(Little Rock locations only)
We gave our tipped Damgooders (Drivers, Servers, Bartenders) a big raise.
Then, we split all the tips among all hourly Damgooders based on a fancy
Tip pool level system. The math is a little complicated, but the results are simple.
The most skilled and experienced people get the most tips.
Trainees start @$13.00 an hour and receive no tips until they have worked for 6 weeks or reach level 10, whichever comes first.
Once training is complete, your rate changes to $11/hour.
+ A share of the Weekly Credit Card Tip Pool based on their Pool Level.
+ An equal share of Cash Tips no matter what Level, every day.
As of 10/27/21 Each Level is worth an average of $0.391/hour
+ Cash tip average $.70/hour. =
Level 10 ~ $15.62 per hour
Level 15 ~ $17.36 per hour
Level 20 ~ $19.53 per hour
+ Delivery Drivers earn an additional $.54/per mile while Delivering.
Skill Levels are awarded by way of a Salaried Manager vote.

Once you earn a Skill Level, it is calculated into your share of the tips no matter what position you work throughout the week. You must be willing to perform any skill you have earned at any time during a given shift. i.e. If you are scheduled to drive, but we are short in the kitchen, you will have to cook.
Damgooders also earn an additional Experience Level every time they reach the following milestones for total hours worked for the company.
25 Hours, 50 Hours, 100 Hours, 250 Hours, 500 Hours, 1000 Hours, 2500 Hours, 5000 Hours, 10000 Hours, 25000 Hours.
Transparency is a core principal of the system.
A detailed breakdown for each Damgooder is provided after the end of the week.
Every Damgooder’s Level Breakdown is posted next to the weekly schedule for all to see.
