            Pros

            Supportive work environment with a great management team. The starting wage is good and based upon experience in the industry, you then have the opportunity for a raise every year and it can be a dollar or more. They are excellent at accommodating school schedules. Coworkers feel more like family!

            Cons

            Hours can be unpredictable sometimes, but that is the nature of the restaurant industry.
