Greeter/ TakeOut (Former Employee) – Erie, PA – December 14, 2018
Managers are not very involved and are not always aware of what is happening within the employees. There is a lot of drama and employees that do not do there job and make it more difficult for others to do theirs.
Hostess/Server (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – December 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.
Waitress/Server (Former Employee) – Taunton, MA – November 20, 2018
Make sure section is clean and ready for customers Learned organization skills customer service skills Management was great Hardest part of the job was just to keep on task when the restaurant got full
Awesome and exciting culture and environment in each location. Best job ever! I was more than a number, I was a person, and my views and opinions mattered. I was able to contribute to the growth of my company.
AM Shift Captain (Former Employee) – North Wales, PA – November 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.
Bartender (Current Employee) – Tyngsboro, MA – November 2, 2018
I love my job. It has a fun, energetic atmosphere. It is a rather busy restaurant and pays well. I dislike working 4p.m.-2a.m. and would like to have a job that offers me benefits such as health insurance, paid vacation and paid sick time.
Loved it. Great place to work. Flexable hours and scheduling, friendly and fun environment. Great food!! Good place to start learning to begin cooking experience, or further job or culinary experience as well!
Server, Trainer (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – October 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.
The people you work with are great, but not so much the customers.
Greeter (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – October 22, 2018
I enjoyed the people I worked with. It is under new management, and they are great! Although some of the customers were rude, it was still a good environment to work under. Very helpful and overall a good experience.
Bartender and Waitress (Former Employee) – Cranberry Township, PA – October 12, 2018
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.
Discounts on food, able to dine in if not working.
Easy to work for, Training could be better, Some teamwork
Head Server (Former Employee) – Ronkonkoma, NY – October 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).
