This was the first real line cooking job that I have had. the hours were terrible but I was young when I worked there so I would stay up all night anyway. It takes a different kind of person to work in a restaurant. We wouldn't get off of work till 1 am sometimes. definitely not a bad job for someone in their youth, I was 18-19 when I worked here.

Serve guests with outstanding service.The best part of my job is meeting new people and seeing them leave happy. On the other hand not everyone leaves completely satisfied. Co-workers that turned into friends, make running the restuarant easier. Im committed to the job at hand.

Joe's Crab Shack is an American chain seafood casual dining restaurants owned by Ignite Restaurant Group. The best part about the job is the Co-workers. When we have to make a lot of food we use team work to overcome the obstacle.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Sanford – September 10, 2015
Joe's was the first real service industry job I held. At my first store, there was such a culture of development and future. There were many great leaders that started at that store and went on to be future leaders on the company. Joe's was passionate about its people and its business. Due to going public and some corporate restructuring, the brands,values and service model changed. I worked with and for many great people at Joe's and I am appreciative of my time spent with them.
Server/Host (Former Employee) – Methuen, MA – September 8, 2015
Its a decent place to work with high price plates but don't get yourself mixed up in drama which could be easy there. Managers are professional and coworkers are easy to get along with with and overall pleasant environment.
Host (Former Employee) – Orlando, Fl – September 8, 2015
Awesome company to work for. Great management, slower store, but steady. Fun environment to be in and apart of. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside of my colleagues and learning from them.
Server (Former Employee) – Merrillville, IN – September 1, 2015
Loved working here and the friends I made but I did not like how frequently the management changed within the 8 months I worked there. I learned how to work with people of all kinds and how to serve and be a better customer service person. environment is fun but they need to work on management and make the business run smoother.
Greeter (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – August 27, 2015
Im responsible for seating guests and making sure their experience is memorable. I work with a lot of young people who dont realize that even though the restaurant is so laid back, this is still your place of employment. I hate that there is no scheduled end-time. You work until they dont need you anymore. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Ive never seen a Host do so much "other" work. Its good if youre looking to compensate your income.
fun job, good for college students, flexible schedule. overall, I loved it! co-workers always have a welcoming, vivacious attitude. the dances are always fun and keeps the crowd hyped. writing on the bibs was one of the best parts of the job!
understanding and flexible managers, great tips, great working environment, long lasting friends
long hours, too many people on the floor at times, working past closing due to last minute customers
Line Cook (Current Employee) – Henderson,NV – August 26, 2015
A typical day there involves working on any one of the stations there and helping out others if they need any. Management is really easy to get along with and will work with you if you cannot make it to work in time(as long as you call in).
Server (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – August 25, 2015
A typical day at work consists of having fun with the customers as well as taking care of their needs. Providing exceptional dining experience. Doing concept dancing with co-workers to ensure guests are entertained. Keeping restaurant tidy and organized. If you have time to lean you've got time to clean.
Lead Server/Waitress (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – August 20, 2015
They try to keep their employees part time in order to not give full benefits . Don't care for their employees the one in Montclair, Oakland is small so they cut hours a lot. The general manager changed up a lot..
Hostess (Former Employee) – Daytona Beach, FL – August 20, 2015
Fun environment to celebrate special occasions or just enjoy going out to eat. Can be a great place to enjoy yourself for the summer. Typical day as a hostess consists of greeting customers, ocassionally taking food to tables and making sure that customers get the best experience possible by following seating arrangements.
It's truly a polarizing atmosphere. Clear as day who the people are that care about not only the integrity of the restaurant but of themselves (because they are the ones cooking it after all), and the ones who are just in it for the paycheck at the end of the night. The kitchen is one big machine, and if one part doesn't do it's job, the entire machine will malfunction. But such is the life of a cook. Nothing is all good and I was always fortunate to have more of good than bad to work with.
