A fun Atmosphere with a lot of dancing and loud music.
Pros: 50% off meals up to 5 people
Cons: short to no breaks
Joes Crab Shack was a very FUN place to work! The atmosphere was a fast paced, energetic feel. The summers are super busy, and the winters are super slow. Advancement for me was very achievable as within 1 year of working for the company I was an hourly manager. It takes a special kind of person to work for this company, if you don't have the "spark" you wont make it. Being outgoing, weird, crazy, misunderstood people is a MUST! The hardest part of the job was the job/home life balance. I was working 70 hours a week and having a 1 year old son at home and a needy fiancé, that didn't work out very well. The general manager was unwilling to reduce my hours to 40 hours a week and my
home life was going under water real quick, I had no choice but to put my 2 weeks in. when I did, I just wasn't scheduled after that.
