    I worked at OSI Restaurant Partners full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    None for this company. I am greatful to this website though. Warning others is the best I can do right now.

    Cons

    If you want a promotion you had better be male. Our district had 32 manager positions including general managers. 9 female assistant managers, no female general managers. A company fully aware of its district, general managers inappropriate behavior yet did nothing when complaints were filed.

    Sure they have policies written down in a book for legal purposes. However, the general manager was allowed to change stores to a different region(replaced by a male). The district manager retired. The employees harassed were not acknowledged other than termination. Lawsuit with EEOC still pending, OSI still denying. They even drug their feet on verifying my termination so I could receive unemployment benefits.(healthcare,etc.)

    Dont do the 401k and need to withdraw it. This crack squad will sit on your request for months, literally.

    Corporate leadership changed recently, zero improvement. Congratulations to the $5 billion dollar a year monster that runs freely over its employees without having to own up to their actions.

    I no longer eat anywhere affiliated with this company. Person by person I share these truths. These morally bereft people should not have a right to practice business. Maybe someday they will really be punished by the law.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit. All of you executive/corporate representatives. Take the entirety of your last years paychecks and bonuses and pay out to the people you have hurt through your negligence. Then go back to the basics. Work for a living you actually earn. Start at the basement of any of your restaurants and see what its like. Never manage anything ever again. Ever. See how your efforts and 70+ hour work weeks are rewarded. Assuming your replaced with competent personnel you may have a shot at a career yet.

    Please stop insulting people with silly postings about how great you are.

    I worked at OSI Restaurant Partners part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Met new people there's really no other pros to working here I hated working there specially for a year as a high school student

    Cons

    I was over worked as a part time worker and never saw my full profit. They also made bus boys as hostess which messed up the whole restaurant atmosphere "a cut back" but nobody saw the money come in.

    I worked at OSI Restaurant Partners full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hours are balanced with lifestyle. Work space is new but smaller desks and storage. Discounts on meals. Employee benefits. Team building outings. Youthful atmosphere.

    Cons

    Management needs to improve best practices in the workplace especially with all of the changes that are currently going on. Creating a workplace that is safe, productive and pleasant requires a maximization of good practices and a minimization of bad practices.Saying nasty things about coworkers behind their backs undermines staff morale, creates rivalries between coworkers and generally damages the character of a workplace. Even professional and mature employees often have problems with other people, but they are aware enough to keep their destructive comments to themselves. Constructive criticism is sometimes needed, but should be presented in a constructive way to the person involved, not to someone else as a form of gossip. In addition, accounting services have been outsourced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to take a refresher course in best and worst practices in the workplace. My feelings on outsourcing-It looks bad. Sprint and T-Mobile are prime examples of companies that look bad because of their decision to outsource.

    Pros

    During season the money can be pretty good. Not as great as it was before the recession but if you work hard you can make a living.

    Cons

    OSI treats Roy's like the unloved step child. Employeed for over 5 years and never once did OSI make an appearance within the restaurant or host any group events. No interaction with the company as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can only speek for Roy's Orlando. Management needs to not show so much favoritism and stop being so head strung and rude.

    Pros

    The pay is decent and you get a comp card which is very nice. You are eligible for 3 weeks of Paid-Time-Off which is also nice.

    Cons

    This company is soooooooooo unprofessional it is hard to know where to begin. Given its size you would think it would be structured like a blue chip company, but it is a joke. The organization is the most political I have ever worked in and is full of cliques. There is no professional leadership and the credentials of the leadership are more fitting of a fraternity or sorority president than a corporate executive. If you are the fortune 100 or 500 type and want to work with a reputable company I would not work at OSI as you will not progress with the industry. Also, OSI has no HR so there is very little support of its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your business more seriously and get rid of the good old boy network. Quit acting like this large company is some sort of fraternity or sorority--it is ridiculous.

    I have been working at OSI Restaurant Partners

    Pros

    You don't work during the day. They are only open at night (4-5 weekdays) and then open in the afternoons Sat/Sun. People freak out about coming to Outback so people feel they are coming into a restaurant that is special and it's a special occasion. That is its blessing and curse.

    Cons

    It's a corporate environment so they will no matter what side with the guest and give them what they want. We have some very undesirable customers who believe it's fun to come in and act ignorant, run you to death then complain to management so they can get stuff free. Then they leave you NO TIP. Just to shut people up and get them out the door the managers give away the whole restaurant to them and sent them on their way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up for your servers!! Take a stand and don't give in to all of the ridiculous demands of our clientele. Please have some schedule flexibility and don't have your server scrounging around trying to get a shift covered.

    Pros

    They are flexiable with their scheduling.

    Cons

    Most of the management could not run a hot dog stand much less a restaurant. Advancement based on your friendship with management. They are extremely uncoordinated and have no common ground with employees. They continually over look employees for customers and see most employees as expendable. They view most servers as numbers rather then people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try serving tables for a day and see what its really like.
