Amazing workplace
Server (Former Employee), Greenbelt, MDApril 6, 2014
Pros: half off meals
Cons: availability
A typical day at work consists of dealing with guest and food basically. Waiting tables, maintain conversations with guest, and building friendships with guest. Management is okay it could be better. Co-workers were amazing. The hardest part of working there was the management. The most enjoyable part of the job was the guest.

Food Expeditor (Former Employee), New York, NYMarch 29, 2014
Lots of orders at one time keeps the kitchen running all day and night. I learned how to keep while working fast. Management didn't run too smoothly, maybe because the restaurant was new. The co-workers were friendly. Keeping track of so many orders proved to be challenging but nothing one couldn't handle. The co-workers made the job easier, keeping the environment friendly.

Good compensation, poor organization
Manager (Former Employee), Houston, TXMarch 20, 2014
Pros: pay and benefits
Cons: disorganized corporate structure
The lead up to and immediate aftermath of the company going public led to management having to cut labor and work hourly positions throughout the day to make ridiculous labor goals. There is high management turnover but the compensation and benefits are more than fair

SERVER (Former Employee), Arlington, TXMarch 14, 2014
Pros: fun people
Cons: short breaks, no benefits.
A typical day at work consisted of working with the public and being friendly and social able with the guests. I learned to become more organized and very well mannered customer service. The hardest part of the job is working on your feet for 7 to 8 hours but the most fun was the dancing and getting to meet new people everyday.

Great and Exciting restaurant to work
Certified Trainer/Opener (Former Employee), Newport Beach , CAFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: great new friends amongst guests and wonderful management team.
Cons: had to cover for many of the staff when they "partied" a little too hard the night prior.
With Joe's Crab Shack in Newport Beach, I was a server that moved my way up through the rankings. It all began as a new resident in California, but it turned out to be a very refreshing change of life. I had regular clients which I was happy to see upon each of their return visits, and I became one of the certified trainers and location openers. Joe's was a great place to work with a great concept to keep the guests constantly involved. The food was no the healthiest, but the Dungeness BBQ crab was quite delicious.

inconsistent hours, schedule changes without notice.
Cook (Former Employee), Douglasville, GAFebruary 4, 2014
This is a cooperate business. More worried about labor cost than, employees. Pay is poor, work is demanding and not well organized. Micro-managed and stressful.
