    I have been working at Landry's Seafood full-time for more than 6 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...

    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.

    I have been working at Landry's Seafood full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The people you work with are the best part of this job and the only reason to stay.

    Cons

    This is a restaurant so its not stable and you work very, very long hours. Open for every holiday and sometimes you will not only not get a break but also won't get time off for multiple weeks in a row. They say there is room for growth but myself and many others disagree and feel as though we've hit a wall. They also like to say they promote almost exclusively from within but again it feels like I've hit a wall. They...

      Current Employee - Server in The Woodlands, TX

      I have been working at Landry's Seafood part-time for more than 2 years

      The pay can be nice if the managers do not overstaff a shift.

      I worked at Landry's Seafood part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      I trained the week before spring break and was on the floor serving for the first time in my life during spring break and I handled myself wonderfully. Over spring break and my training, I made over $1,000 and I had two full days off, only one double, and only had a three table section at most. Managers and coworkers were friendly, considerate, and very helpful. A unified team environment is very prominent at my old...

      Cons

      Out of all restaurants to work in, this is very much on the more difficult end. There are very high expectations of you, but if you are a hard worker and can consolidate well, it will be a breeze. My location specifically was severely understaffed for servers and other servers were scheduled doubles every single day during spring break. I was lucky enough to only have one double, but only because my availability was...

      Advice to Management

      All I would change is a more accommodating schedule, but I know that just couldn't have worked out given the circumstances of how understaffed the restaurant is. The closing work that was such a problem and kept me so late is just a part of the job, I just personally didn't have the time for it then. My only advice for managers would be to hire A LOT more servers or give better pay to attract more servers because even...

      I worked at Landry's Seafood for more than 20 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.

    • "Extra cash"

        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I worked at Landry's Seafood

        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...
