Mixture of lazy and hardworking people, but they become your family.
Hostess (Current Employee), East Windsor, NJAugust 24, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule, employee discount
Cons: low pay, hard to find shift cover, a lot of side work
The pay sucks majorly. but you get tips. Hosts get 6.00/hour plus 2% tip out. Sometimes, i only get 3 bucks tip out -_-. Definitely not worth money for the effort you exert.The workplace is fun and laid back and I like that a lot, they kind of become your family.

Working for a large franchise
Bartender, Server (Former Employee), Mechanicsburg, PAAugust 20, 2014
Pros: always knew what was expected, comfortable
Cons: monotonous atmosphere, dealing with a more difficult clientele
Working for a large franchise in the food industry is fairly straight forward. There are benefits to the expectations and requirements that go along with a franchise. Always the same expectation. The hardest part of the job was how monotonous the work could be and how demanding the clientele could be. However, knowing the expectations and the same product – more... lent itself to contentment for some. – less

A very fun and lively place to work.
Server (Former Employee), Quincy, ILAugust 15, 2014
Pros: free food when working and half priced when off of the clock.
Cons: upper management ignoring your abilities and lower end of pay scale for servers
Would come in see where I was on the schedule or which cut I was. Then go and start on side work before it got too busy. I then took excellent care of my guests while the were in the restaurant. I then kept up with side work through out the night. Then most enjoyable part of my job was the people that I worked with. The Hardest part of my job was the – more... fact that management did not recognize any of the talents that anyone had to offer the company. – less

Productive, enjoyable place to work
Hostess (Current Employee), Williamsport, PAAugust 13, 2014
Pros: 50% off, making new friends, being around the general public
Cons: pay is low, hours are not as much as i would like
A typical day at work is anywhere from 4-10 hours depending on what the schedule is. Showing up to work 15-30 minutes before the shift starts, clock in and begin the shift. During shifts we seat people, talk with guests, we have receptionist duties, and we help the servers if needed. This job has given me a lot more experience with the general public. – more... It has taught me to be very patient with people and to become more comfortable with communicating with guests as well as my co-workers. The management here is very good at helping and directing the workers here especially when help is needed. A hard part about the job is when dealing with the guests that seem to be unappreciative or rude, this job has definitely given me more experience with that and I am thankful because instead of getting frustrated I can help them more, give them more options, or ask for help. I love working closely with people and making new friends. This type of job has given me the experience I have wanted to get with the general public. – less

Fun and eventful job but required a lot of dicipline
Server/Shift Leader (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAAugust 9, 2014
Pros: percentage off on food during shifts and off shifts
Cons: no breaks
Typical Day at Work: side work such as taking out trash, sweeping the kitchen area, putting up glassware etc. Always staying on top of your tables making sure area was clean and guests were happy. opening duties, depending on your job title you had certain duties, shift leaders had more work because we would have to come in early. closing duties we – more... would have to clean the whole front of the house to the back of the house to make sure everything was in order for opening shift the next day. Always a rush, especially on weekends. No time to sit and take breaks.

Co-workers: were like a family even through the rough times and frustration of customers.

Hardest part of the job: was closing up because by then you are tired and counting down the hours.

Management: was so-so could use more team building

Most enjoyable part of the job: was the fact that you get to meet a lot of different people and can also network. It's kind of like a stepping stone if you take advantage of the benefits because you never know who you'll meet. – less
