    I have been working at Stoney River Legendary Steaks part-time

    Pros

    It is a great place to work.

    Once you get through training and show that you want to work there, it is really rewarding.

    I have been working at Stoney River Legendary Steaks part-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours, above average pay, and high volume, upscale environment.

    Cons

    Management is very out of tune with operational staff, no room for growth within the hosti position.

    Pros

    i don't really have anything to say in this section

    Cons

    Pay is really only through tipshare which sounds good but is less than what they originally say. You do get a check every other week but don't expect to have any money. The people who work there aren't the coolest to be around.

    I worked at Stoney River Legendary Steaks part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun environment, good food. Management was pretty helpful most of the time, but when they were stressed out, it would trickle down to staff.

    Cons

    Working as a line cook was fun, but after the kitchen would close, all waiting staff would leave, and it would be up to the cooks to clean for hours until everything was finished. We were paid less than the waiters, but were required to do so much more. I wouldn't ever get to go home until 1am/2am.

    I worked at Stoney River Legendary Steaks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Everyone worked together as a team (kitchen & front staff) typically that is not the case at other restaurants

    Cons

    No cons, the restaurant was bought out by J. Alexander right after I left so I do not know how things are now

    Pros

    Easy Money; You really become friends with fellow employees. Most of the people you work with are young, educated, and pretty people on the inside and the outside.

    Cons

    Management is not considerate of your time, and it is really hard to take time off. Even on your days off you will be begged to come in because "they really need you" even if this is not true. They are good people overall, and they care, but they tend to take each other for granted. Most stay around for the money, even though they really want to quit.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees time! Know that serving is just a small part of what they want out of their careers. If you value and respect us, we will in turn be happier to work with you, and grow more as a team.

    Pros

    My co-works were great. I also liked that they had set schedules and had major holidays off. The PPAs were usually high

    Cons

    Some management needed help. No request off system for vacations, just has to get shifts covered.

    Advice to Management

    Morale seems to be lacking in multiple locations. Get a request off system. A lot of favoring taking place.

    I worked at Stoney River Legendary Steaks part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The guests that dine here are almost always pleasant to take care of, the teamwork foundation is a great and effective one, and the income is adequate! It is a great restaurant, with products you can stand behind proudly.

    Cons

    At the location where I worked, I found that the "managers" severely lack maturity and professionalism, making the work environment challenging, micromanaged, and often full of negativity. It is hard to respect someone who constantly disrespects their employees, and who never gives positive feedback of any kind, even when it is deserved.

    Advice to Management

    Give positive feedback as well as negative. When all you say is negative or nitpicky, and you never focus on the successes, it creates a very hostile and inhospitable work environment.
