    I worked at Milestones Grill & Bar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good hours. Located right downtown.
    Tips are much better when working as a shift leader than a server.

    Cons

    Poorly managed FOH. Scheduling is often late, and changed around.
    Really awful theft problem in the staff hallway. When I first started working ~4 phones per week got stolen. The management refused to change the security cameras around.

    Cutting back on hours, being cut after 1 hour of work during the day and in the evening, Irregular hours, management at times can be friendly and live and other times frustrated with others and themselves, management saving labour... labour labour labour... it's all about the labour hours/money saved and stretching the staff they don't cut on any given shift.
