    Pros

    Earls trains their employees in a thorough manner and cares about the success of their employees. You are also sure to make good friends working at earls.

    Cons

    Management is sometimes not very helpful and do not respect server's schedules at times. There are also some duties given to servers that should be appointed to a different person, such as watering flowers on the patio in a dirty hose, only to dirty your clothes before work.

    Advice to Management

    Although it has been a long time since most of you served, don't forget to be helpful. Be respectful of individual book offs, it creates stress for people to have to cover shifts all while working full time.
