The Tilted Kilt
Hostess (Former Employee), Phoenix AZSeptember 30, 2014
Working at The Tilted Kilt wasn't the best experience, it was more of a learning experience. I enjoyed meeting new kinds of people and learning the restaurant business with a little bit of a twist. If I had the opportunity to go back, I wouldn't. I learned a lot about a completely different style of management and all the different regulations that – more... are followed due to the location in downtown Phoenix. Overall it was a good experience but I would never decide to do it again. – less

Manager (Former Employee), Bolingbrook, ILSeptember 22, 2014
Pros: sports
Cons: lack of appreciation
I found it to be overwhelming that the lack of discipline amongst other management made life more difficult. I closed almost every night and had no say otherwise because of other managers schedules.

Franchise ran by individuals that aren't familiar with the industry.
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee), Suwanee, GAAugust 27, 2014
Pros: great staff, managers (when staffed), life/work balance (when properly staffed)
Cons: no benefits, finale months no trained leadership, low pay
In my final 2 months working with this franchised location the then current management team (which consisted of 2 people) were asked to cover the stores operations, open to close, for 7 weeks in a row. The owners had difficultly finding anyone that would join this location, that would accept their offers, which were commonly low; plus word had gotten – more... around about the broken system within the store. The ownership team consisted of several members, never was one identified as a go to which lead to confusion and delays in problem solving. Situations of confrontations between owners and customers and even our hired entertainment had become common customer discussion. The par for the store was 5 managers, yet 3 was the goal and at that time was 2; all that was important was the cheapest and bare minimum. Within approximately 7 to 8 month several members of the management team left; the most trained and respected member of the team, the GM, resigned to take over another location under new ownership.

The atmosphere under the proper leadership was what attracted me to this company, the concept and possibilities were astounding. Unfortunately this particular franchise was failing from the top down. – less

THE WORST
Busser (Former Employee), Hallandale Beach, FLAugust 9, 2014
Pros: kilt girls and an interesting atmosphere
Cons: poor management and lack of organization
WORST JOB EXPERIENCE EVER. I found out about the Job opening when they set up a recruitment booth at the college I attend. Due to the fact that It was located in Hallandale and the campus was in downtown Miami most of the people they talked to said that it was too far. Since I lived in North Miami, I decided to take it upon myself to apply since the – more... place hadn't even opened yet and my living so close to the Restaurant/Pub made me an Ideal candidate.

Low and behold I ended up getting the job and attend training day to find about ten guys and thirty girls in attendance. One of the corporate guys came in and gave this whole speech about how the company was founded and how it was Unique (Yeah, RIGHT!). He then talked about how we would all get uniforms. School Girl outfits with knee high white socks and black Mary Jane's for the girls and black shirts with knee high black socks with green ribbons, Black Hiking boots and.....a black kilt for the guys. (WAIT..WHAT!?)

That's right, they made me, a young lad of 20 years with "chewbacca-hairy legs" wear a kilt.

This I did, while I mopped and swept floors, bussed tables, replaced syrup pouches in the soda fountains, replaced ice in the Ice bucket behind the bar, Cleaned behind the bar and cleaned the windowsills and blinds. The worst part about the place was just how disorganized the place was. Even for a place that was just opening. The staff was rude and unprofessional.
On one particular evening of the managers ex-girlfriend came into the restaurant and walked right into the kitchen like she owned the place causing him to freak out. This incident made me and my fellow staff members extremely uncomfortable. Breaks were 30 minutes long and required us to change out of our uniforms and change back into them once the break was over. The worst part about this was that our employee discount was a one time deal and every time after that we had to pay FULL PRICE for the food we ate on break! The bathrooms were disgusting and would clog two or three times a week.This was probably the single worst thing about the job since we had to mop up the flooded restrooms.

