    Good money. Fairly well known concept with a reputable service culture. So the money is consistent. As long as you are diligent about standard operating procedures it is an easy place to work.

    May not be for some who cannot handle tough critique and a slight amount of micro management.

    Advice to Management

    Relax more! It’s a big place. You do a great job considering how much you have to do!

    Pros

    The environment is great to be in. The cooks are nice and the food is good.

    Cons

    Depending on what position your in, it may be over saturated to a point you may get more days off then you want, or be cut where it makes coming into work useless. Depending on your position, you may not be trained in the position as there once was a training regiment. Once advice I can give is, KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN from others.

    I have been working at Yard House part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Money is steady and clientele is cool and casual. Great extensive menu with something for everyone. Company culture is great “on paper.”

    Cons

    Company culture is “great on paper” but coaching is so extensive that it pushes on bullying. Many servers go in believing they can be fired over human error or even as a result of kitchen error. Favorites are praised for fabulousness, and their errors aren’t recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Save your attitudes. Servers shouldn’t feel like bad people for minor errors. Servers shouldn’t feel like they’ll lose their jobs everyday.
