regulars.
    - fewer hours that are doable.

    Cons

    - management that actually controls scheduling and deals with employees are usually on a major power trip.

    - management treats servers horribly who will go treat the poor hostesses, bussers, even bar tenders poorly.

    - business types come in and treat everyone like scum.

    - they will make you do a job your not licensed for and yell at you if you mess it up when they're busy.

    - customers have literally told me they see dread coming from the employees when management comes in.

    - high turn over rate.

    - lots of emotional and physical stress in the work environment.

    - the popular people get most of the hours even if they do a poor job and poor customer service.

    - scheduling mix up is something that happens alot at this location.

    - the one on floor assistant manager that had great people skills quit because of the environment.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly investigate your management... not that anything will be done about it.

    I worked at Landry's Seafood full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Built a great team where everyone got along and got the job done. Great food and view. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Long, long hours. Zero work/life balance. upper management had no concern for this aspect. Job security was a little shaky and ruled mostly by fear.

    Advice to Management

    Time to let go of 80's pull rank do what I say or else mentality. Less shooting from the hip.

    I worked at Landry's Seafood part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A very lively high quality menu. Management was well trained. Atmosphere was vibrant both inside and out. I recommend this restaurant.

    Cons

    The location of my restaurant was not near water so I believe the concept suffered. Staff was transient in the front of the house.... mostly students. Kitchen staff was well trained but many had limited English.

    Advice to Management

    Location, location, location!
