    I have been working at Keg Restaurants full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing company (sports teams and functions), great benefits once they kick in, best managers I’ve ever worked with as a whole.

    Cons

    You don’t know when your shift will end, especially because the Keg has a policy that you wait to end your shift until every last table has not only paid, but left the building as well. Sometimes it happens where you will be waiting around for 2-3 hours on just one table.

    I have been working at Keg Restaurants part-time

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, excellent management, collaborative workplace, and easy to choose your own hours!

    Cons

    It is a tips-based income, and relies on the generosity of others to make good money. Minimum wage pay otherwise, but you never leave with just that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Taking care of your staff is one of your strong points, and I think that really fosters the Keg culture!

      I have been working at Keg Restaurants part-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Positive culture, low turn over, good training

      The culture is still good, but has gone down a lot the last little while. Care more about bottom line than anything else.
