Fun place to work, but at a price.

Overall it can be a fun fast paced work environment, and the potential is there (for tipped employees) to make very good money. However, the lack of professionalism by some members of upper and middle management can make it very difficult for you if you are not in the "clique" or quite frankly, if they don't like you. Nepotism and favoritism is on full display, and seniority or good work performance almost always will get you nothing. Certain members of management (not all) gossip and discuss personal things about employees not only with other management but with their subordinates as well. The majority of employees are part time and cannot work more than 28 hours a week, so picking up extra shifts is difficult (unless you are a part of the aforementioned clique) HR does quite a bit for employee recognition, and they do things to make you feel appreciated for your hard work. The president is very approachable and easy to talk to, as well as most members of upper management. If you are willing to enter an environment that can only be described as a high school full of adults, and won't be let down by promises not kept, then you can make a good living in most of the tipped positions (dealer, server, etc.) Hourly pay for all positions (tipped or not) is the bare minimum. My best advice is to go to work, keep your head down, do your job and go home.
