    I have been working at Mina Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I couldn't speak more highly of the company. They are my family and treat me as such. They do a phenomenal job of setting you up on a platform to be successful but you need to put in the work to be so as in any job. The opportunities have been amazing and I couldn't be more thankful.

    Cons

    I can not think of any cons about this company.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Mina Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Mina group treats their skilled employees well and sees that they are tipped appropriately. There are plenty of opportunities to learn from management and try out different positions. A big restaurant group like this also has resources for things like healthcare and schedule flexibility and does a pretty good job with those resources.

    Cons

    It's definitely a cliquey culture. If you're not fully gung-ho about Mina Group, you will feel left out.
