    I worked at Applebee's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It was a great company and great management with great employees, kitchen, front of the house and carside.
    The the company was bought out by another franchise. BOOM! !!!!!

    Cons

    It became microwave haven, rude new management. BESIDES a few! !. No employee was good enough anymore. The higher ups became hateful and rude. Witch made a place where every employee was there from the beginning to lot's of new faces. Dress codes didn't matter. We didn't matter.!!! I felt bad for all those great manager's and the fantastic employees. If you love microwave food and server's that are stressed about loosing their jobs go to the BEE'S.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be FAIR, be nice, TREAT HOW YOU WANT TO BE TREATED. Be a HUMAN. To those great manager's GET OUT! !!
