The days at Legal Sea Foods work a lot of work but went by very quickly due to the amount of work that had to be completed. I learned alot about the shipping and recieving system in a big company. My managers and co workers were very helpful and consistent, this beiing a big plus due to the amount of work was required in a timely manner.

Terrible management and work environment
Overnight Cleaning Crew (Former Employee), Short Hills, NJOctober 6, 2013
Cons: poor treatment of employees
You come in at night and leave when ever they allow you, never at your scheduled time. The management staff is very irresponsible and immature honestly. The co-workers are the only highlight of this job. Its a very stressful job.

Best of the Best Seafood & Wine Selection.
Server (Former Employee), Boston, MAApril 15, 2013
Pros: family meal, great food, great wine list, great drinks, great service.
Cons: some extra time intensive tasks
Training at this company is very intensive, because of seafood and shell fish allergens we have to be extra careful when serving any guest. When I originally began my career with legal, I lived in Boston. The location I worked at was home to a 10,000 bottle wine cellar and every server was inclined to build their wine knowledge. The company offered – more... wine tastings as well as dish sampling through our training. Management was always very pleasant and helpful. All of my co-workers were very knowledgable whether it was wine and spirits, or food. The hardest part of this particular job was making tea believe it or not. We had individual cast iron tea kettles that we would bring anyone who ordered tea. It wasn't a difficult tasks by any means, just time consuming, and if you had a couple of orders of tea and it was busy and there was no cream close by, or any clean kettles, you might just be pushed into the "weeds" a bit. – less

Pros: always opportunities for: career advancement. the free meals are a plus

Server (Current Employee), Huntington, NYMay 22, 2012
My co-workers are what keeps me coming back to work.
The hardest part of the job can be the demanding customers.
I have learned a great deal about human nature, behaviors, and also about nutrition and caloric contents of the foods we serve.
