When I was hired, the management team was excellent. Six months before I quit, the team was replaced by some pretty terrible managers. Otherwise, working at Lazy Dog was "okay". It wasn't great, it wasn't bad. Co-workers are what made the job "good" but overall it wasn't fantastic. Company culture is to cater to the customer no matter how awful or obnoxious they are, and to do so by throwing the server under the bus (be prepared!). Tips are about average (i.e. 15-22% in general) but server is responsible for tipping bartenders, food runners, and bussers whether or not the server had to clear their own tables & run their own food, and must also pay taxes on their sales (whether or not they were tipped). "Part-time" is more than 32 hours, but shifts tend to be 4 to 6 hours so that's a plus. Employees also get one half-priced meal per day which is a nice option after a day on your feet.
1/2 price meal per shift, 4-6 hour shifts
Poor management, poor customer culture, large tip-outs per shift, taxed on sales, must provide own uniform
