Great job if you are a people person
customer service (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COApril 21, 2019
On the Border was probably the best experience I had when it came to breaking out of being a high school student to becoming an adult. It was very fast paced and I enjoyed dealing with lots of different guests. I feel as if OTB was a big part in me discovering myself in my early 20's. I ended up making a handful of lifetime friends and family. The staff really took care of each-other. I could really feel the love there. The GM at the time was a stand up, bad mamajama. I'd get to work, turn tables like crazy, laugh with the staff and guests, joke around, and gain lots of regulars. At the end of a shift I typically made pretty good money. The hardest part of the job was being understaffed on management of endless enchiladas. The dreaded endless! I think that anyone just breaking into the work life after high school should consider a job like this. You have short hours, make lots of money, they work with your school schedule, and you get to have new amazing experience while doing it. 10 out of 10... would recommend

Not as people oriented as they lead you to believe
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, ARJuly 20, 2019
With this brand you lack quality of life, they preach about being people oriented but they don't practice what they preach. You work long unappreciated hours as management and hourly team members, and it often goes unnoticed by leadership. The main focus is labor labor labor, minimal staffing leads to poor operations. I've always been taught staff for the business you want, but you can't do that here, you drive sales into the ground because you run with minimal labor to maximize profit.
