        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

        Pros

        Great environment, great co-workers, great work-life balance, fun and exciting environment. Great perks and incentives to be a good employee

        Cons

        Late hours which come with the job. Management can sometimes be more communicative. Training can be a little bit more comprehensive

        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.
