    I worked at Bonefish Grill part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good coworkers. Its your typical server position. Training can be a bit rough but once you get past it tips make it worth your while.

    Cons

    Not too many! Managing partner for my store was a bit incompetent but coworkers made up for it!

    I worked at Bonefish Grill part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people I worked with were fantastic. When the food was prepared as it was intended, it was phenomenal. Very popular in the area so we were busy very often.

    Cons

    Management styles differed greatly between managers. Was sent home at the beginning of a Sunday shift for something that happened the night before that was not my fault, and the whole experience was extremely embarrassing.
