      13 Jan 2021 - FOH Supervisor in Sandusky, OH

      Pros

      I was paid fairly well - $11.50/hr my first year, then $14 my second. It seemed to me that there was a lot of room for growth within the company. I worked at the Perkins location and loved my managers and fellow employees there.

      Cons

      The housing is terrible, and I moved out because I couldn't stand it my second year. Black mold on the walls of shower and in the rooms. Be prepared to either only eat microwavable food, or to be paying for meals at the bistro every day!
