    - Training is very detailed and overly rehearsed to ensure that staff are performing effectively. - Skills outside of basic serving duties are taught. - Presentation and self image are well maintained.

    Cons

    - Working on weekends are a must. - Salary is not the greatest but is somewhat understandable for a restaurant job.
