Job Work/Life Balance
Low work life balance
Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 15, 2018
Didn't have much time for any social life and never felt very friendly with the other managers though I'm sure that varies from store to store. If you're willing to stick it out for a few years the company will do enough to keep you.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Your feedback is truly appreciated and helps us make Lettuce Entertain You a great place to work. Thanks again.

Used to be great but new GM is horrible
Server/Bartender (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – April 30, 2018
Used to love going to work at Joe's stone crab but new GM is horrible. Made racist comments and heavy favoritism. Seating is not fair and don't expect to change it because they will try and fire you just for saying something about it. Management turn over is high since the new GM. The tips are good but the stress is too much.
Half off lunch. Tips are good
Horrible GM, favoritism, They will fire you for no reason

Fast Paced Upscale Dining
Sous Chef (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 21, 2018
I loved working at LEYE. I matured not only in a culinary aspect, but learned the business aspects of running a restaurant.
LEYE management style made for a great work environment; cultivating culinary interests in its employees, and promoting creativity from any kitchen employees, as well as guidance to provide training on accurate procedures and techniques.
My involvement ranged from daily operations from opening, ordering, scheduling, menu development, expediting service, and closing services.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – January 19, 2018
It starts off as a great job, but at El Segundo sol, and stripburger is not the place to be at. The managers have no respect for the hostess or the servers. They care so more about the customers than the actual team. If you can't handle the work they wouldn't hestitate to knock you down. They always bring bad news, and when they are stressed out. Expect their anger and stress to be put on you.
MANAGER (Current Employee) – Wheeling, IL – October 11, 2017
Customer base at my restaurant extremely unpleasant. The work life balance is also extremely difficult. I close 5 nights a week when I was hired I was told Id be the opening manager, so its tough with a young child.
If you are going to work in the service industry, work for Lettuce Entertain You
Server/Barista/Cashier/Host (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 10, 2017
Internal staff is top notch and company does a decent job at making sure their employees are taken care of. That said, if you'd like to move up within the company, make sure you are taking your own initiative.
Food Server Joes Seafood Prime Steak & Stone Crab (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – June 6, 2017
Held a position for a few months shy of 10 years and had the number two spot for most shifts worked. Time off was usually a given but not to be abused. Wine programs, classes and incentives were offered and if you wanted to try something it was encouraged to inquire about. High volume, fast paced environment and expect to stay longer than anticipated on some evenings.
Barista, Cashier, Host (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 5, 2017
I worked at Foodlife and I fell in love with working there because there's workers who are dedicated and love what they do, but the management is what plummets the job. The management loves to praise and take the customer's side than their own team.
Office Assistant/Cashier (Former Employee) – 835 N. Michigan Ave – April 25, 2017
Lettuce is a great company to a certain extent. My place of work was Foodlife. Foodlife was a great place for all walks of life until they changed the division. I sometimes run into guest to this day that have totally stopped patronizing the place. How I do miss the company and all the wonderful holiday parties and discounts, in the end the management turn out to be an awful team.
Great discounts, opportunities for growth, food and parties.
