Overall it's a great place to work at everyone is like a small little work family we all care and respect each other. It's a drama free environment. We all try out best and work at a fast pace to satisfy all customers needs.

By far my favorite job I've ever held. If they had one close to where I live I'd have never left. They are all about there employees. They help you to advance up the ladder fast. I highly recommend working for city bbq!

It was a nice company to work for and promoted friendliness both toward customers and to your fellow coworker. Never felt like there was a large gap between management and the employees, the higher levels were always very accessible.
I enjoyed working here until it became very popular. Even though sales increased by a factor 4 the management would not hire more staff to help out. I was basically working 2 positions but only getting paid for one.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Centerville, OH – April 23, 2018
While the work itself was at times very hectic and demanding, working here was a fun learning experience that I value. Being my first job, this is where I honed the base of my work ethic and learned a lot about how a business is operated on a daily basis. Here I became a certified trainer and trained many individuals who came through that location. Unfortunately the pay was not enough for me to sustain rent, bills, and other responsibilities at the time but my situation was unique so I'm sure that wouldn't be the case for any who are seeking employment at this facility.

This is a typical part time job. Fun environment to work in but don't expect to leave with out the smokey scent of barbecue clinging to your clothes. closing here takes about 3 hours, thats why I quit.
Shift Manager (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 8, 2018
Overall, I love this company. Unfortunately, the larger they get the more difficult it becomes to move up because they tend to hire from the outside lately. Because of this we are getting managers who are less dedicated to the culture than before. But in the long run everything is great there. I, myself, have had lots of opportunities in the years with the company and obviously enjoy it since I've stayed for more than 6 years so I would highly recommend this company as a whole. It is fun, fast paced but easy to enjoy, you get free food, there's lots of freedom, and the connections you make with guests, regulars and coworkers are awesome. Also as a full-time employee you get benefits- health, life, visual, dental insurance and paid vacation.
free food, fun and fast paced while not being cut-throat, great connections, if full-time you get benefits
Cashier (Current Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – October 1, 2017
Only family is management and everything is rigged for them. Example being they take 6-7 week vacations out of the year and they get all the hours. Also everything is fit to their schedule for when they wanna work.
CASHIER (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – September 24, 2017
the only good thing about this place is you can move up into management pretty easily and quickly for good pay. They had a lot of drama there, the management sucked at communication and dealing with conflicts and very lazy.
Manager (Former Employee) – Findlay, OH – September 20, 2017
City Barbeque was a great place to work and a great company to work for. I worked for one of the few franchises, so my experience was somewhat unique. I respected and appreciated the vision and core values of the company and am confident that the company will grow and thrive in the coming years.
Marketing (Former Employee) – United States – August 23, 2017
The people themselves are wonderful workers and we all really look out for each other. My main concerns are lack of room for advancement as well as lack of diversity of gender/age/race/etc. in upper management.
