    I have been working at Loco's Grill & Pub full-time

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere most of the time. Food is pretty good. Busy times can be very profitable. They make it a point to keep out people that cause or stir up drama amongst coworkers. Management is usually pretty great about making sure your scheduling needs are met.

    Cons

    Not the best environment to work in, meaning the building is pretty run down due to desperate need of remodeling. The floors are always slippery due to grease or some kind of liquid always on the floor because of plumbing issues. Management can be a bit lazy and sub par at times. I've worked there for almost 2 years and never in my time there have we not been understaffed for one reason or another. Needless to say this puts more stress on the people they do have and makes the work environment less desirable. Getting help can be like pulling teeth. Upper management treats this place like the shunned little brother to the other locations, only bringing in hand-me-down equipment and never wanting to pay to fix anything that may need repair. The other locations don't have these types of problems

    Advice to Management

    Care more about all of your locations and not just the most profitable ones. Advertise more to bring in more business. More business means more money to be made for employees and makes jobs there seem more desirable and would therefore make hiring a little easier.

    I worked at Loco's Grill & Pub part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Made lifelong friends and you will have awesome coworkers. Make a lot of money sometimes as well. These are the ONLY pros.

    Cons

    Extremely disrespectful management and ownership. Sexism is prevalent. Females are treated horribly and are cussed out when mistakes are made. Only females allowed in front of house unless you are a bartender, which is illegal. Very verbally abusive.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like dirt. Give them praise when they do well instead of just yelling at them and using profanity. Basically just replace all the managers. Make your cooks wear gloves. Try and find intelligent and respectful managers.

    I worked at Loco's Grill & Pub full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -50% off food when working one shift, free food if on double shift
    -Some great coworkers

    Cons

    -Many responsibilities for little pay.
    -One of the owners treat you like you're beneath them.
    -Hardly given a chance if something goes wrong.
    -Favortism
    -Go home smelling like food and smoke due to the smoking side of the place.
    -You get blamed for order mistakes, but the majority of the kitchen staff are people who can't read, or speak English fluently.
    -Broken line of communication.
    -You're expected to know the menu inside and out, but get left out to dry when you comes to drinks, especially cocktails. It's a guessing game when a customer asks for a particular drink, you have to say, "Sure." and then come up with an excuse if that particular drink isn't sold.
    -Hardly make any money on slow days, which are 4-5 days of the week.

    Advice to Management

    Help out as much as you can. ALWAYS update your employees on what's in stock and what's not. Make sure the line of communication between everyone is intact.

  5. "Line cook and head chef"

    I worked at Loco's Grill & Pub part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Was able to increase skills in communication, leadership, and organization. Boosted my ability to multi-task as well as leadership qualities.

    Cons

    Had to take on responsibilities of other co-workers when in high stress situations. Was paid the same as the line cooks, even though my job title entailed much more responsibility and leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Do not pay the line cooks (fryers, prep) the same as the head grill cook. Even out responsibilities with closing and opening evenly to get both done more efficiently.

    Pros

    Very relaxed and friendly. everyone is always willing to help in whatever way they can.

    Cons

    minimum wage for an experienced cook seems unrealistic

    Advice to Management

    experienced cooks should start at $8.00/hr like the other similar restaurants in the area.

    Pros

    Fun people to work with, when it's busy you make good money, get food half off

    Cons

    Long hours, never know how long you'll stay, lazy people, not much room to move up at all, when it's slow you don't make much money

    Advice to Management

    Look into giving small raises here and there especially for those that have been there for years. Show current employees more appreciation
