fun place to work
Cook (Former Employee), Orlando, FLMarch 28, 2014
I worked for this company for 13 years and the last year has been really tough. Constant changes to the menu, poor communication among manager's and no raises for the employees. I hadn't had a raise in over 8 years. It was time for me to move on.

Great co-workers and good food.
Server (Former Employee), Fayetteville, NCFebruary 27, 2014
Pros: loyal customers, 50% off food for employees, great co-workers
Cons: no benefits, rare breaks, lack of care for employees
Smokey Bones employees on a good day are full of energy and look out for one another as well as their customers.Working there has taught me a lot about how hard but exciting the service industry is. Unfortunately, management was what needed work. Not all of management was like this but the General manager was the main problem for most of the employees. – more... The servers in the restaurant had to deal with constant verbal harassment and bullying as well as lies, so he could cover up his mistakes. Our best days and most successful days were when he wasn't there. Over all I would say Smokey Bones is a great place to work with high energy and good money. – less

Server (Former Employee), Peachtree City, GAFebruary 8, 2014
Pros: discounted food, great teamwork, great co-workers
Cons: no benefits and being up on my feet all day
Loved my job there. Most of the customers were great. Management was reliable and knowledgeable. The kitchen staff and other servers were always on top of their game.

The most difficult part of this job for me was when the customer wasn't satisfied with something. I don't like when people are not satisfied with the service I would give.

The most enjoyable – more... part of the job is when you could see the teamwork among servers during the busiest times of the week. – less

Productive, Exponential Expansion Opportunities, Difficult to balance life and work due to hours
Bar Manager (Current Employee), Chesapeake, VAFebruary 3, 2014
Pros: great people, good benefits, good pay, and free food!
Cons: 65+ hours a week, late night hours, never ending deadlines
A typical day at work consists of inventory, coaching, training, cost monitoring, guest resolution, guest satisfaction, quality assurance, and at times the list never ends. The most difficult part of the job is balancing the extreme hours while maintaining a healthy personal life.

Fun place to work at
Service supprt (Former Employee), Melbourne, FLJanuary 13, 2014
Pros: great friendships and great atmosphere
Cons: some sense of non working together with some team mates
Never a dull moment. Learned a true sense of working together with other team mates. Hardest part of the job was picking up others slack that did not put forth a good effort

A great place to come and eat, an even better place to come for music at night
Greeter (Current Employee), Lithonia, GAJanuary 9, 2014
Pros: becoming a better person
Cons: no discounts, rarely breaks
A typical day for me at Smokey Bones is always a handful. From complaining customers to unorganized employees along with the managers. Working for Smokey Bones definitely thought me a lot of patience, in may cases it most definitely made me a better person. Within my last year of working for Smokey Bones I have encountered too many different managers – more... in and out. The hardest part was having to adjust to so many differences in such a short period of time. Unfortunately a few of my co-worker are always on the edge of their live bringing it to work with them. In all honesty the hardest part would have to be my co-workers along with the managers. The best part was always seeing how happy our customers would feel while engaging in conversations and satisfied our customers would leave. – less

Darden concept, fast-casual BBQ restaurant
Manager (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MIDecember 6, 2013
Pros: highly structured, regimented work environment. good benefits.
Cons: offered few creative choices.
I would monitor and supervise all kitchen activities, train and coach teammates, and help create a productive, friendly and energetic atmosphere. I enjoyed Darden's logistical and technical support. Virtually every decision or problem had an intensely researched corporate protocol in place to assist you. They offered a good benefits package and 401K. – more... The manager were supportive and the advancement opportunities were virtually endless. Unfortunately, the entire chain of Smokey Bones restaurants were sold to another company and my position was eliminated. – less

Easy fast paced restaurant
Server (Former Employee), Brandon, FLNovember 29, 2013
Pros: cash in hand and half-priced meals
Cons: the lack of health care
Most of the time everything was easy going. The only times things got difficult when the food from the kitchen was not going out right and on busy nights that could cause my job to be even more difficult than it should of been. Management overall was pretty good depending on what managers or supervisors were in the building. In the aspect of my coworkers – more... were overall pretty good with the exceptions of some not working to the expected performance. Previding guests with an enjoyable experience I would say was the most enjoyable part of the job. – less

It was a nice fun environment with good music and lots of fun!
Server (Former Employee), Boca Raton, FLNovember 18, 2013
It was always fun going into work. My co-workers & I were like family! We always worked together and there was constant communication to reduce risk of things going wrong. The hardest part of the job was the customers but I was always calm and had a smile on my face. The most enjoyable part of the job was the bond I formed with my regular customers – more... that would come in! I still keep in contact with them! – less

hard work
Line Cook (Former Employee), West Chester, OHNovember 8, 2013
The one I worked at was hard to work at since we could never keep people, and when we got busy it showed, it was hard at times to get the managers to help without having to yell 50 times and falling to like 15 minute times for a simple salad or fries.

Kitchen staff rude, certain servers not will to help
Server (Former Employee), Mentor, OhNovember 5, 2013
Pros: flexible with schedule
Cons: too many to list!
I have been a server for 10 years and found this job not very rewarding! All new management in the entire restaurant not well organized! We would run out of menu items on a daily basis. All of these thing unfortunately effect your tips. Side work took forever to complete! Also had to tip out the bar which I would have been fine with, however they are – more... making more hourly and also getting their tips from their section!! – less
