    Pros

    Super easy place to work. The coworkers are amazing and most of the regular guests are great too.

    Cons

    Inconsistent money and poor management for the most part. Managers don't worry about issues until it immediately effects the way they look.

    I worked at Texas Land and Cattle (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - had a great manager at the time, heard that wasn't always the case though
    - flexible with my school schedule
    - they were increasing employee incentives when I left
    - most coworkers where super cool

    Cons

    - some cooks and servers make your job harder
    - San Antonio people in general do not know how to tip
    - Some people don't know how to order a steak, and they make a big fuss when they order something they didn't mean to order

    Advice to Management

    Raise your standards when it comes to hiring cooks and servers

    I worked at Texas Land and Cattle (More than a year)

    Pros

    I liked the work environment and the people I worked with.

    Cons

    We got payed with tip-share which made made my paycheck unsteady. Many things within the company kept constantly changing. Management was all over the place.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain consistency in rules and approaches to situations.

    I worked at Texas Land and Cattle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You have a job. You are either desperate, or do not inquire at all as to the position of a brand before you join it. Finally, you may just be stuck there.

    Cons

    They do not pay you on time. They pay your salary, but not your bonus. They do not pay their vendors on time. You are constantly hounded by vendors as to why they haven't been paid. There is no accountability. Go dine at any one and tell me you disagree.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new job. The owner does not deserve to have a team of people that work hard for him, only to be literally, ripped off.

    Pros

    Staff is typically friendly and everyone works well as a whole team, our managers try to accommodate our schedules, employees get 50% off meals, plenty of hours to work

    Cons

    Short staffed in Austin area makes it difficult to be strictly part time, threaten to fire because of change of availability (wouldn't say this is student friendly), things change too frequently - there isn't consistency for guests or servers or the kitchen and training is never up to date / people aren't on the same page. Hours range from 2-hour shifts to 11 hour days with minimal breaks. No off the clock breaks are given which makes it difficult to grab a meal or go home in between shifts. Even if you're hired at part time they will try to push you into full time and then get upset when you can't make your shifts or cover it. You get paid by check bi-weekly. It's hard to advance to a better position, and pay fluctuates heavily from $9/hr to $20/hr making it difficult to manage money.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people at part time and bully them into full time, don't hire students and not respect their school schedules, don't over delegate and end up ignoring your staff's needs, have more staff meetings to understand what's needed and how things can be improved. Corporate needs to be more involved at the store level and engage with the staff to understand what's going on. Marketing needs to increase their activity to draw in more guests, there need to be incentives for long-term employees - eventually earning free meals, a bonus, a wage increase, a promotion offer, paid vacation, benefits etc.
