    I have been working at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    very flexible schedule...can work as little or as much as you'd like (up to 40 hours a week)

    Cons

    possibility of putting in so much work for no little to no gratuity...also, no cap on tip pool, and no automatic gratuity applied to guest check...

    Advice to Management

    ...look out more for the servers, as far as getting stiffed!
