      I worked at RA Sushi part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Amazing employees. The servers, sushi, kitchen, busser and host staff is amazing. No cliques, the team is like a family. You get 50% off amazing food that is usually expensive.

      Cons

      There are too many cons. Avoid working here at all cost. The management is honestly mentally abusive. They are cruel to their employees. Absolutely cruel. And not a single employee disagrees, which says something. Ive seem multiple of their staff cry on multiple occasions. They deny requests off for important things such as your child's birthday, schoolwork, family, etc. They don't care about you, only themselves. I've...

      Advice to Management

      Respect your employees. Avoid insulting, avoid being blatantly rude and unfair for absolutely no reason. Learn to be flexible and aim to TEACH in ways that are healthy rather than abusive. Take other people's feelings into consideration and be aware that your actions and words affect others. And if you preach about how "we're all basically family" in your interviews, then SEE IT THROUGH. The fear factor is not what should...

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at RA Sushi part-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      Being able to share your time with likeminded individuals was great. Early on you were lucky enough to make your own schedule and managers would respect that.

      Cons

      Poor management, they were lost more than the team. At one point the management team was solid, and carried the team. Then the turnover happened and everything went down hill.

      I worked at RA Sushi for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Really great money for serving. Flexible schedule for the most part.

      Cons

      Super high turnover rate for management. If you have a mindset of just making money and getting out for a short phase of your life you'll like it (thats why I did). It's just not somewhere where the company cares about your well-being. Has absolutely no company culture.

      Make sure everyone is helping each other out.
