      I have been working at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Good pay most of the time

      Cons

      Management is overbearing. Tons of little policies that you have to follow. No chance to request time off. Advancement depends on if the right manager likes you and thats about it.

        I worked at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen

        Pros

        As a server, you have the potential to make good money if you put in the work.

        Cons

        Sometimes, the work you put in may not be enough.

        Advice to Management

        The management was easy work to and loved workers with the servers. They were fine, but it would’ve been better if there were more of them.

        I worked at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Huge potential, some people walk out on game days with $300 or more. The servers and managers are quite nice. Servers of all ages. Avg person spends $40 there.

        Cons

        game days are draft days and you have to work. They are open on new years. Getting a weekend off is untenable. People pay $50 dollars or more for someone to take their Saturday or Friday night shift. training is about 3 weeks on minimum wage. 3.5% tip pool. you pay for dry cleaning($2 a shift stipend doesn't cover that). You are your own dishboy and cashier too.

        Advice to Management

        Hire dishboys. Servers in crisp, white shirts shouldn't be shoveling ketchup into trashcans. That or change to black aprons and black shirts
