Great Place to work
Hostess/Server (Current Employee), Avon, INJanuary 24, 2014
I have worked here for a couple years now and I love it. I love the people I work with and the people I get to meet. Although, I am looking for a second job only because I have a daughter to provide for and the extra money would be great.

Food Server (Current Employee), Milpitas, CAJanuary 17, 2014
Pros: good schedule
Cons: the money is not stable
I work morning shifts and with the location of the restaurant around businesses it's best for me to make decent money and still be able to provide for my family. During lunch is the busiest, lots of customers come to eat. I have to do multiple things at a time, take drink and food orders pass them out all different groups of people.

fun upbeat environment everyone is there to help each other, even off the clock
Server/Trainer/Caterer (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZNovember 27, 2013
Pros: great hours and could always work more than what is scheduled
Cons: getting breaks and getting shifts covered when scheduled against availability
Opened the restaurant every morning. Sometimes I would be the only server on until the restaurant opened at 11. I trained almost every server that has started in the last 5 years. I ran food and took orders. I also helped out in the catering department if there was more than one catering that had to go out that day.I would help seat the guest when the – more... host was unavailable. – less

Not a good place to work if you are good at your job
Server (Former Employee), Tallahassee, FlNovember 22, 2013
Cons: bad management, unprofessional co workers, low pay, working off the clock, no chance for advancement, discriminatory labor practices
i worked as a server with a proven record of excellence and was often belittled by management. Management would often hire college students without experience based on looks, which in a serving capacity is obscene. I enjoyed the customers a lot. often i would get assigned sections that were difficult to make money in or be cut very early on in the shifts – more... making it difficult to make money. normally i would assume it was because others were better servers but in this restaurant this was not the case which made it unfair to customers looking for good service. i had one manager hit on me and the other tell me he wouldn't have hired me because i'm "not his idea of a server" which he later explained to a co worker that a server should be "young extremely pretty you know like a supermodel" i was often expected to work off the clock and asked on several occasions not to clock in until i got a table but still attend to side work. i was often asked to stay after off the clock to attend to cleaning that other servers had neglected to do. i would strongly suggest anyone looking into a serving position go elsewhere. this restaurant was a let down. – less

Becoming the face of the restaurant
Host (Current Employee), Mira Loma, CAOctober 16, 2013
Pros: discounts on food, free beverages
Cons: no breaks, low hours.
A typical day at work involves greeting customers, seating people, and providing menus for them. After being trained at On the Border I now consider myself an excellent communicator. The most enjoyable part of my job were the conversations I made with the families who came in for dinner.unfortunately theestablishment is closing due to low bussiness.

Server/Host (Former Employee), Gastonia, NCSeptember 28, 2013
Pros: discounted food
Cons: inconsistent pay
A typical day working at On the Border was usually fantastic. I would arrive at the restaurant, clock in, make sure I was stocked up for the shift, and start serving guests as soon as my section was sat. My managers were very kind. The hardest thing to deal with in the restaurant business was when a guess would come by and already be very irritated. – more... The most enjoyable thing would have to be how everyone that worked there was like a family. – less

Great company that strives on hard work and compensation
Pramood Hagalwadi (Trainer) (Former Employee), Weatherford, TXSeptember 12, 2013
Working as a Trainer for the Number One On The Border in the company was thrilling, I was challenged and motivated from day one, they raised me from someone who had no serving experience to becoming a gold level trainer. High volume, is the best way to describe the busiest restaurant in town, with large multi-table sections it was a bast entertaining – more... guests and running a floor. – less
