    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Yard House full-time

    Pros

    There will always be a steady stream of customers, but clientele quality depends on location. Food is quality and since there are so many managers on the floor, they can help you solve issues with guests quickly.

    Cons

    Micromanaging is constant, and is frustrating after being in the industry for more than 5 years. I got threatened with a write-up for taking a ticket out of the window, to try to help out. Corporate shenanigans..

    Advice to Management

    Relax. Let your employees shine, and don't let all that power go to your head. Favoritism was rampant at my location and that is a huge disincentive to new employees,
