Fun atmosphere to work, fast paced
Waitress (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCOctober 17, 2013
Pros: discounted food
Cons: no benifits
I learned how to deal with many different people in a fast paced environment and still keep a smile on my face. Management was totally hands on with everything going on, but a few managers were not so nice. Co workers for the most part were easy to get alone with but you always have the downers. The hardest part was the relying on tips as income since – more... many people didn't tip well. Most enjoyable part was just getting to know your customers. – less

fun workplace
Customer service (Former Employee), Fayetteville, NCOctober 16, 2013
Pros: good tips
Cons: slow at times
good place to work, recieved good tips. a typical day would include me coming in and serving tables, and completeing my side work assignments. I felt like an inportant part of the company and very appreciated. The hardest part of the job was remembering everything I had to say with my greeting, but that got easier with time. The most enjoyable part – more... of the job was interacting with customers. – less

You know a restaurant is good when the guest leave and they say how good it is. I hear that almost everytime I work and I love it! My co-workers are great and very dedicated to their jobs! The hardest part of the job is nearly nothing I can think of its very simple and enjoyable!

Business is closed
Server (Former Employee), Asheville, NCAugust 9, 2013
It was hard to work there. Serving the demands of the corporate structure was more desirable than serving the customer's demands.

Takes up alot of your time.
Server (Former Employee), Richmond, VAJuly 22, 2013
Pros: discounted lunches
Cons: no break until after your shift, and rolling silverware
I was a server and you get to work lunch, dinner, double or volume shifts. If you want to make money there you have to work all the time and have almost now time for yourself. The management team was always great and understanding also. For co-workers you would have those people that you loved to see and others that you wouldn't even want to see come – more... through the door. The hardest part of the job was uncertainty one week you would make a lot of money. The next week you would not have enough to cover your finances. The most enjoyable part about the job was meeting people. I would have such awe inspiring conversations with my guests. Whether they were regulars or just passing by. It was always a pleasure meeting people and going above and beyond their expectations. – less

Great Privately owned company.
Certified Trainer/ Key MOD (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCApril 24, 2013
Tripps is a restaurant that has been in business for well over 30 years in the North Carolina, Virginia,and West Virginia. I loved working for the managers as well as the regional director. The food is homemade in the kitchen and the fish always fresh as well as the steaks. Tripps is a seafood/steak restaurant that also has its roots deep in family, – more... fairness, equality, and integrity. It is also a company that has many regulars who come every week and who have come for many years. Its a great family environment. Most of the clientele are elderly who bring their families in frequently. My co-workers always got along very well with each other; there being a sense of commradrie between everybody including the managers. The nights were always a bit chaotic due to games but during the lunch crowd it was a bit more relaxed and nicely paced due to business people on break and the elderly coming in. I would say the harddest part would be the cleaning and not having enough room/tables for everybody during rush. But I thoroughly enjoyed Tripps. Not only did I advance quickly to being MANAGER ON DUTY but I also had the respect of my coworkers. – less

Failing Restaurant
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Winston-salem, ncApril 17, 2013
This is a failing restaurant and a failing company. They are closing locations as apposed to opening them, they grossly under pay you a salary for 80 hours of work each week with no overtime compensation . Your schedule will never be same and you very well could find yourself working until 2am and then asked to be back at 6am. Stay away for any job – more... other than line cook – less

Typical corporate restaurant, above average food
Server (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCJuly 3, 2012
Pros: simple responsibilities and reasonable managers' expectations.
Cons: mediocre financial compensation.
High priority on ideals such as team service.
Fun ways of competing amongst team members, as well as learning new menu items and specials.
With business being scarce at times, and guest check averages remaining fairly low during lunch shifts, it was often difficult to make decent money without working long hours.
