        I worked at Moxie’s Grill & Bar full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        - Fast paced, upbeat, and result and product quality oriented - Start early (6am) , finish early (off work by 6pm at latest) - Team spirit - Meal discount - Management was awesome and fairly accommodating.

        Cons

        - Tight knit clique included part of management, which can cause problems when delegating tasks or when discipline was required. - Always rushing, trying to cut staff costs. - Staff can be immature and cut corners. -No benefits. - Breaks can be postponed indefinitely when busy

        Advice to Management

        Rein in the drama , provide more leadership training and support to supervisors. Encourage chain of command in the back-of-the-house and with the waiting staff.
