Trainer/Waitress (Former Employee) – Grapevine, TX – 3 January 2018
The hardest part of the job was the inconsistency of money, if it wasn't busy no one was making money. I definitely learned alot about have a variety of people skills as well as how to handle many different types of customer service & guest satisfaction situations.
Utility Pot Washer (Current Employee) – Daytona Beach, FL – 27 July 2017
I was a dish washer or professionally known as a Pit Master and Utility Pot Washer, which I believe to be the most important job in a kitchen and every employer their treats you just as such. The work place was drama-free and everyone worked together in a timely professional manner.

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.
