I have been working at Applebee's part-time for more than 3 years

ProsGenerally very busy, stays fresh and new (menu updates, remodels, specials), will work with my schedule

ConsThe extreme fast past and busyness can be a lot to handle day in and day out. With high volume, quality can be lost at times: Ticket times, food quality, opportunity to interact with guests

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not make extreme cuts to the floor in the name of numbers. Maintain consistency in upholding standards

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Consweird crowd sometimes. but good experience overall

Advice to Senior Managementi liked management for the most part. had good relationships with some of the management team and felt it was easy to move up the ranks there

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good place to work.

I worked at Applebee's

ProsIt was a fun high energy place to work. They trained the employees very well. Gave you the right equipment to get your job done. They appreciate their employees.

ConsThey expected you to do too much selling at every table. I liked selling the menu but it was too much asking every table to donate to charity. Especially when they were regular customers who came in 3 times a week. It got to be embarrassing.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be all about making the bottom line when it takes your attention away from the customer. Service goes down hill.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
