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

    Pros

    Flexibility, awesome co-workers, good clientele, great food

    Cons

    cannot work over 30 hours, no benefits, poor upper management

    Advice to Management

    in house management is fair, upper management of the company doesn't care for its employees. Everyone is replaceable... no loyalty

    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.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working at a place where the individual was valued. As a host, management listened to my suggestions for improving or modifying current practices.

    Cons

    As with all restaurant jobs, management sometimes sided with guests over staff. For the most part, this wasn't a problem.

    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

    Pros

    There were not many, apart from the fact that one could behave as badly as possible in the presence of management outside of work hours.

    Cons

    The entire structure and culture of the establishment. The blind lead the blind. If you feel like working for a low rent Cheesecake Factory, have at it. Otherwise, you would be better served finding and employer that has some idea of why the doors are open from day to day. Probably one of my greatest failings is spending more time than it took to complete my first interview trapped in this disaster.

    Advice to Management

    Is there actually management?

    The managers were changed often.
