Typical chain restaurant gig
If you've worked in one chain restaurant, you've worked in them all. Toss are limited by clientele and section assignments. But it's a good job to get your feet wet in the industry.

Poor leadership, Poor Management
Great Kitchen/BOH but poor team work in FOH, no leadership no focus on customer service Management has no clue how to solve or resolve problems. If you get busy good luck because managers will watch you crash and burn. Kitchen guys are the stars.

Fun place to work
Good tips when business was steady. Business slowed due to new management. A great way to get your foot in the door if you are looking to work in the Restaurant industry

Great first time job!
On the border is a great work environment to work in, especially if it's your first job. You learn to be bold and confident, as well as being respectful and have table manners with customers. I've learned while working there, you get to meet many new faces and personalities which expand your social life. the hardest part of the job is when the lunch/dinner rush kicks in and you have a big section but you learn to get better with overcoming those obstacles. the greatest part is when you receive compliments for your hard work and dedication. highly recommend for 1st time workers.

Love this place
Love serving people. It's not steady pay cause you work for tips, but if you put in the time and effort towards your tables you can get out what you put in. Management is awesome and always has been. It's a fun environment. I kept this job on top of my full time job just for extra cash and if I wanted to get my mind off my other job for a little. I would recommend this job to anyone, high schoolers and college kids especially. The managers work with any schedule.
Pros
discounts on food
Cons
no insurance or benefits if you're a server

Great atmosphere and management. Opportunities to move from hostess to server to bartender. Training available as well as quarterly reports on employees. Awesome culture that loves to celebrate celebratory holidays.

Fast-paced and Friendly
I have worked there for almost three years at this point. The staff and managers are friendly, the money is good on most days, tipping all depends on how busy it is and how your service is.

Average
It was an average job, as average as I expected. However the majority of the people I meet there were far from average. Outside of 2 managers it was indeed an exceptional place to work with great regulars.

Fun workplace with great staff
I've learned a lot about quality customer service and working as a team. I grew as a person and gained not only experience but a family, and I wouldn't change that for the world. We offer quality food but what puts us over the edge is our great customer service.

I had a good experience.
I have personal reasons for having to leave OTB. They are a fantastic company to work for. I, personally must be closer to my home, hence transportation issues and only be8ng able to work specific hours.

Fun and fast work environment
Opening the restaurant you would do some food prep and begin the morning process of getting ready to open. You are responsible for refilling ice in the drink machines, rolling silverware, making sure your server areas are stocked with all necessities.Closing the restaurant you would make sure all closed sections had completed there closing work, by checking after the other servers, you would sweep your section among many other things. Managers were very easy to get along with and were always very helpful.

Any serving job is what you make it
Made a lot of money as a server and bartender, worked hard, learned where I could, and moved up accordingly. Job is what you make it management was garbage where I worked.
