No steady hours
Server (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAJanuary 19, 2018
Hours were everywhere, night and day. Double shifts would be 11 am and then come back for the night shift at 5 pm. If you didn't live close by you would have to waste 3-5 hours till night night shift.

Not recommended
Server (Current Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VAJanuary 17, 2018
Management only cares about making money. Doesnt care about over staffing the floor, nor do they know when to properly cut back number of servers if slow. They will discount anything or take food off a check on a whim just to keep our guests "happy" so they don't complain even if they are completely rude & in the wrong. The type of guests that are attracted to our location aren't the tipping kind, so be prepared to go out of your way for nothing. $0 tip on a $100 check is a common thing.
Pros
sometimes we get to eat messed up dishes
Cons
little to no tips, rude guests, incompetent management

Productive place
Cook (Current Employee) –  Woodbridge, NJJanuary 10, 2018
It's a nice place for work in general, but the managers need to do more in all situations
That will be to do a better job and we will have costumers with more fidelity

Cut throat and too competitive

Typical day at Bahama was stressful
Management was great and very understanding
Workplace culture was tense and mean at times
Hardest part of the job was being socially accepted by co workers

Most stressful job ever
Greeter (Current Employee) –  Gainesville, FLJanuary 4, 2018
This job would be okay if the managers didn't stress you out about everything. We get told to do whatever the guest wants and when we do exactly that, we get yelled at for it. They never want you to go on a wait which is fine, but you're also stressing out servers and overseating them which causes less than great service for the guests.
Pros
Half off meal

Don’t work here

Horrible management constantly trying to clean house if you made a complaint. Probably one of the worst jobs I’ve ever had. I have no idea how they lasted this long.
Cons
No break, good luck getting a day off

Another dead end job
Virginia Beach - Trainer (Current Employee) –  VirginiaNovember 2, 2017
Been working here for three years now and Its sad to say but it really is a dead end job that's been taken over by corporate America. Management is more worried about bonus and how to save a buck then trying to take care of the guests. Even got to the point where the regional manger said he would never allow anyone who was in the Front of the house a raise. regardless of the expected world load being greater then any other employee present.
Pros
none they think 50% of is a big benifit but really its a spit in the face.
Cons
no advancement, poor management, bad regional leadership.
