Just a job...
Garde Manger (Former Employee) –  Winter Park, FLApril 17, 2015
This place is okay to work at if you need a second job or something to hold you over until you find a better one. Employees are rude to each other. Management is only a one man show, even though there are several managers; they don't know what they are doing. Not enough hours or money. Favoritism goes on waaaay too much!

Sous Chef (Current Employee) –  West Chester, OHFebruary 25, 2015
Chefs work 12 plus hours. You are responsible for all manager duties and working a hourly position. My coworkers are great and care a lot but its the rest of the management team that does not. The most enjoyable part of the job is producing great food.

Supervisor, Bartender, Inventory Assistant (Current Employee) –  Livonia, MIFebruary 13, 2015
This was a great place to work through college, but the high turnover in management reveals the issues higher up in the administrative chain, and makes for an unattractive job prospect.

Fast-paced, casual, up-scale.
Server (Current Employee) –  West Chester, OHDecember 18, 2014
Mitchell's is an outstanding seafood restaurant that caters to the casual, up-scale crowd. The interior is modern/contemporary while the exterior is reminiscent of a seafood dinner by-the-bay. This job, as with most restaurant jobs, is like playing the lottery on each shift. You have the potential to make unlimited amounts of cash based on your professionalism, knowledge, and attitude in serving your patrons. During the holidays, a server can walk home with anywhere from $60-$300 in any given shift. The fast-paced nature of the business helps to pass time with ease as there will always be a task to be completed whether personally or helping a team member. I would highly recommend a career with Mitchell's Fish Market to anybody with a flair for dining sales or previous experience!
Pros
half off meals, ability to pick up shifts at a moments notice
Cons
unpredictable pay, low hourly wage

Well oiled machine with lots of learning
Server (Former Employee) –  Brookfield, WINovember 11, 2014
A typical shift is coming in well groomed and go directly to table section and prep for the shift. Knowing all specials going on and start side work. Throughout shift serve tables as well as continue side work with team members. At end of shift make sure section is clean as well as accomplished all side work with team members. I learned the intense training of working for a corporate restaurant from all aspects of BOH and FOH. The management was a well oiled machine. most of the co-workers were easy to work with, but it was hard to get them to warm up. The hardest part of the job was getting to know my co-workers and over staffing. The best part was helping all the guests with decision and being so knowledgeable of all the food and drinks!
Pros
healthcare and up selling challenges
Cons
lack of team atmosphere and flexibility

Server Assistant and Server (Current Employee) –  East Lansing, MIMay 8, 2013
It's the restaurant industry so you will always run into the tables that drive you nuts, but your coworkers and management more than make up for that. Fun, great place to work.

Great people delivering genuine hospitality
SOUS CHEF (Former Employee) –  Livonia, MIOctober 24, 2012
Part of the Cameron Mitchell Restaurants at the time I worked for them now part of the Ruth's Hospitality Group, Inc., had the best culture I've ever seen to date from a company, their main motto was; "The answer is YES, what is the Question," extraordinary in my opinion.
They considered people coming into the restaurant as "guests" not "customer", very wise in my eye. They truly made everyone feel important, like it should be.
