fun environment with great management
The managers treated employees with respect and actually care about their employees. I was a food runner so I did not make good money. I only made a small percentage of tipouts. Other than that it's a fun environment to work in

Empty promises
This job is amazing because of your coworkers and the people that come in, but when it comes to management and trying to move up, it's not so great. When you try to get noticed and you have a limited schedule it just doesn't work. Maybe it will change who knows.

It was a fun and productive work environment.
Could be more opportunity advancement. There may be months that money is not made. Give the employees ways to make a income when no income has been made for the day.
Pros
Meeting new people and creating new relationships.
Cons
Not a guarantee that money will be made.

Training was invaluable
The training and support I received for my management position were phenomenal from the corporate level but restaurant GM in this particular location was inexperienced and did not hold employees to a high standard of work. There was a lack of pride I saw from coworkers that affected the company culture.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
inexperienced staff

More than your average sports bar
Really good atmosphere for a variety of scenarios. Game watching, dinner with family, private events - they have a great mix of areas that will make you feel that you get your money's worth regardless of the occasion that you visit!

Fast paced and ability to move up
As someone that was very interested in working in food service this company gave me a chance and allowed me to work my way up from just a host all the way up to a trainer in the kitchen this is a great company and if anyone who is interested in food service get the opportunity to work here I would say take it.

Fun place to work at, horrible management.
The job itself was not bad and I loved working on a team and the structure behind everything that made working on the team easy and great. The main problem was management. It was a brand new restaurant and the manager's weren't experienced enough to run the restaurant efficiently.

Disorganized
The management is unsure of what they are doing which leads to high turnover and dissatisfied employees. Work long hours for very little pay and no recognition for the work you do.

Enjoyable work atmosphere
I liked working at Blackfinn. Team work was strongly encouraged. Management was extremely helpful in anything they could do. Front of house staff was cross trained in case positions needed to be filled at last minute.

Great, fun place to work. If you put the time in you will make lots of money here.
I loved working with all the people here. Everyone is very nice and always willing to lend a helping hand.

There is a huge menu to learn but again the team is very nice and helpful with everything. The managers hold classes to help everyone learn different part of the menu.

Decent employer for the Hospitality Industry.
Ultimately, Blackfinn is an ambitious concept that sought to compete in an overly saturated market and was unable to set roots in Montgomery where the workforce is low on skills and high on social anxiety.

Growing Company, still needed to work out some hitches
The location I worked for was located in Montgomery Alabama. Blackfinn has an ambitious menu and plan, however, those meta concepts are maddeningly difficult to execute. The labor pool in Montgomery Alabama was not capable of pulling the concept off.
Pros
Great aesthetic, Huge selection
Cons
New company, lacks experience
