    I worked at Rainforest Cafe full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Literally nothing, except that the puffer fish was like a puppy and would just stare at you.

    Cons

    Everything!
    *Worked doubles without any breaks because "you clocked out so its technically two 6 hours shifts" even though it was literally a second apart from each other.
    *Worked insane hours while going to high school.
    *Was threatened multiple time when quotas weren't met in sales or those safari cards.
    *Rampant stealing of personal property
    *Management would change the schedule last minute and not tell you. You also had to come in to read your schedule because they refused to tell you.
    *My manager would sexually assault customers or give me explicit details into what they would do to those young teenagers.
    *One of my co-workers offered to pay for me (a 16 yr old) to have a threesome with his wife. Management did nothing because they were long time friends.
    *"Forgot" to pay me a few times
    *Food was terrible, pay is terrible, and customers are paying for nothing but a gimmick

    Advice to Management

    I really dont know. Everyone needs to be fired and replaced. A complete overall needs to be in place.
