    I have been working at Rockit Bar & Grill part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great staff, great food, great drinks and overall environment. If you show that you are a hard worker there is room for advancement within the venue/company.

    Cons

    We now have a new payroll and tipout structure that noone is a fan of. We do not walk home with much cash anymore, as we used to. All credit card tips go on our checks now and there have been issues with our paychecks since the implementation of this new system. Also, sometimes it seems like management is not present, as they used to be before certain managers left.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they make suggestions. Months of making the same suggestions to managers, both in writing and spoken, get ignored and we are left with the same issues and imperfections that you tried to fix. Identify flaws/problems, focus on those problems, and come up with solutions/systems to fix them.

    Promotions, training, work benefits, as well as "social" benefits.

    Pros

    There was opportunity to make as much money as you wanted. The ownership team is second to none. High profile.

    Cons

    Some members of the managment team were complete morons. Very late nights. Sometimes the customers were a little too touristy.

    Advice to Management

    The managment team should work on consistency. Some of the assistant managers had very little integrity and that is no good for employee morale.
