      Pros

      You gain a skill to multitask and mentally register a long list of tasks that will comes in handle. Gain a sense of appreciation for people working in the food industry.

      Cons

      The management suck! Managers lack communication, organization and interpersonal skills! It's all management! They take out their frustrations out on workers when their horrible management causes the resturant not to perform well. You get abuse from all sides! Customers, co- workers and management! Everyone is taking out their emotions on you! They work you crazy long hours and pay you way below mininuim wage because you get tips. Tips aren't as great because the poor management causes most customers not want to tip. The company is too cheap to do anything proprely. Also, the place is disgusting.

      Pros

      The only pro was the free food I was able to take and the 50% discount.

      Cons

      Long hours. Terrible management. Everyone was on there phones, servers and hosts sat in seats where customers should be sitting. NO ONE wore non slip shoes. There was a lot of fighting and drama and making people cry. Employees would argue with customers to the point where they are about to fight. Oh did I say the management sucks? Most of them were racist. And i got fired for not having non slips.
