    Pros

    The hours were very flexible and can make quite a considerable amount off of regulars and on the weekend mornings.

    Cons

    The customer is always right so no matter what you say or do, if the customer says you are wrong you ARE wrong and that is that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees sometimes they may know how to handle a certain situation because they have delt with a similar one like that before

    Pros

    The food discounts. Flexible hours for a college kid. Pay was descent because of returning customers. I like the job. Not a career...but a good job to get a foundation in the service industry.

    Cons

    The owner would come in and mess with us trying to run things, but just became confused and it was more funny than anything. Some of the employees were a little questionable when it came to service. Sometimes not friendly and a gossip circle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More fun events or incentives to keep us motivated. I like the $$. Give better areas to better servers, not just based on tenure..

    Pros

    Great money, Good hours, opportunities for SMALL advancements (host to server or server to trainer). Turnover was low because most of the management was professional and courteous.

    Cons

    After training a new server she became my manager in 3 weeks. Eventually she was fired and arrested for stealing from the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is necessary for any company to function, but it needs to be qualified management
