I enjoyed working at the purple cow most days. With any job There will be things that you like and you don’t like. The money you make as a server depends a whole lot on your personality. Liking kids and being super friendly even at the most stressful moments is key to being a successful server at the purple cow.

it was very messy working there. management/owners didn't really care about employees well being. the environment was fast-paced for the kind of work it was supposed to be.

Worked 60 hours a week on salary. The rate of pay per hour was well below minimum wage. The owner then wanted to pay some of the salary in cash to avoid paying employee tax to the state.

While some of the serving staff were quite unkind, I never had a problem doing my job. The people I immediately worked with were nice. The management was both effective and laid back.
Cons
Short breaks, lack of discipline

Great place to work with friendly employees, the restaurant stayed busy all the time so there was never a time that I walked into work not knowing I was going to be able to leave with lots of money! Management was very flexible and wonderful to work around!

I enjoyed my coworkers and one of the managers. The reason I left was because of the new co-owner and the new GM they hired. They made the job miserable and no longer a fun work place. They didn't care abut working around my school schedule.

This is a friendly, energetic, fast paced workplace. You are always on edge but laughing always with your amazing coworkers. There is never a dull moment. The managers are your bosses but also your friends.
