    Pros

    Open door policy. Manager is better than what the job calls for. Credible health plan. Limited micro-managing.

    Cons

    Literacy would help. Insecure assistant management. Inability or lack of how to relate one one one with employees. Little if any room for advancement. Policy seems to be ' just enough to keep corporate at bay "

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your assistant managers to be more productive. They are too complacent. Non show any initiative. Try having them stay sober.

  2. Good money for a server in the area

    Pros

    The only positive thing is the coworkers they are all a great group of people.

    Cons

    Very poor management. They treat you with no respect and like you are an idiot.

    Advice to Management

    Show respect and actually schedule where people can actually do the cleaning and give back the extra vacation week back to those who earned that.

  6. Tips are great but only staying here until I find another job

    Pros

    Tips

    Some of the people are nice

    Discounts on food

    Cons

    I usually work 1.5-2 hours passed my scheduled time.

    Open 24 hours including holidays. If you're new, be prepared to work every holiday while others are never scheduled

    Advice to Management

    They could post the weekly schedule in advance instead of the day before the new week starts OR the first day of the new week.

    Schedule more people during the busy rush hours.

    At the end of your shift, servers are all in charge of cleaning up specific areas. I was never trained in what to actually do, and there are various ways people have told me what's supposed to happen (i.e there needs to be a concise way of cleaning up)

  7. Very informational and requires daily involvement.
