Hard work does not always pay off. I was with this company for a little over a year I was very dedicated and I loved working there. The staff seemed friendly including management, but soon after a year finding out that it was all a lie. Shortly after getting a new GM and front desk manager who would brag about firing people from her last job. I would not recommend working here unless you do not mind the favoritism over certain employees and poor management skills

HOURS ARE TERRIBLE BUT CONSIDER YOU FULL TIME WITH ONLY 32 HOURS A WEEK, the "Chefs" are a joke. I couldnt get out of there fast enough. The only positive would be the free food. But theyre even very strict on what we can eat ex. Tenders or burger
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything

Terrible work environment created by General Manager. You are Micro Managed to the extreme. GM holds grudges and creates a hostile work environment. Many Managers came and went within my 2 years.

In starting, I had experienced three kitchen inspections in my first three weeks of employment ranging from the Bexar County Health Department as well as quality control teams from the corporate headquarters.
I inherited a filthy kitchen and had to work very hard to bring the cleanliness and sanitation up to company standards.

It was hard work but I managed to get great scores per the inspections.
Pros
Nice, professional people to work with.
Cons
Lack of enough staff.

Different customer every day to be able to attend. Great benefits. Always other departments to be able to work when your department was slow. Great management. The hardest part of the job is you do have to stand for over 8 hours a day.
Pros
Free employee lunch
Cons
Must work holidays.

We serve all and any guests to meet their needs. I make sure I'm able to execute what is needed to assure excellent customer service. A typical day is less than typical, I can be utilized wherever I'm needed. That means setting up for banquets; serving, helping a manager with what a customers requests are. My coworkers are fun to work with cause we all band together to get the job done. I have not experienced anything classifying my job to be hard, when applying a plan and effort it is anything but difficult.
Pros
insurance, flexible hours
Cons
would appreciate more hours
