I worked at the Rainforest Cafe and I love working there! The people are great and supportive. Everyone is always willing to help you out. The environment is so energetic it is hard not to smile when you come to work! Very kid friendly with the menu and the overall environment.

Busser/Server (Current Employee) – Oakbrook Terrace, IL – 15 September 2016
A typical day at work included multitasking, heavy-lifting and eight-hour shifts. I learned exceptional customer service and hosting skills. My managers are very talented and taught me how to be a great employee. I have long-lasting relationships with my co-workers. The hardest part of the job is receiving enough hours and the most enjoyable part about the job is the constant communication with customers and staff.
Waitstaff (Current Employee) – Galveston Island, TX – 14 September 2016
I am working for my restaurant as a full time employee. Being on the Island means being dependent on the season. Summer/Spring break are extremely busy but winter season is honestly pushing you to find a second job. My overall experience with the Company is good. I am enjoying my workplace and my team. This is definitely a good place to start your career as I can see it. You gotta start with a regular waitstaff position and try to move on to the Supervisor which is not hard at all (if you are not lazy) after supervising for up to 12 month youll be able to transfer to any of 500+ US locations as a regular manager which is really cool. Corporate positions are always available with the degree 'preferred'. So yea would recommend this Company to my friends. Human resources is not very responsive to your requests tho.
50% off food price at all LANDRYS owned properties, hotel discounts.
I feel I must begin this with a caveat. It was here that I learned I was not meant to work for big corporations.
I thoroughly enjoyed my position at Landry's due to having the ability to work without being micro managed. That being said, alot of time was spent watching management try to run a day care full of women (and some men) that were more interested in socializing than getting the job done.
Landry's helped to set my path in what I would find as being a career in accounting. I will forever be grateful for the knowledge I obtained while there. The promise for advancement however was the light at the end of an extremely long tunnel with many obstacles that seemed to have no end in sight while trying to stand out from 100 others that were trying to reach the end of that tunnel as well.
Independent working space, gym in building, catered lunches and social events
Management lacking knowledge in management skills, Extremely low leveled employees put in to train new employees

Landrys is a good company but some they would require you to sell safari club memberships and if you did not make your quota each month you was made to attend what they called safari club bootcamp at 7am on a Saturday.and if you attended bootcamp more that 3 times in one year you lost your job....
Server (Current Employee) – Galveston, TX – 12 November 2015
I like working for the company overall. I would just like a career not just a job. I am a single mother of two, I barely make enough money to cover my bills and provide for my family. I get governmental assistance and it's still barely enough...
Customer service is always first. I have learned the behind the scenes operations including order placements, inventory management and schedule making. There are a large variety of opportunities throughout the park that an employee can help contribute to the operations of whether it is in a store, banquet or a large outdoor event.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – 29 October 2015
Capi's Italian Kitchen had really good homemade food. The Pizzas were all made to order and thin crusted. Our coffees were also delicious after dinner. Working for the company was extremely exhausting. You punch in and work and that was all there was to it. It was stressful on busy days. You never new you would even get a break.
The management staff at Pleasure Pier is just awful. They are unprofessional and treat there employees like they are just a number. I was a ride operator there and the very first shift I worked 10 hours without even a bathroom break. The managers don't appreciate their employees and and talk down to them. The managers are all in there mid to upper twenties, from the east coast and very egotistical. Based on my experiance, I would never work for Landrys again.
Great growth potential, long hours for big rewards
Sr. Service Manager (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – 12 November 2014
The company is growing rapidly. If you are willing to put in the time (70hr weeks) and relocating with relatively short notice(24hrs) the pay off is huge. The staff is great, management is approachable, and the guests are always happy.
