    I worked at Cactus Club Cafe part-time

    Pros

    Easy money, easy hiring process, overall good training program.

    Cons

    Scheduling could be rigid and was released very late.

    Advice to Management

    Management can be too young and it can get political and clique-y very easily. It is hit and miss with managers. Some are great are helpful and others are frankly useless and not qualified.

        I worked at Cactus Club Cafe full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Cactus has amazing structure within their company . Training is extensive and it builds great work ethic.

        Cons

        They do not give back to their employees very much at all. Their idea of staff functions is making employees come to a party held at 8am before the restaurant opens, and then having everyone clean up before work. They will not pay you half an hour after you are cut, and doctor hours a bit in order to meet their labour requirements.

        Advice to Management

        The company is great to work for and the culture is fantastic, however, giving back to employees and ensuring they are properly compensated for their work should be #1 priority.
