      Great For A Start, But Not For Long Term

      Pros

      The pay is great for a starting job (Hourly + service charge + tips); you grow to love most of the people you work with, a pretty flexible schedule (to a point)

      Cons

      Eventually, you will probably work most of the other positions at the job (this is due to call outs, lack of staff in general, people not knowing what they are doing, or people slacking off). Since you will probably be put into other positions your hours will change (especially if made a server) which brings me to my second con 4 am shifts on weekends. They are long rigorous and it is already bad that the customers can be a lot to deal with. After closing it will take you hours to clean before you leave ( why i referred to it as "4 am" shifts). When I worked there and had those types of shifts I did get home and in my bed till around 6-6:30 am on a Friday just to do it all over again Saturday. Honestly Only reason I stayed so long was because of the pay and the people who worked there.
