Good Stepping Stone
Server (Former Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJFebruary 27, 2017
Good stepping stone when trying to transition to fine dining. The best part would have to be the discounts. Receiving these crazy discounts has led to dining out more at fancier places.

Horrible
Front of House Staff (Former Employee) –  Troy, MIJanuary 22, 2017
If you believe in no work life balance then this is the place for you. Landrys restaurants is open 365 days a year and you are required to work every single holiday.
When the restaurant is busy, the ticket times range from 45 minutes to an hour.
I worked here for a while and there has been a HUGE turnover for front of house staff as well.
You have to pay 9.50$ every 2 weeks to get an employee discount on food AND soda coffee etc.
Salary and business is very unpredictable.
Staff is friendly, but has had a few management changes in the past few years.
Pros
Friendly staff.
Cons
Too many to list.

disgusting, gluttonus corporate greed has driven this company with no respect for their employees
Server (Former Employee) –  Edgewater, NJJanuary 14, 2017
typical work day consisted of working with a physically abusive & incompetent management & unprofessional wait staff

with people stealing each other's tables, no recognition for going above and beyond or working extra hard, no job security, no respect as a human being whatsoever.

it was truly a horror to work for landry's. the company is terrible, focused only on profit and with no concern for their employees working conditions.
Pros
On good days, you could earn decent tips
Cons
too many to list

Too many chiefs...
Server (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJanuary 6, 2017
Overall a very horrible experience. The first week I worked there, 3 people quit because of overload and lack of support. Typical restaurant where the name just keeps it operating. Most co-workers are clueless and so is management at times. I dont recommend.

Crew (Former Employee) –  Galveston, TXDecember 5, 2016
I enjoyed working for this company because this was a more behind the scenes job that I had within the corporation. I worked personally for the CEO (now full owner) on his yacht in Galveston Texas.

Great place to work with good people and a great place for beginners in the industry. Work hard here and you will succeed. The Core Values the company instills in you are not only great for the workplace but everyday life as well. I learned a lot of the skills I have from working at this company.

Landry's is a fine starting point; however, advancement is next to impossible.

The work life balance is good, the day to day operations are a bit tedious.

Trainer/Waitress (Current Employee) –  Grapevine, TXAugust 29, 2016
A typical day is chaotic. Management is unaware of what is going on throughout a shift. Management overstaffs for one position while not hiring for understaffed positions. Most enjoyable aspect is creating an animated time for the guest while being able to see the coworkers I've trained excel and progressively get better.
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
no breaks, no job security, poor management

Bad Company
Bar Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 29, 2016
The company itself doesn't really take care of their managers. Promotions with no raises. Spend more time at work than with my family.

Fast pace environment to work on all areas of accounting
Staff Accountant (Current Employee) –  Corporate office in Houston, TXJanuary 19, 2016
Each day there are issues of AP to resolve, verification of AR, preparation of journal entries, contact locations to follow up with issues to resolve, review of income statement, verification of AP, review of balance sheet.
Learn about work more paperless, verification of documentation and data, to do analysis of general ledger accounts and more.
The most difficult is to contact with the GM on a short timeframe to resolve urgent issues and work long hours.
