Stressful, hostile work environment and very low pay
Bartender/Server/Busser/Runner (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – July 14, 2019
Management shows blatant favoritism to some, mostly the family members they have hired against company "policy", and bully the employees they dont like personally to force them to quit. Our managers create a work environment based on threatening our jobs constantly, assuming we are all lazy, abusive language and tone (calling employees "stupid", for example. Also mocking an employee's weight and sexual orientation in Spanish right in front of her assuming she couldn't understand - she could), always criticizing us but never coaching or positive direction, etc.
At first I was wary about giving the company a bad review based on one store, but realized the company is accountable for management and culture of every store. This store is allowed to operate opposite to the vision and workplace culture outlined by the brand and in the handbook, allowed to pick and choose which policies to follow or enforce, allowed to show favoritism to some and bully others for personal reasons, and so on. This is a much larger and pervasive problem not isolated to one GM, one manager or one store.
If you can, avoid working here. It isnt worth it at all, especially not for the very low wages they pay.
Half off food? Should be free.
Inconsistent enforcement of rules, Favoritism, Very low pay, Hostile environment, Retaliation if you go to HR, Unprofessional management driven by personal opinion of employees, abusive to ones they dislike
