Good Work Environment but BAD people
Host (Former Employee), Orlando FLoridaSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: 50 % off everything, free drinks
Cons: no breaks, bad management, bad co-workers
I Usually go to work to do the JOB i Applied for, but Instead they Give me 5.91 an Hour + Tips & Put me to Clean all day and help Servers, so therefor NO tips. Hardest Part of the Job was LEARNING myself, Some servers and Hosts would leave during my training, and go smoke pot, they even got yelled at for leaving me by myself with no experience. Management was Mean and NO help, Just Put on a show like they care but they really don't. My Most Enjoyable part of the Job was the Customers and Leading the Dance every hour with the rest of the FOH team. I Learned a lot about Host/Greeter Jobs. It isn't easy Unless you Open yourself up and put yourself in the customers shoes!

Server (Current Employee), Sacramento CAAugust 15, 2014
Pros: family environment, dancing, always something to do.
Cons: no set schedule or hours, poor benefits, money is always a gamble (tips are your money maker)
Constant face-paced environment, with multitasking skills tested. Extremely fun environment, with coworkers and managers who are reliable and willing to help at anytime. I enjoy seeing my guests enjoy themselves while dining in on their favorite food.

Retail Associate (Former Employee), Hobart, INJuly 24, 2014
I greet customers as they walk in the door as well as bus all tables, sell retail, rally up menus, and sit people all at once. I feel they need to hire Bus Boys and Hostesses separately. Management was very unorganized and we were always short staffed.

Waitress/Flex manager (supervisor) (Former Employee), Hampton, VAJuly 22, 2014
Pros: learned a lot, great money, fun people and environment
Cons: money is hit or miss, some good days some bad.
This was my first serving job which was a great learning experience and set the tone for my appreciation for customer service. I was able to advance on the amount of tables I'd get throughout the day. Multi-tasking always throughout the day, always cleaning and restocking things needed. The best part of a serving job as anyone would know is definitely the luxury of instant money. I mostly worked my serving jobs while in school.

Productive work place and a bunch of fun with a lot of dancing.
HOSTESS (Current Employee), Orlando, FLJune 16, 2014
A typical day at work consists of seating guest that walk into the door and turning over tables making sure there ready to be used in a 3 minute time after the party leaves. Every now and then I also have to go into the kitchen and do prep/portioning work. From working at Joe's Crab Shack I've learned how to deal with certain situations, for instance, with issue that the guests have with their service, food, or any other problems they might have. The management at Joe's I must say has improved greatly in the past 2 and a half month I've been there. We got a new General Manager and everyone is now doing what is expected. My co-workers are great people but as always in any job, people have their demanding times even if their classified as the same job title as I am. As well as them believing their better than others. The hardest part of working with Joe's Crab Shack is having people think their better than you. Physically nothing that I do is too demanding. What I enjoy most about my job is walking around and talking to the guests. I love to have a relationship with them and give them everything that they need to have a Crave able Joe's Experience.
