Bartender, Cashier, Driver, Server (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – June 10, 2018
The bad news: it's still the service industry. So it can still be rough at times. But as far as food service goes, this place is top notch and pays well. And the food is great! It goes through some strange management choices (occasional power-trippers), but I suppose that's true of any restaurant. Hard to advance, but it can be done. Even drivers get paid great. Very much enjoyed my 2+ years here.
Benefits for full-time, food discounts, fantastic food, cool atmosphere
Only certain personality types promoted to bar and not always the best candidates, strange experience trying to advance
While working there was fun, it was tough to manage school and working weird hours that the managers decided for me.

Balanced school and work at the same time but the managers were not flexible with schedules and decided shifts for me and failed to inform me that i was coming in all the time. good place and fun work experience but it is hard working with people who refuse to work with you.

Most managers there are very relaxed and nice. They are usually understanding and help you out when you need it. There is only one manager inpaticular that is more strict and less forgiving but over all there is good management.
I have enjoyed working at Sushi Zushi, the atmosphere is awesome and my guests and coworkers are great.
Server/Waiter (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 28, 2015
During my time here at Sushi Zushi I have grown to love so many things about it. The people I work with, my guests and of course the amount of money I have made. Management is great aside from a few acceptions. I highly enjoy the fast pace lunch and dinner rushes and the hustle and bustle of the holiday times. The hardest part though is the slow times like right now. I have made lots of great friends there but of course like all work places, I am there simply to work hard and achieve the highest possible profit from my guests.
walking out with money everyday, friendly coworkers and guests
no healthcare benefits for servers or any front of the house employees
Good food, sometimes power-tripping managers but not all of them. Get paid!! Pays better than most other service industry jobs. Even drivers get paid well and they have their own cars, so the company buys gas etc.
Server (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – May 16, 2018
This job was very fast paced. The management at the uptown location is very good. The overall working environment is very relaxed, but like all workplaces, there can be issues between coworkers in terms of communication.
Cash tips everyday
No consistency of pay. Make as low as $5 a day and up to $100+
host, busser and at cashier (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – January 31, 2018
i would usually come in at 4pm, and work as both host and busser, it would be pretty easy from 4-6 but from 7-10 I would constantly be bussing and seating customers, as well as helping servers and dish washers. I was fond of all my coworkers, but the rush would make a a very stressful environment, and put many of the employees in bad moods behind the scenes, which contributed to my departure. I liked the establishment and employees, but not many of them seemed to be happy, which made the place a drag at times.

Working at Sushi Sushi was a great experience. At the time, it was exactly what i needed to grow as a person as well as professionally. While it has its hiccups, like all restaurants, it is professional and well managed all the way around.
Sushi Chef (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX 78258 – October 18, 2017
I had plenty of experience when working there, but I was hired on as one of the lower pay individuals. There was a lack of team work and coworkers always tried to take advantage of the people that tried to get the job done to be prepared. Stressful work environment, management loads you with more work if you work quicker than others, and give you no sort of kudos for cooperating with the extracurricular work.
Server (Former Employee) – Spokane, WA – January 14, 2018
The business was so slow, even on Fridays and Saturdays. This stressed out the owner who in turn stressed out the manager who took his anger out on his employees. They also take FIFTY PERCENT OF YOUR TIPS.
Very informative and opens the door to a new culture of cooking
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – June 3, 2017
I have gained a lot of useful knowledge for my days with Sushi Zushi. I look forward to using this knowledge in the future. I only wish there was a more work- life balance. On days off managers are still required to follow up on emails, place orders and answer text form store. There is not a good balance as far as work loads with management team, The more experienced managers get tasked with about 60% of the total work load.
Management is eligible for a week vacation after one year with the company.
Management is only allotted $150 to eat or use on days off per month
