    I worked at McCormick & Schmick's

    Pros

    Can be good money, if you work your butt off.

    Cons

    Kitchen was dirty. Too fast paced to re-wash things. Would have to hand-wash coffee mugs in between customers, which I'm sure is a health code violation.

  7. "TERRIBLY MANAGED"

    I worked at McCormick & Schmick's part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Beautiful environment, easy once learn the menu, good money 100-200 a shift on average, great coworkers

    Cons

    The management is terrible, they pick favorites, decide when to enforce rules and will terminate those they don't like. Example, someone was fired for drinking water on the floor while there were countless examples of employees showing up to work intoxicated. They decide who is more valuable to them and keep who they want. Scheduling is all or none. Holidays terrible. They punish you by forcing you to come to meetings early Sunday morning if you don't sell enough of their 25$ special membership programs per month. Cheesy...

    I worked at McCormick & Schmick's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The clientele that comes to dine usually has a lot of money to spend - making it easy to upsell food and drinks. Usually at dinner, a couple won't be able to pay any less than $70. You can really raise the price if you sell an appetizer, entrees, drinks, and dessert. You have potential to make good money.

    Cons

    Customers are okay. Usually stuck up because they're rich enough to eat at the place, which doesn't bother me. My serious problem is with the management. It doesn't matter what your sales are like, as long as you can sell Landry's Select Club cards. You might as well sell your soul. If you didn't sell four a month, you would get written up. Absurd. An employee who sells LSCs often was caught drunk on the job, but management turned a blind eye because of his LSC sales. If it would've been anyone else, they would've been fired on the spot. They have a strict "no outside food or drink policy", but they make you PAY monthly for an employee discount??? I had a manager throw out a cup of coffee I brought in for myself because of the policy, but I've seen her bring in leftovers plenty of times. I wouldn't recommend that anyone work here. Everyone I know who is still there is trying desperately to get out.
