Not worth your time.
Dishwasher/Baker/Cook/Prep Cook (Current Employee), Coon Rapids, MNJuly 19, 2014
Pros: usually pretty easy to request and receive days off outside of holidays, most of the managers are good, co-workers are great
Cons: corporate is worst ive ever had to deal with, they will cut anything they can including your wages and hours, constantly asking you to do things beyond your job description, not close to competitive wages, if you need to support anybody including yourself you wont make enough, every day you have off they will try to call you in, virtually impossible to call in sick or leave work sick, rarely get breaks
If your in high school and just need a first job to get some experience this is a good choice, but if you need to support yourself or anybody else its not worth working here.

Flexible, great co-workers, and understanding
Line Server, Cashier, Server Assistant (Current Employee), Merced, CAJuly 11, 2014
Pros: reliable co-workers, communication and priority skills
Cons: hard to stock when busy
A typical day at work consist of filling food on the food bars and salad bars, provide customer service, clean, sanitize, and store foods properly.
While working with this company, I learned how to successfully manage my time, the ability to work in groups and individually, adapt to new environments and changed menus, alternate priorities, and work – more... efficiently under pressure. Furthermore, I learned how to speak my mind when necessary, ask questions when unsure, and to have a positive behavior.
My co-workers are awesome. They are very helpful, understanding, and reliable. Their communication is excellent.
The hardest part of the job is to keep the food bars full and floors clean when busy and under pressure.
The most enjoyable part of the job is working with not only co-workers but reliable friends as well. – less

Busy Server
Server/ Cashier (Former Employee), Rockford, ILJune 20, 2014
Pros: discounts
Cons: getting messy
During your shift you make sure that the tables are clean for the customers to continue eating or to for customers to sit. You make sure your area is cleaned not only on the tables but your bust area and the floor. We get customers what they need if they ask. I learned how to juggle up to 50 tables at one time and how to properly handle a server tray. – more... The management was always kind and curtious and were willing to help out when needed. The workers there were always smiling and great to work with. – less

Unprofessional
Utility (Former Employee), Westchester, CAJune 13, 2014
Pros: 4$ meal company discount
Cons: dishwashers and cooks can't take breaks, managers would clock you out and have you working off the clock.
A lot of bickering and problems at this restaurant, the managers often took hours from people without warning, and hired more staff than needed reducing the amount of hours available for each individual job.

TYpical Day
Waitress (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJune 5, 2014
Best part of the day is meeting new people and different personalities. Some customers were old, some young, and some kids. Each one brought something different to remember. Some bad days of course but more good. Nice place to work if you have patience and love people.
