Family feel that really makes you look forward to going to work.A lot is set by head off so for management creative freedom is limited. However operationally, great for employment.

Received little to no training. Given ridiculous workload. Had to work long shifts, often without being able to take a break. Staff was rude and mouthy, trying to be Gordon Ramsay-esque.
Pros
None
Cons
Hostile work environment

Moxies is a great place to work as a server. It is always busy and certainly has its charms. With serving anywhere comes a good, fast pace environment where you can make very easy money as long as you are hospitable and friendly.

Horrible place to work! Management is horrible and disorganized and the fact that they make girls wear heels to serve is ridiculous and totally unfair.

Fast paced work environment coupled with an extremely nurturing management team made this one of my favourite establishments to be a part of. If given the opportunity to move up into supervisor I would not hesitate to take the position.
Pros
vast amount of technical vocation

Moxie's caters to all demographics, providing both a dinning room and lounge experience to their variety of clients. It is relatively easy to set your own schedule and a very social environment. The downside is there is a lack of glamour working in the food industry on the back end that is not visible to clientele, and unless you plan to secure a job in Food Services Management, there is little room to grow or options in positions.
Pros
Flexible schedule, very social.
Cons
Food industry, demanding customer base.

Loved working for Moxies, the hours were good during busy seasons, but if you are a student it's annoying not knowing when you will be finishing your shifts. You learn a lot, and if you do well, you are given more responsibilities. Your co-workers will encourage you to join them for out of work activities which is always nice. Managers are very understanding, and clear with what they want from you.
Pros
free meals/drinks
Cons
Instability of hours

Plenty of hours should you need them. Plenty of room for advancement if you show the hard work and dedication for it. They treat everyone fair and over all the establishment is a pleasure to work for.

Moxies has gone through new changes to the management and work ethics since starting work there. Experienced leaders mixed with newish management certainly makes for over all a good time with friendly staff that are focused and helpful. there's no other way enjoy working quite like Eatz inc. Moxies . I'v learned that the best way to achieve your goal is dedication and having a positive effect towards everything.
Pros
Staff meals, Staff partys
Cons
trainees
