      Pros

      Good money for students if you're working part time.

      Cons

      Says they'll work with your schedule but will make you feel bad if you ask them to work with your schedule.

      I worked at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      *Discounts (25% when not working that day and 50% if dining the day you're working) *The experience and clientale connection *Builds patience *you get the learn2serve certificate

      Cons

      *Pay isnt the best *It takes a long time to move up in the company (around 7 months but it can happen) and they require more from you in order to move up versus people who get hired for the same position just coming in. *They dont give breaks (and when they do it's never for what time they say you are owed) *No outside food allowed during breaks and some days the food isnt provided so breaks aren't given period....

      Advice to Management

      A job that seems simple at other places is clearly much more here. Making that known upfront would be better . And since host are learning just as much as servers maybe allowing us to move up to better positions faster would be a plus.

      Pros

      Can make good money depending on the location. Some are busier then others. The food is delicious and prices are midrange which means higher tips. The company is very health conscious and prides itself on keeping things clean!!! They have front of house meeting twice a year to thank us for our hard work with some food, games and prizes. Awards are given out with gift cards to the MVP’s of each area of the front of house....

      Cons

      Hate the old school uniform for the servers, too many layers and hot. Very difficult to get food for yourself that’s not on the kids menu when working. A lot of people work doubles or other jobs and don’t get the time or have the time to go somewhere else to eat. They will allow managers to bring outside food in but they will not allow the rest of the staff to. So very few options on a daily basis. It’s either under...

      Advice to Management

      Treat staff equally. There are a lot of young managers and they need to learn how to be respectful to everyone of all ages. Just bc you are a manager doesn’t give you the right to scream at people. It’s not only what you say but also how you say it!!!

      Excellent company to work for, with competitive benefits and salary as well as exceptional training for your position.
