    Is there profit sharing or other type of employee ownership? I hear that all there is so much competition between restaurants due to the boom in restaurant openings over the last few years.

    One of my favorite bars. Their food is nothing fancy, but for basic bar fare it’s tasty and it’s consistent.

    If you’re new in town and have decided that you really want to overpay for a miserable hovel on a steep hill right next door to a high school, then this is the place for you!

      Ugh, meant to post this in a different thread.

        lol was gonna say – if you’re talking shit on red derby you came to the wrong place :p

    Sorry if I’m being overly cynical here, but are the hours set at “roughly 75 hours every 2 weeks” so that they come in just under full time employment and avoid paying benefits? I admittedly don’t know much about the service industry so my cynicism may be misplaced.

    • Anon

      I think you are correct re: benefits.

    • Anon Spock

      I’m guessing they’re too small to fall under the employer mandate. Very few (any I wonder) restaurants have 50 full timers.

      • Anon Spock

        I meant I don’t think they have 50 employees even if everyone working was full time which is rare for a restaurant.

    • lizcolleena

      Probably not. Besides the small business exception noted above, service employees rarely work that many hours. Derby is only open 100-ish hours a week.
