    I have been working at The Local (More than a year)

    Pros

    Supportive management
    Flexible schedule
    Fairly lenient about being a bit late as long as you give any kind of notice

    Cons

    upper management is going for more of a corporate vibe and some of the changes include more people on shifts, aka less money for servers and bartenders
    customers are, shall we say, not always the nicest
    liquor laws in the town are asinine

    Advice to Management

    stop trying to over schedule shifts

    Pros

    Employees were friendly. Most customers were regulars and were also friendly.

    Cons

    Highs and Lows. Very busy or dead. Cashier paid hourly. Night serving shifts didn't profit more than $100 per shift on a regular basis.