Scheduling was a joke, I'd tell the manager I would be out for a certain period of time and comeback to find a new manager in his/her place demanding to know where I'd been. This was ridiculous since I told more than one of the managerial staff members the days I would be out and marked them off on the schedule. After having this happen to me Twice I told the 3rd and newest replacement manager about it and asked If there was anything he could do to keep my job. He told me to come back on Saturday and that we would go from there. So I came In on Saturday. It was there opening weekend and I worked a 16 hour shift. 10 am to 2 am the next day. Two days after that I came back in to get my paycheck and after receiving it I was told that they Kilt had hired too many people and lacked the funds to pay them. Although I was upset at first I knew they wouldn't last very long if things continued they way they had. and a year later I searched It up on yelp and sure enough It had closed down. While I can say that I enjoyed being able to see pretty girls every day and having such a strong comradery among my fellow bussers, I would never work for the kilt again. Not for all the money in the world. – less

Who doesn't like being around Ice Cream All day?
Front of House Manager (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INJune 18, 2014
Pros: 50% off ice cream, good hours
Cons: micromanagers
I would hope that the management that originally opened the franchise when I worked there is not there any more. I was very happy about working there when I was first hired, but I learned quick the management had a very large control problem. Luckily, I was trusted enough to be come a shift leader when I was there, increasing my responsibilities which – more... was very helpful to me in High School. Eventually though it all took a turn, a new general manager was hired and it was very clear that he had an out for me. Many of the typical High School employees were replaced with other people who were qualified but perhaps too old for the position....to say it nicely. – less

I worked for this company since it opened in 2012. When I first began working here I loved it. I actually looked foreword to attending work everyday. The longer we were open the more comfortable every person got. Co-workers, management and guest all became very un professional to the point where I now work in an uncomfortable work environment

Pros: you get to be around people, meet you new, learn details about foods
Cons: dealing with mean people, standing up all day
A typical day at work would be to go in and set the resturant up , cut lemons , make sweet tea and roll silver wear.Managment usually sits on the computer and figures out ways to bring in more business.My co-workers will help set up everything , as well as make sure the resturant is clean before we open our doors.The hardest part of the job is dealing – more... with naturally unhappy people.The most enjoyable park is making people smile and getting told how great of a job you have done. – less

Fun place to work and make money!
Server/ Server Trainer/ Shift Manager (Current Employee), Denver, COJuly 2, 2013
Being a Kilt girl is demanding but fun! The co-workers are surprisingly great girls. Management is positive and uplifting! The hardest part of the job is becoming an "object" for the guests. Greatest part of the job is having a blast and making good money.

Owner is a crooked person
Prev emp (Former Employee), LincolnApril 1, 2013
Pros: girls are great, nice to work with
Cons: the owner
Touches the girls innappropiately, instructs boh crew to underportion, bounces vendor and construction checks as well as payroll. Lies to everyone to save his butt, tells u what you want to hear but dont deliver. Wish lincoln would put him out of business. The concept is great but its the owner thats the main problem.

Productive and Actively Fun Place to Work
Server (Former Employee), Green Bay, WIOctober 31, 2012
Pros: 1/2 off one meal per shift you would work, or a free meal every 1, 000 $ in sales you would make, & the fast cash
Cons: no raises, & sometimes u would just break even, if u made to much in tips, you wouldn't get a check for that bi-weekly pay period, and the pay hourly
A typical day at work would be, coming to work; change into the Tilted Kilt outfit. All girls for that shift would help do opening "things" (ex. cutting lemons, making coffee, putting the soda machines together, wiping off all tables, re-stocking caddies with ketchup, and mustard, etc.) All employees would meet up at the host stand to do a pre-shift. – more... And then would go about our typical serving/ waitressing for that shift.
What i learned in this kind of a work place was patience comes with time, and to be fast on your feet (literally). It taught me how to brainstorm with a short amount of time, and multi-tasking.
The Management was awesome, very involved, and supportive in the girls/ employees work during each shift.
My co-workers were always team players, never had an issue with any one of them, all very nice, and willing to give help when needed.
The hardest part of the job was probably dealing with "rude" guests/customers, & the long dbl shifts. But I worked through it, each and every time.
The most enjoyable part of the job was no matter what kind of a mood you were in, all the co-workers could make your day better, and put a smile on your face. And you were leaving with fast cash, each and every day. – less
