Bartender / Server / Team Leader (Current Employee) – Gainesville, VA – March 29, 2016
Bonefish Grill is an excellent establishment to work for. The staff is friendly and fun to work with. The management is easy to get along with and work for. Bonefish allows for every possibility to advance for anyone willing to do so.
Host/ Server (Former Employee) – Wesley Chapel, FL – December 30, 2015
I had a lot of fun working at Bonefish for the time that I did. I learned interpersonal skills, and further my teamwork attitude. I am still friends with my co-workers, whom I got a long with all throughout my time at Bonefish. The hardest part of my job was the amount of time I was working. However. the most enjoyable part was learning new skills, and getting to know the people that I worked with.
Host Manager/ Trainer/ Server/ Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 10, 2015
A typical day at work for me at Bonefish grill was usually very long. I did a lot with this company i started as a host then moved to being a host manager and trainer, then a server and event server, and then a brand ambassador. My day would usually consist of me moving to at least 2 or 3 different jobs in a day. In the mornings i would be the opening manager and was responsible for the set up of the front of the house and other minor things. After lunch i would go into the office for a few hours and do some marketing work or go out and do field marketing or call several people about booking large parties. Then at night i may serve or manage the floor. The management team had problems within its own. Although i was an entry level manager, i did not have to deal with a lot of their issues. My coworkers were great, our turnover was very low and we became a big family. The hardest part of my job was dealing with none of the upper level managers never being on the same page with each other. the most enjoyable part of this job was the food, opportunities, and the staff. Overall i loved the company i only left because my original store closed and my new store was too far from where i lived.
staff, free food, job enrichment, job advancement, and the guests

I haven't worked for this company in years. When I was there it was horrible. The GM would always be hungover, the kitchen had no leader ship and the management played favorites with the FOH crew. It was very hard for me to make money at this place. I have no regrets leaving there.
I didn't mind working here. Definitely had supportive supervisors. They promote within for those who work very hard and exceed expectations. The most enjoyable part was talking to guests and problem solving at a moments notice. The most difficult were the long hours.
• Provided professional foodservice duties at a very busy fine dining establishment • Managed the front of the house as a ‘Key’ employee • Counted liquor for inventory and ordering • Contacted liquor reps and placed liquor orders for the restaurant • Ran training program classroom for all new servers / bartenders
I learned a lot about liquor inventory and ordering. I also learned that great management means a lot to maintaining happy employees.
Co-workers were great until the entire management staff turned over leading to the rest of the staff leaving and a whole new group of people were hired.
Hardest part of the job was getting used to new management.
I met a lot of great people here, I was new to town before I started and had a lot of great friends when I was done working at Bonefish.

Fun atmosphere, just no room really to move up in the company. There is definitely favoritism with management. Management should improve in aspect of taking recognition of whos working harder and actually listening to employee concerns.
Fun atmosphere, great food and drinks, easy up sells
