Sweat shop Environment
Bartender/Barback (Former Employee) –  Greenbelt, MDSeptember 8, 2019
Modern day, sweat shop vibes, where the predominant Asian management often talk down to their African American subordinates. Management also favors some employees over others, by providing them with extra work hours and decreasing the hours of employees unflavored. Distribution of work and job duties of employees are not equally bestowed to all staff.
Pros
Discount for employees.

Awful
Bartender (Former Employee) –  Staten Island, NYAugust 4, 2019
The owners at this location can not run the restaurant. They hemorrhage money and blame the staff, beg the staff to take charge in creative aspect of driving customers in, the benefits suck, they change managers every couple months, and it’s just awful. A restaurant is suppose to feel like a family and this place was not at all homey. You felt ever body trying to earn every last cent they could and lie to management because they wanted to go home with a fare wage. I do not recommend working here.

OH and the ceo of the company would come into the shop coke’d out all the time, and he didn’t speak English so he would just harass the workers by showing us off on his FaceTime calls while laughing even though we got no clue what he saying. It was an experience
Pros
30% discount (only to your dish, not whole party) LOL
Cons
No free food ever, poor management, gross conditions, lazy management mentality, poor organizational skills (stocking food and drink for the month per delivery)

My job
Server (Former Employee) –  Lanham, MD 20706December 16, 2016
A day at work would include providing great customer service, being very attentive and being quick on your feet. Smiling and keeping up a very positive attitude.
