    Pros

    Great managerial staff, lots of business, great tips, great teamwork, the food is also great. Lots of upsell items for entrees.

    Cons

    Very short shifts (4-6 hours), frequent recooks on certain steaks, sometimes the back of the house is really clustered and tough to maneuver through

    Advice to Management

    I love my managerial staff because firstly they hired me with little serving experience. They are very helpful and thoughtful and my advice would be for them to continue being so excellent.

  2. Loved Working here!

    Pros

    I loved the family friendly environment and everyone worked really well together. It was a great experience as a first job. Its pretty easy, just seat people and have fun!

    Cons

    It can definitely get stressful at times when there is a wait and angry customers, but you learn to power through those times! You also can get off super late which is no fun and annoying when you have school, so keep that in mind!

  3. Great Staff

    I was a headwaiter at an Outback Steakhouse for three years, and I loved it! It was a great job while I was going to college, and very adaptable to my class schedule.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment, must be willing to work hard at all times.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, especially those who've been with you for many years. This is definitely not the same company that it used to be.. I used to love coming to work everyday before things went downhill. Now management is only focused on their bottom-lines.

    This is a very structured place to work. The management keeps it fun yet all tasks are completed.

    Getting along with many other individuals can be troublesome at times. Gossip is also a tad overwhelming.

    Monitor employees a little more.
