    I worked at Saltgrass Steakhouse part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Leave with cash in hand

    Cons

    Too much favoritism between some management and staff. Saltgrass does a ranking system with their waitstaff. Those that are "top ranked" will be assigned the "money sections" on a consistent basis. I felt they were ranked more on favoritism or seniority vs their work performance.
