productive and positive place to work
Hostess (Current Employee) –  Asheville, NCAugust 9, 2018
The management here is pretty good. They are very flexible with your schedule and do their best to give you time off if you ask for it. I would say the only downside to working here is the short shifts.
Pros
family meals occasionally, breaks, good hours

Head Bartender (Former Employee) –  Greenville, SCJune 22, 2018
Tupelo honey was a fantastic place to work. Managers are always willing to help you to improve and grow. I would definitely suggest it as a great job for anyone willing to start in the service industry.

Not the best place to work
Line Cook (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJune 20, 2018
The management sucks. Nobody is on the same page and it is very unorganized. Stuff is never stocked up and we end up running out of things every single day. Tupelo causes unnecessary stress.
Pros
Long breaks, free food
Cons
Poor management, a lot of drama

Poor Management
Server (Former Employee) –  TennesseeApril 14, 2018
Racist workplace with poor management and leadership. Long hours with average pay. Low employee morale. Overpriced food with expensive atmosphere. Management drinking on the job and substance abuse abound.

They don't care about you.
Barback/Busser (Former Employee) –  CharlotteMarch 30, 2018
Worked my heart out at this place. I ended up training my replacement without knowing it, and they fired me for the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of. Please dont waste your time working here, no matter how hard I tried they just did not care.
Pros
Good friends, occasional food
Cons
Poor management, favoritism

Don’t work here
Server (Former Employee) –  Frisco, TXMarch 15, 2018
Extremely POOR management!!!! Beware of working here. Don’t let the fair wage they offer fool you. Managers are held to absolutely no standards and are allowed to do what they want when they want, from drinking on the job and just being down right petty. Managers are bickering and talking about each other all the time. Which is very unprofessional. It’s sad because the concept is great but when you have people in place who have no leadership skills and cannot execute a vision it gets lost behind poor leadership.
Pros
Nothing when compared to what you have to deal with

Great Staff, Good Food
SERVER (Former Employee) –  Johnson City, TNFebruary 28, 2018
The employees are great and have a very family vibe. The management is lacking but I have dealt with worse. The food is fantastic but a little pricey and you hear about it a lot from customers. Not much interaction with corporate unless something goes wrong. Very hands off company.

It was nice
Hostess (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCFebruary 22, 2018
Overall it was great. Like one big happy family, until you do something the managers don't like then they will talk about you behind your back. They can be very two-faced. It is a bit strict now but it wasn't years ago.

Great Company
Key Hourly Manager (Former Employee) –  Franklin, TNDecember 14, 2017
Great company to work for. Culture is great and the people are even better. They strive to ensure great guest satisfaction. They're biggest downfall is they're ever changing menu. It changes a lot. Make being a server a bit hard when you are trying to sell but have to constantly learn new items. Bar program is outstanding with a huge focus on craft beer. Overall a great place.

If you're a positive, hard-working individual, this is the place for you. Flexible scheduling, benefits, discounts, and such a great team. An energetic hub right in downtown.

Decent Job, unfortunate relocation
Back Server/Hostess (Current Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VADecember 11, 2017
Sundays are the busiest with Sunday brunch. After it calms down there is not much work to be done. As a back server some of the servers would take advantage and have you complete their work. Management was decent and when you first come in it is very welcoming. But like any job their can be a little drama depending on the people who are there.

Productive and comforting workplace
Service Captain/ Bartender (Current Employee) –  Johnson City, TNDecember 9, 2017
Tupelo is a Southern Food comforting style of restaurant and atmosphere. Southern hospitality is something the company really focuses on. They not only go out of their way to take care of guests but also their employees.

Sous Chef (Current Employee) –  VirginiaNovember 8, 2017
It is a great place to work. Always gives u something new to strive for. Menu changes are always happening so you are not working with the same materiels After 4 months. Great for an inventive chef to learn his craft.

Tupelo Money
General Manager (Former Employee) –  TNOctober 17, 2017
Competitive compensation coupled with great expectations. One should plan to forfeit any idea of home life or days off should you end up in one of the slow market stores. The executive level is first rate in regards to holding its employees to account. Just don't expect any support for the lofty demands.
Pros
competitive compensation
Cons
concept has no direction
