They will work you to death
Waiter/Server (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – June 26, 2017
EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS RESTAURANT IS A FRONT -- Their motto is "Healthy food, Happy World" and claim to be the steward of organic, fresh and healthy foods but they are constantly cutting corners where they can and substituting non organic and cheaper produce(hidden from consumer knowledge). THEY DONT EVEN RECYCLE! come on, how can you be "Flower Child" and you don't even recycle. Goes to show everything about this restaurant is a front, and they do just enough so they can market the place to unsuspecting customers who genuinely think they are making a better choice for their nutrition and the world's health.
A typical day starts with a huge line of people waiting to get in the doors, and then non stop hustle until your shift is done. I wouldn't have a problem with this, except that management tries to micromanage your every move, and nothing is EVER good enough. Even if you have accomplished everything within your duties above and beyond standard requirements, they will still complain and desire more out of you.
They regularly send people home after only an hr or two shift, but demand that you have open availability in case they need to keep you for 4 hours plus. Complete lack of respect for waged employees.
They hire many high school and college students who don't know any better, and who do not have families to provide for, and use them to uphold a culture of overworking and under appreciating.
Pros include a decent pay (NOT BECAUSE OF MANAGEMENT, BUT BECAUSE OF THE TIPS -- THEY PAY LESS THAN MINIMUM) -
FRC dining discount (35%) - decent pay after including tips
No breaks, no appreciation for your work, micro management
