    Pros

    Get your experience and get a better job.

    Cons

    Pay every week just to get 50% off meals. Can not bring in own food for lunch if you dont pay the weekly cost of discount either. Make you sell diner card with no incentive. Makes guest uncomfortable and hurts your tip because they push you to sell the cards.

    Advice to Management

    Feel sorry for you.

    Pros

    One of the best jobs I ever had! Did I not mention...the FOOD!

    Cons

    You have to be a team player. Anyone seeking employment must be willing to work hard and laborious hours.

    Advice to Management

    Cater to the needs of your workers before your guests. Ensure maximum guest satisfaction, but not at the expense of your hard-working staff.
