    I have been working at Schwartz Brothers Restaurants part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty much everyone who works here is great and super helpful. The managers care about their staff and take their scheduling needs into consideration (which was perfect for me since I started this job while still in school.)

    Cons

    One manager seemed to play favorites with the hostesses. When someone who has been working there for 8 months is only being scheduled for 2 days a week (with 7 days of availability) and a new hire is working for 5 days a week, then there is a problem. But that problem, I am told, is going to be solved soon.

    Make sure you can stand on your feet for extensive periods of time. There is not much time to take a rest and sit down.

    Advice to Management

    Other than the scheduling thing, they all do a great job.

    I have been working at Schwartz Brothers Restaurants full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    money, if you do not care about your job, your guests or making the place better for all, you can make good money, but that is it, very seasonal

    Cons

    Bad management from the very top down, sporadic policies, nonexistent training program, just a milking cow for the ownership, get more spend less, always understaffed with an expectation of good performance, not a fine steakhouse anymore, sad

    Advice to Management

    get some standards not just on paper but in every aspect of the operation

    Pros

    Large, family run company with much care for their employees. Great pay and incentives with room to grow in the company.

    Cons

    Extremely high standards across all restaurants. There's no cutting corners in this work environment. Poor communication at times.
