    Pros

    Management is good. They have a nice balance. Maybe you will get put on day shift that's a good thing.

    Cons

    It's 24/7. Stuck working holidays, midnight, weekends or all 3


  2. "24/7 hustle and bustle atmosphere with a focus on guest service, appearance standards, and good employee relations."

    Pros

    Good opportunities for adjusting work-life balance as a hourly employee. Management promotes skills development, personal growth, and offers frequent training.

    Cons

    Challenges include disorganized lower-level management, scheduling conflicts, and very limited cross training, which becomes useful in the event of employee loss.

    Advice to Management

    Be more relatable, the people on the bottom are the reason you have a place on top.

    I have been working at Turning Stone full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good team work depending on the department you're in. Usually will work with your schedule. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Benefits for part time employees are slim, including PTO. Rarely get pay raises or incentives even if you have worked there a long time or have good reviews. Required to work weekends and most holidays. Don't offer sick days and will take away PTO days if you call in. Rarely encourages personal growth or doesn't give the means to do so. Not very concerned with the health of their employees or how the job duties affect the health of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more incentives to work. Give annual raises. Give sick days and more PTO days.

    Pros

    For the area it pays well and great benefits. A very friendly place to work. It is not a physically exhausting job.Turning Stone hires most of it supervisors and management from within the organization.

    Cons

    It hard getting days off, and most likely they have you scheduled for every holiday through out the year, and probably every weekend throughout the year

    Advice to Management

    Every employee should get at least one weekend off every month, or at least set a reward system where employees can get some weekends off every few months.

    Try to coordinate better so employees do not have to ask for days off like 2 months in advance it should be like 2 weeks in advance

    Pros

    You work with man different people, different backgrounds and have interaction with many different levels of managers. In the food and beverage industry, I always felt respected and did not feel as if I was just a number on their staff list. Not much negative about my position.

    Cons

    Be prepared for long, crazy hours. However- they recognize hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate clearly with your staff.
