High paced fast work environment

A day at work you will quickly realize you’re being over worked . Everyshift you’re doing more than you are paid to do . Managers and boss pick favorites and you’ll definitely feel it and know it


No pros


Unpaid breaks, employees and managers hours

Good place to work

Worked here during year of 2022. Good money, good management. Wasn't a fan of the owner but the people there made it worth it. Had to move and commute was too far or else I'd still be there.

Horrible managed and very unclean

Management didn't care about anything. Place was dirty especially behind the bar and where they cooked there food at. I used to literally clean dead roaches out of the ice bin and clean refill ice.




A lot

Fun environment Bad management

It was a cool place to work with the my co workers but the management didn't know how to run a store you can tell they were all new we would have a new manager every month because they would always quit because of the owners. LoL

It was stressful for no good reason, and I wouldn't go back

What is the best part of working at the company?Hi volume for dinner and quick turnaround What is the most stressful part about working at the company?The Owner/GM being an unstable micromanager that doesn't keep his word, or even remember what he promised What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Zèro care for what you have going on on life, and don't let them know you have a 2nd job b/c they will slash your hours and treat you like a second-class employee What is a typical day like for you at the company?There wasn't a typical day. Due to management, you never know what to expect.

I had the pleasure working at Hook & Reel Odessa, and my experience was all positive. I had great management who worked with me, lifted me up when needed and made sure to let us know we were appreciated. The great tips didn’t hurt either!
