    I worked at Village Tavern full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The money that can be made in this restaurant is outstanding. Even during the slow season, the restaurant is busy all the time.

    Cons

    The management here needs some serious improvement. They are easily overwhelmed, disorganized, and they often disrespect their employees

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are people too. We all make mistakes but if you want to be respected, you need to give respect.

    I worked at Village Tavern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The clientele is normally upper middle class, so for the most part tips stay around 20%

    Cons

    The management is condescending and doesn't recognize a good job done

    Advice to Management

    Start encouraging your employees instead of ripping them down and making them resentful as hell

    I worked at Village Tavern full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, discount on food, some cool co workers. Flexibility in scheduling.

    Cons

    Drama and management does not care about employees. After you have been there awhile they expect to take advantage of you but then in return treat u like crap.

    Advice to Management

    Get better management that cares about the staff and not their pay check.

    I have been working at Village Tavern full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Food is fantastic and ridiculously easy to sell. Management genuinely cares about the employee for the most part and will easily work around your schedule as long as you are a diligent worker.

    Cons

    It's very close knit and difficult to find your niche with the employee's. Their is also an abundance of gossip and trash talk, which is expected in a restaurant.

    Advice to Management

    Be more keen on listening to employee input. In all honesty, we know how the restaurant behaves and flows better than you do. Especially when it comes to dealing with people.

    Pros

    Good money for the most part. Great management staff. Great server staff. Hotschedules app makes things easy.

    Cons

    Money could be hit or miss some weeks. You can have a $150 2-top, or a $40 six-top with kids. Schedule depends on how many people they have - sometimes during lulls you could be working almost all available shifts.
