Pros
  • If you're a server it's short shifts with good money (in 14 reviews)

  • Flexible schedule, when working with a (literally) almost hundred other servers, easy to get a shift covered (in 11 reviews)

Cons
  • Managers are frequently under a lot of stress and tired due to long hours which can affect the whole team (in 10 reviews)

  • It's a LOT of work, but a great food runner makes a much smoother shift (in 4 reviews)

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for! BJ's values their employees above all else. As an Executive Kitchen Manager, I was challenged everyday to perform my best and to expect nothing less from my team.

    Cons

    Limited locations nationwide. Not much else bad I can say about them.

    Advice to Management

    Great benefits, and salary

    Pros

    Worked here for a little over a year and I saw great tips, amazing training, and hiring from within the company. In my time there, two of the long time servers became managers!

    Cons

    It is a typical server job so you do have to deal with THOSE customers sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Don't copy and paste the schedule so much!
