Pros – Shift meal. Decent pay for starting managers.
Cons – The guests are terrible. Expect something for free every time. Mind you that Applebee's are often in Wal Mart parking lots, and attract the same kinds of people. It is the clientele they are shooting for.
If your Area Director doesn't like you, they will find any excuse whatsoever to fire you. It is a terrible atmosphere to work in. Highly stressful. No fun.
Advice to Senior Management – Pay and benefits are the one reason anyone even works for this company. They have a horrible reputation for churning and burning managers.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Cash money every night
Get to meet lots of people. Sometimes beneficial, sometimes not.
Dynamic work environment
Fast paced environment
Cons – Management sucks. They care about nothing but themselves
The money varies.
Favoritism plays a huge role in the politics there.
Advice to Senior Management – Start caring about your employee's. Evaluate them on what they are doing right instead of being rude when they do the first thing wrong.
