    I have been working at Tijuana Flats part-time

    Pros

    Good people, laid back, holidays off, good hours

    Cons

    Tips are awful. 20 dollars for 6 hours. In 6 months of working here, they’ve gOne through so many managers and they were all god awful and on power trips. Current one is a bully. Also they are massively in debt at my store. People cut early a lot. In the negative most days.

    Advice to Management

    Vet people more before promoting them. Some empathy and management training would be great. Hire from within. Better marketing.
