Yes they do.
Yes and yes
Managers get tip out based on how many hours they work, sometimes if its necessary management can pick up a few tables to help out but they rarely take the tips from it.
I personally don't think managers get the tip out. I believe they are salary based. Our manager would manage part-time and drive part-time for the tip option.. but that wasn't my field, or business so I could be incorrect.
Not at my location no, I've seen managers fill in serving shifts when no one else can, but that's the only time I've seen them receive tips.
I think managers get tips when they take on a serving shift, I'm pretty sure they do, as for tip-out, I'm not sure.
Yes Mangers made tips every shift they worked, a percentage would be taken off of each servers tips at the end of the shift.
Yes as long as approved by the owner only.
They are not allowed.
