More Pros and Cons

  1. "Server"

    I worked at Scotty's Brewhouse part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was great getting to experience the restaurant industry. I learned a lot about the food business, but also about dealing with other people. It was a little out of my comfort zone, and I think that is what made me grow!

    Cons

    It was a new Scotty's, so there were some struggles with the kitchen and getting into a staff groove.

    Advice to Management

    It was great management! I do wish things were a bit more organized though.

    I worked at Scotty's Brewhouse part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good money if you were able to work hard.
    Started with one of the best work cultures I've had, but this disappeared as they continued to hire trashy, untrustworthy, and drug dependent employees.

    Cons

    Management got taken over by outside hires and completely overturned the system of our restaurant.
    Data breach led to them providing thousands of employees w2s to a scammer.
    You never got off a dinner shift before 11 on the weekends.
    Mornings are basically charity
    Bartending is pointless and the money is sparse.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck dealing with the corporate heads.

    Scotty's Brewhouse Response

    Scotty's Brewhouse was purchased by a private investment company, but the organization is still lead by local leadership who were in place prior to that purchase.

    I worked at Scotty's Brewhouse part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Absolutely no pros to this place

    Cons

    The coworkers were horrible and catty, there's a hierarchy at this restaurant. Don't expect to be a server unless you work there for a year or more. Management doesn't know what they're doing and don't deal with problems. Some days there would only be 2 hosts so one person would be bussing the entire dining room (which they don't tell you is a part of your host job - they don't hire bussers) and the other would be seating. It was just a mess in general - very stressful.

    I worked at Scotty's Brewhouse (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a fun environment when I started

    Cons

    In my time there we had a massive management turnover and it became clear that corporate was not giving the managers the support they needed. They were also extremely reluctant to give the promised compensation for employee referrals.
