      Not a place for full time chefs

      Pros

      Tip out was the best of any restaurant I ever worked at, unbelievably easy line position as there was never any prep for your station, you were just a cooking monkey. Management was understanding with extenuating circumstances, and easy to get along with if you were professional. If you show talent and passion, you can move through the promotions pretty quickly.

      Cons

      You only get fries and bread for free, despite 5 star fine dining restaurants actually feeding you for free. You get a whopping 40% discount on the food though, but your wages don't cover it. I was "full time" but in order for the company to avoid having to pay benefits you were only ever scheduled for 5 hour shifts. Thankfully, most of the kitchen was filled with temp workers who used it as supplemental pay and didn't really want to be there, so I could switch shifts with them and manage to get a full 8 hours. Worst part there is that when you were legitimately sick none of those other workers would ever take your shift so you were stuck working sick, or had to explain to management that you couldn't work because you were going to hospital. Huge rah-rah attitude from the company, they want you to love every aspect of being a "kegger" which can get sickening if you just want a job.

      Pros

      Good pay and benefits .

      Cons

      I was working there for 4 and a half years and asked for a raise and a performance review. I got the raise and then the performance review. My kitchen manager said I improved a lot from last year and then my hours start going down from 5 shifts a week to 4 and then finally 3. Then I get called in on my day off for a meeting that I got paid for, only to get fired without warning for inability to perform to a standard. No managers talked to me to ask if I was okay or if I needed help or to coach me. No feedback at all when in the past with other managers, I got feedback, I got coaching, I got told they want to see me succeed. Fired for poor performance 3 weeks after a performance review that was an improvement is very fishy and the paltry severance package I got was at 19 hours per week when I specifically asked management to give me full time hours. That place is a revolving door of workers and I think I was replaced with a cheaper worker.
