Bad Managment
Team Member (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 11, 2018
The managers don't like when you come in with previous work experience. They take it as a threat. I was told I came in too cocky but I came in willing to learn. I cant help I already knew most of what they showed me!
Pros
Loved the team I worked with!
Cons
Have no experience or you will make enemies

Fun environment while very demanding
Team Member (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 21, 2015
Fun, great place to work with great management but like many food service hospitality services/industry, there is a big turnaround in employees. Work hours became very demanding and was typical to get overtime because of employees having no-shows. Management is great though because they were able to adjust timely and professionally with various work scenarios.
Pros
Easy to move up the chain in management and lots of flexability
Cons
High turnaround in employees and few management squabbles
