    I have been working at Earls Kitchen + Bar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some good people, 50% off food, flexible schedule(kinda)

    Cons

    Feel under appreciated, people who make a big deal about not being the “full time saucier” get babied and moved up the rings, basically don’t brown nose the people they’ll make you they’re slaves instead do a lot of complaining and comparing to move up. Horrible ethics and chefs/Sous’ Show heavy favouritism.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time showing favourites. Spend more time trying to build a team.
