Very productive and clean environment. Fish Tanks!
Safari Assistant (Former Employee), Nashville, TNJune 27, 2015
Pros: Free lunch for all double shifts
Cons: Nothing notable
A typical day at the Rainforest Cafe, owned by Landry's Inc., would be a 7-12 hour shift. We had our own break room with locker storage so that was the first place employees would head to drop off coats, electronics, etc. When the shift began I would go straight to busting tables and keeping the restaurant clean. We held bathroom checks every 15 minutes. The bussers operated on a typical 3- 4 man system consisting of one to two clearers who carried bust tubs, a setter who carried a silverware tray, and a "floater" who usually helped stock silverware, unload bust tubs on a busy night, help out the bar stock - glasses or trash - and/or help catch the dining area up. The management was the best I have ever seen in a restaurant. They were very interactive and kept business rolling while also maintaining good relationships with the employees.The job itself wasnt very difficult, however the long hours wear down on your back and knees. The thing I enjoyed most while at Rainforest Cafe was catching a break and seeing the football game scores at the bar televisions. Overall, this was my favorite job Ive ever held.

No life except for work and that was the 14 years I worked there. They pay great but that is so you give up your life for them.

Marketing director (Former Employee), New Orleans, LAAugust 19, 2014
Pros: employees were put first and always had the ability to give feedback, not only to changes made within the company, but also with the way the department could improve
Cons: offices are not located everywhere, only in certain cities.
I enjoyed my time working for this company, it pushed me to think outside of my comfort zone and encouraged me in growing as a person and an employee.

Retail Associate (Pathfinder) (Former Employee), Chicago, ILDecember 22, 2013
Pros: six month quarter raises
Cons: unorganized management
A typical shift includes greeting guest, upkeeping the store, clean up litter, cashier, restock the floor, stock the stock room once a week, adhere to a strict dress code, and preform a variety of projects given by management including daily sale goals.

I've learned how customer service operates, how handle a variety of situations in retail, and their POS system. My managers were never really on the same page. It was not the fault of ability, but that the main manager in charge is bi-polar to what she wanted done. It made it difficult for her assistant managers to give us employees proper direction. This corporation has a extremely high turnover rate. Most of my co-workers chose to leave due to the difficulties explained earlier. Some were fired because of what I believe miscommunications due to the issue I presented earlier. It is very difficult to always be under pressure from one manager or another while both are contradicting each other or are simply saying to do two different things. Instead of both of them saying the same thing. I enjoyed the location of my job. Before work, I could stop by somewhere to wait until my shift started, and after wards, I could go somewhere with co-workers.

Bartender/Server/Food Runner/Host (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVNovember 12, 2013
A typical day at work includes greeting guests, taking their meal orders, running food, cleaning. I have learned most, if not all of my restaurant knowledge from here. I started as a host with no previous experience and worked my way up to bartending. It sometimes feels as if management doesn't care much about their employees. They mostly do the minimum possible to avoid getting in trouble with corporate. The hardest part of the job is dealing with people and dealing with trying to find a manager when you need them. The most enjoyable part of the job is conversing with people.

Wonderful place to work
Hostess (Former Employee), The Woodlands, TXDecember 12, 2012
Pros: discounted meals
Cons: few hours
Typically working at Grotto consisted of manageable work loads and a smooth paced environment. I've learned many secretarial skills and my time there was indispensable. My managers all worked well together and made every day enjoyable. Co-workers maintained a familial sense and even on our rough days, showed heart. The hardest part of the job was also the most enjoyable. Hectic nights during the holidays often induced stress but everyone worked together and everything always worked out for the betterment of ourselves and our guests experience in the restaurant.
