Food Prep, Dish Washer (Former Employee), Tucson, AZJune 15, 2015
Pros: Free 1 meal per Work day
Cons: short break, lots of work
Working at Yard House i always had something to do working 3 different work positions Prep cook, dishwasher and a roller. The people who worked there and management always had positive attitudes and were fun to work with, though co workers could not always finish their daily quota on food production always others had to finish what they started. From working here I learned about many new techniques for food productivity like cutting chicken and making large quantities of many different foods keeping things sanitary and the whole kitchen clean from trash and food as well as making sure the dish room was never falling behind.

Manager (Former Employee), BostonMay 25, 2015
Pros: Communication and accountability
Cons: Long hours
Phenomenal levels of communication and accountability, driven from the highest level of ownership and management, right down to the hourly employees. You know where you stand and you are given goals which are measured and achievable.
Equipment and facilities are always in excellent condition, product is on hand, and there is capable training to show you how to put it into use.
Overall, a great experience if you are lucky enough to join the team. Company will go nowhere but up and forward.

Fast paced and long shifts, but completely worth it.
Server (Former Employee), Orlando, FLMay 1, 2015
I worked for Yard House, which is a Darden concept, for a year and it was the most rewarding restaurant job I've had yet. The shifts tend to run eight to nine hours but because of the volume and pricing you make a good wage each shift.

While working with this company, I learned to perform with skill and accuracy in high volume environments, often under pressure due to the fast paced nature of the job.

Trainer/Bartender/Server (Current Employee), Newport Beach, CAMarch 26, 2015
Pros: Fun and positive environment
Cons: poor healthcare coverage
If you are into craft beer and cocktails, great food, and a sports affiliated environment this is the place to work. I have been with the company for 5 years while I finished my college degree. Managers have always been flexible working with my school schedule. I enjoy the customer and staff relations. This is a great place to work since I love sports.

current team member (Former Employee), Yonkers, NYMarch 14, 2015
A typical day at Yard House consists of my coworkers and I making sure we are providing a comfortable and satisfying atmosphere for our customers as well as accurately taking their orders and delivering their food to them. I learned how to better by people skills, work as a team member, and gaining more experience with group work. It is all enjoyable to me because it is all good experience.

Line-Cook (Former Employee), Temecula, CAMarch 2, 2015
This place is meant for people with some experience in the kitchen. Yard House serves high quality food and is constantly busy (depending the location). Unlike most other restaurants, Yard House makes almost everything in-house, including soups, sauces, dressings and much more. Highly recommend this place to work, but must be ready to learn and accept the fast paced environment.

Yard House has a positive work environment with strong team mates.
Server (Current Employee), Las VegasFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: we are provided lunch breaks during our shift if we so desire.
Cons: no medical coverage for servers working less than 40 hours
A company can only be as good as the people who represent it, and I am impressed with the management team at Yard House. They are true team mates who don't mind rolling up their sleeves when needed. They provide a strong support system and are always there for us to lend a helping hand, whether its busing tables, seating guests, picking up tables for weeded servers, or getting behind the bar for those busy nights, they are high in ethical practice and positive attitude.

Great Job
Server/Waiter (Former Employee), Denver, COJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: awesome happy hour, christmas "bonus", always make money
Cons: darden owns it
This place was an amazing concept on how food and beverage would be presented to guests. The variety of beer, spirits, wine, and food that complimented it were amazing to be apart of. Before it was bought out by Darden, this place was awesome to work at, enjoyable, great co-workers, and management. After is a different story. There was inconsistency with food, management, other things which is why I decided to leave.

However, my time there was not taken for granted. I enjoyed the people I worked with and learned a great deal about beer and food.

High energy environment with amazing co-workers
Server (Current Employee), Tucson, AZDecember 17, 2014
Pros: flexible work hours
Cons: too many servers.
Yard House is a fast paced and high energy environment which requires extensive team work. Never have I worked for a company where team work has been so crucial to the overall success of not only myself, but everyone around me. Management works very long hours and very hard, a true testament to their continued success which stems from their hard work. The hardest part of the job is relying on tips and not having a conssitent pay check. That aside though, I love interacting and meeting new people. Something I plan on continuing to do throughout my career.
