    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Jack Astor's part-time

    Pros

    low tip out, flexible hours, good money to be made, easy to transfer locations, close-knit staff, opportunity for promotions.

    Cons

    Constantly changing the management staff, tight and revealing female uniform, late hours, you can have your hair up at SOME locations but the elastic is not allowed to show, expensive uniform, inconsistent schedule.

    Advice to Management

    There is no consistency with management. Managers are constantly being traded, hired and fired, making it hard to develop trusting relationships.

    I worked at Jack Astor's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working with great, fun people. Making good money, especially on busy weekends. Food was delicious & made fresh.

    Cons

    It used to be a really supportive and fun environment to work in, but then new management was brought in from other locations and no one got along. Lots of gossip and poor kitchen management pitted against the serving staff. Long, late hours are to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the fun & supportive management TEAM mentality. Perform exit interviews.
