Job was okay in the beginning, but the new managers made it awful. They were really pushy about corporate non-sense, pushing more and more work on the front of the house, and generally never had your back. You have a ridiculous amount of sidework for sever pay. And I mean A LOT more than the average restaurant. They push unrealistic goals but never praise you when you reach them. They treat you like a child, no cell phones on you at all, no cursing in BOH, and forget teamwork if you aren't liked. Clients can also be awful and you have a lot of really slow awful nights. On a Friday, everybody was usually averaging $70, on a WEEKEND night. In general, I averaged $12 an hour, but you need to work doubles all the time to do this (11+ hour). Also, the last two words that should turn you off of this job? ENDLESS SHRIMP.
