It’s not a bad company, the people they hire are incompetent for the most part and the managers aren’t any better.
Hostess (Current Employee) –  Garden Grove, CAMarch 5, 2018
Overall it’s an okay environment. The company is run poorly and my coworkers do little to nothing to help figuring things out. Everyone does their own job and refuses to work as a team to fix problems.
Pros
nope
Cons

Hostess/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Corpus Christi, TX 78401February 27, 2018
Staying busy, interacting without coworkers and customers. Being helpful in every way possible. Restock shirts and other items for sale. Bus tables for the next party to be sat. At the end of the shift, do sidework such as sweeping, checking restrooms, restock, etc.

Certified Trainer/Produce Manager (Former Employee) –  Sanford, FLFebruary 25, 2018
Joes Crab Shack was fun to work at as just a college or out of high school job. It is not surprising to learn that they ended up filing for bankruptcy

Upbeat and "fun" environment
Server (Former Employee) –  Westbury, NYJanuary 31, 2018
FOH was fun and happy, BOH was where all of the business was taken care of so it was (obviously) much more serious and intense. Multiple managers, attitudes varied. Fair hours.

Great place to work and great Culture. Loved working alongside my Joe's family. But because of upper mismanagement, the company was not able to advance.

Disgusting
Bartender/Bar manager (Former Employee) –  Riverhead, NY 11901January 19, 2018
Based on the fact that the Riverhead location is no longer open that should explain just how horrible the place was. I am surprised it took as long as it did for that location to close.
Pros
Nothing.
Cons
Everything

Poor Management
Server/Waiter (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYJanuary 19, 2018
The management staff at this location is more worried about socializing with staff. Rather than taking care of the building or the guests that come to eat there. The General Manager avoids most issues concerning the staff. This creates chaos and hostile work environment.

Line Cook (Current Employee) –  South Plainfield, NJJanuary 17, 2018
Not really a bad place to work, its just poor management and a lot of favoritism. There's also lack of products and utensils. Also lack of respect between employee and management.
