    I worked at Outback Steakhouse

    Pros

    Instant take home pay with tips. Original proprietor was great we had a very positive and uplifting work environment with trust worthy and helpful management until he was pushed to retire.

    Cons

    New Proprietor was selected due to politics. Became very toxic very fast in less than a year and a half over 90% of employees have quit or been wrongly fired before they could. Company is also more concerned about saving a few bucks then anything else.

    Pros

    nothing at all is good about this place
    \

    Cons

    They tease you with starting in the to-go room with a promise to make it onto the floor and never deliver. In the to-go room tips, which are few, are shared meaning you do not make minimum wage. It is illegal, but they do it anyway.

    Pros

    Sometimes I'd get decent tips. Discount on food was alright. There was not a whole lot of pros to be honest.

    Cons

    Employees were allowed to treat other employees horribly with no interference from management. Management did not support staff and did not act in a professional manner. You are expected to bring your own money to make change for customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new, more professional, management.

    Pros

    They seem to belowering their prices to match their inferior food and service. Obviously can not compete so they are taking the business in a different direction!

    Cons

    Too many
    No breaks or proper pay for employees or managers in some cases.
    Greedy ,Lazy, unskilled managers and partners

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire everyone including yourselves and start over with people that know and understand the casual dining business
