Hostess/Server (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCDecember 10, 2018
Clean restrooms and take out trash. As well as direct traffic coming in and out. Typically on a work day you get into disputes with the guests due to what we are told to say via management. You let management know but recently with the incoming and out coming of new staff members you don't know who is who.
Pros
the pay of rate, flexibility
Cons
hours per week and new management

Half of the management is bad, the other half is good. Great people there but no flexible hours and too much drama
Server (Current Employee) –  Peachtree City, GANovember 24, 2018
Could be a good place to work if they changed some management and re-evaluated their standards. They’re more worried about reviews and zoisk scores then their employees.

AM Shift Captain (Former Employee) –  North Wales, PANovember 2, 2018
There is truly nothing bad I can say about this company. I've learned quite a bit, as well as taught some fellow employees a thing or two. True enough there are things I wish were done differently, however I believe that is with any company. Smokey Bones is to be respected for its commitment to company policy and hospitality spec.

Fun workplace with great nightlife
Server, Trainer (Former Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VAOctober 22, 2018
Smokey Bones is a great place to work if you need flexible hours and want to make fast money. It is not a steady source of income as some nights and days were slow. The hardest part of this job is maintaining a cool, calm, and collected composure during high pressure times, as you could always be seen by a guest. There was always upbeat music playing, and there was always something that could be done to stay busy.
Pros
discounts
Cons
long hours, late nights, sometimes slow business

Such neglect from corporate towards customers, employees, and the buildings themselves. No regard for longevity, just “investors” making a quick buck.

There’s an energy when you work with happy people and a nice environment. They have dartboards, and a pool table by the bar so it makes for a social advancement in everyone becoming happier altogether. The servers and bartenders all worked so well together as well.

Easy to work for, Training could be better, Some teamwork
Head Server (Former Employee) –  Ronkonkoma, NYOctober 3, 2018
Basic serving job. Ran out of certain food items often. Good communcation between some staff. They hire anyone even without experience. NO training for Hosts/Hostesses, so never an even rotation between tables. It basiclly a free for all. Kitchen would run out of food often, and kitchen was never responsable for messing up orders, they just blamed the servers and that effects your hours. Very casual dresscode (work t-shirt and blue jeans).
Pros
50% off food
Cons
Survey based Schedule/Hours
