Server (Current Employee), Houston, TX – September 30, 2013
A typical day would include maintenance of facility and ensuring the highest level of service is being provided. I have learned to think on a fast paced level and to react quickly in order to resolve issues. The management and sever team at Texas Land and cattle does an excellent job facilitating guests needs and ensuring a high quality environment. The – more... hardest part of the job may include the long hours, but this is also a benefit because returning guests will recognize your presence and hard work. The most enjoyable part of the job is the opportunity to interact with such a spectrum of people types and personalities on a daily basis, and to recognize myself for all that I have contributed towards the company. – less
Server (Current Employee), Irving, TX – August 26, 2013
Pros: 50 percent off food.
Cons: short shifts
Your typical day was short, but you work many shifts and many days a week. Overall the place and people there were outstanding, but the restaurant business was not for me. Management always pushed you to do your best, and the other servers were awesome team mates. Hardest part of the job was the fact that lunches, or dinners were short you often had – more... to do doubles through out the week just to meet ends meet. – less
Server/Hostess (Former Employee), Charlotte, NC – June 28, 2013
Pros: learning fine dining experience
Cons: not much room for growth.
This place was a very nice place to work. everyone was very close to each other, which made for a very comfortable work place. I learned a lot about the food industry and was able to put a lot of what I learned in school to the test and apply it to every day life.
Managers treat you like a child rather than an adult, regularly fail to honor availability when creating schedules (posted at a different time each week, sometimes just 12 hours before you're first shift on the new schedule), very understaffed so everyone is overworked, no room for advancement *at all*, focus is only on strict adherence to corporate – more... slogans and constant new procedures at the expense of the employees and quality of customer service. – less

Waitress (Former Employee), Lubbock, TX – October 20, 2012
Pros: discounted lunches, great people, earning a respect for waiters.
Cons: dealing with rude people.
A typical day would be coming in early to open and get everything ready and prepped in the kitchen for the rest of the waiters. Take people's orders and serve their food.
I learned about steaks and what all it really takes to run a restaurant.
The management was great, very friendly and helpful.
My co-workers were great as well, everyone got along – more... and helped out when needed.
The hardest part of my job would be dealing with those people that complain to try and get meals for free when there would be nothing wrong with the service. Also, getting a terrible tip even when there were no complaints and my service was perfect.
The most enjoyable would be the people I worked with, getting the experience and being able to enjoy their food on my lunch breaks. – less
Server (Former Employee), Bedford, TX – October 2, 2012
I really enjoyed working for this company. There were days that it didn't even seem like work really. I made pretty good money and the hours were pretty flexible. The only issue I had was with one of the managers.
