I enjoyed certain parts of my employment here because of the friends I made, although, it was not a pleasant working experience. This is the only bar I have ever worked at where the fridges were constantly breaking, or some other nightmare situation will arise. The only bar I have ever worked at where the servers made a heck of a lot more money than bartenders and the bartenders here do A LOT of heavy lifting.

I had a great time working at Chubby’s Jamaican Kitchen as a server. I was apart of the opening team that opened the restaurant. Opening chubbys was my first restaurant opening experience and it’s was all pretty exciting, they really give you all the tools to succeed. From the training we did we learn about the restaurant group Gusto54, the concept behind the restaurant and lots of food and beverage knowledge. I got the chance to go trough a wine, beer, and rum training. The Chefs also gave us great knowledge on how the dishes were created and the origins behind them. Learned a lot while working at chubbys. Managment is very helpful and understanding, they would never overwhelm you with hours and they were great at giving time off requetsWorking there as a server was great money!!

Always overstaffed. They never cut people. You will get a TINY section and the restaurant is small enough as it is. Management is garbage and awful uniform. Wouldn't recommend
Pros
Food is good
Cons
Overstaffed, make no money, no staff break area

No consideration for staff. No staff meals. No lunch breaks. Not enough hours since they overstaff. Managers don't know what they are doing. They need 3 managers for 80 seats.
Pros
Great music playlist
Cons
Long shifts with no breaks/food
