Server/Host/Bartender (Former Employee), Flint, Mi – July 22, 2014
Pros: environment, coworkers, and the regularity of guests.
Cons: no medical coverage available
Typical worked day consisted of greeting guests and making sure they received the best experience. My management team and co-workers all worked well to ensure that we provided the best service possible. The hardest part of the job, for me, would be if a customer didn't like the particular food item, or it didn't get delivered in the way it was intended. – more... The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing satisfaction on my guest's face and knowing that they would visit again. – less

Pros: great team work
Cons: not very much benifits at all.
Working At Famous Daves Was Ok Not My Prefered Job Of Choice. I Learned Alot About Pre Paring BBQ Foods. Managers Were Very Kind And Able To Work With You When You Had Things Going On In Your Life. Some Of The Co-Workers That Had Been There Longer Than Me Were Very Informable On What Needs To Be Done Good Team Work Invironment. Hardest Part Was Probably – more... Spraying Everything Down At The End Of The Day To Make Sure I Was Sanitized. The Best Part Was The Crew I Was Working With. – less

Pros: 1/2 off lunch. tips, short shifts.
Cons: no healthcare, no breaks, short shifts
This is a good job it pays decent and I am happy with most of my coworkers/ management. The day usually starts off slow with a lot of little busy work to get the day started. Mid day we get a lunch rush around 12 or 1 and ten it slows down until dinner at about 4:30-7:00. The day ends with cleanup and a check out with management. I've learned that just – more... because you think something is right or the right way to do it doesn't mean anyone else cares. They may have their own way and it's better to keep your opinions to yourself. I really enjoyed interacting with guests and making them feel at home! – less

Pros: discount on food
Cons: little pay
loved to go to work not only because I was making money but, the environment was simply fun. I learned how a kitchen opporates in a restarunt. management was very understanding and easy to communicate with. The hardest part of the job was dealing with a 40 minute wait line in a small area. Thing I enjoyed most was the music.
