    I have been working at Norms Restaurants part-time

    Pros

    Nice customers, fantastic coworkers (in the morning, PM people are mean) ok food, free lunch,

    Cons

    Insanely busy at all times. Required to take on more tables than is possible to do a good job with.

    Advice to Management

    Give servers less sidework and less tables if you get tired of hearing complaints. Fire employees that steal.

    I worked at Norms Restaurants part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's open 24/7 so you can basically work anytime. Holidays are time and a half. You get a meal every time you work!

    Cons

    Not the best at fitting into your schedule. If you have a very busy schedule, but still want a little bit of side money, this isn't the place. Plus it's open 24/7 so they'll try to get you to do a lot of graveyard shifts even if you say no.

    Advice to Management

    Care for your employees

    Pros

    Great Experience! Met some really great people! 20% discount for employees and free food every time you worked.

    Cons

    Won't work with your schedule. Left alone on shifts sometimes and it would get super busy. Expected to constantly be multitasking with cashing, hosting, filing, and to-go orders. WIsh we would always have 2 hosts.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at Norms restaurants during the past 6 years. The pay was good and the customers were pleasant.

    Cons

    The only downside I would say is the hours. I worked the graveyard shift which was from 9 at night until 5 in the morning.

    Advice to Management

    Give your workers all the resources they need to give great service.
