Great place to work!

Waitress/Bartender (Former Employee)
Springfield, MA (US)

I worked at Famous Dave's part-time for more than a year

ProsBeing "Famous", working in a great team environment, fun atmosphere. There were multiple contests and incentives for prizes like Bruins and Celtic tickets, gift cards, and cash! Online scheduling for easy shift trading.

ConsMinimum wage for servers, not many full time positions or positions with benefits. As with any restaurant, when its slow.. you don’t make money (but when its good, its GREAT)

Advice to Senior ManagementPut ScheduleFly in all of your restaurants! It’s the best $30 a month you will ever spend!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
