Crew Member• Hostess (Former Employee) – Greenfield, MA – October 25, 2018
The best part about working at the 99 was the free food during the paid training. LoL! just kidding it was an amazing atmosphere and you could tell that the people that worked there actually cared about what was going on not only with the business of things but about the customers.
Food Server & Hostess (Former Employee) – Stoneham, MA – October 23, 2018
At the 99 I mostly worked nights. It was somewhat of a competitive culture where everyone wants the better sections and the bigger tables. We only make money if the people tip us. Larger parties, larger bills, hopefully, more money. Here, I learned a lot on cleanliness and organization. Sometimes, the long hours and back-to-back days, nights, and doubles can wear on your body. Especially your feet. The customers were the best part of the job. Getting to talk to all different people all the time. Some that came in all the time and some that had never been in before. Other times, when people had too much to drink, it could be difficult to figure out when and how to shut them off without angering them too much.
Money could sometimes be great
Short breaks, if any. Never knew how much you would make

management calls people names behind their backs, talks to other employees about them, retaliates against you by taking away shifts, speaks in public with employees about things that should be addressed behind closed doors. Some type of harassment either to me or others on every shift, Unacceptable.

The job itself wasn't bad (albeit a bit gross sometimes), but the pay could have been higher and the management was terribly rude and never took my disability seriously. The general manager repeatedly tried to cut my breaks short even after I mentioned that the law required him to allow me longer breaks, whether or not I had a disability. Unbelievable.
Bartender/Server (Former Employee) – Cromwell, CT – August 30, 2018
I worked for this company for over 11 years. I'm grateful for their flexibility and room to grow within the company. I do wish that they acknowledged staff more for their efforts and the company as a whole with vacation time for those who worked there for over so many years even though only around 20 hours. Yet, I would highly recommend this facility to work.
Everyone is all about themselves at 99. From the manager down to the crew, your there to work and thats it. Just remember that. Don't request off days because your boss always forgets the days you want off!!
I love the people in the area and my coworkers make everything easy and are a pleasure to work with

I have enjoyed working the time I have been at the 99. My coworkers are nice and we all get along. Management also jokes around with us making it a fun work environment. As for the pay; it depends on your personality as a server!
