    I have been working at Jack Astor's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Fun and pleasant peers -Good money with tips included -Flexible hours, very good for students looking for summer work

    Cons

    -Lack of breaks (I've never had one in about a year) -Long hours (typically I work 4:30 to 2 am) -Slightly abusive management (they will punch out my time if I'm not done cleaning my section within a half hour of my last table leaving) -Management expects people to be at least 15 minutes early for their shifts, but to punch in for their scheduled time so they will be unpaid for those 15 minutes

    Advice to Management

    -Support breaks more -Pay people accordingly to how long they're working
