    I worked at Patina Restaurant Group full-time

    Pros

    Excellent training, good pay, great team, got to try the food and beverages, upward mobility available, and opportunities to work at other locations around the country.

    Cons

    Pooled tips with entire wait staff and they would always overstaff bussers, not allowed time off, the schedule changed every week, managers from out of town would randomly come in and change the bar without asking the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the staffs' suggestions more, if they don't want a tip pool then get rid of it, if they need time off let them take off and discuss with the team before making major changes behind the bar.
