      Former Employee - Manager in Phoenix, AZ

      I worked at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      Reviews with potential raises every 6 months, small, but it's something. Decent training. Highest quality food and a restaurant to be proud to work for. Decent 401-k with company match.

      Cons

      I had no room to advance. No appreciation around the holiday seasons from the owners or upper mgmt. Very unattainable bonus structure. Benefits are expensive. Never had weekends off unless I asked for it, long hours made work-life balance difficult.
