Great co-workers, poor management
Server (Current Employee) – Saginaw, MI – July 13, 2018
I have been at Famous Dave's for years now. It's a promote within type business, which I find is fair. Lately the (new) manager (who I feel does a poor job) is hiring off the streets, not giving the hosts/take-out an opportunity to be promoted. We are very short staffed, and once you become a server, there will be no more promotions. They have had the same five bartenders, they get paid more hourly and they don't tip-out hosts or expos. They keep everything they make. Servers and bartenders use the expos but servers are the only one's who tip the expo. The people you work with are good people, people who you make friends with and want to see outside of work. Management is poor overall, there is no backbone or authority when something is done incorrectly.
No breaks, short staffed (always working) poor management
