    Pros

    Our store is great. We have good, well trained people, who deliver great service. We also have good relationships with other stores around us. The culture is important at this location.

    Cons

    Not much growth past store management. Pay is under comps in the area. Expected work hours are not conducive to raising a family.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get so entangled in the numbers. A great store is a great store because of the people. Work hard to keep those people.

    Great pay and benefits are offered if you work full-time (35 hours/wk).

    Corporate seems a bit out of touch with day-to-day operations of a restaurant.

    Pros

    Good working hours. Great clientele. Good management

    Cons

    Corporate keeps changing everything. That means the changes they made before were wrong.

    Pros

    I helped open the PF Changs at the Ann Arbor, MI location. I've never had such a supportive group of managers who are willing to help you through your personal and work problems. We all grew into a little family and it has been a pleasure working not only for the company but for this specific locations.

    Cons

    Every restaurant jobs has its cons; for this new location, things are still a bit unorganized. The training for a new branch requires a lot of overtime for its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they matter and we will put in the same effort at work.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Servers make great money. Mateos if service makes the guest happy.

    Cons

    When the kitchen goes down the front of the house gets blamed. People will complain about anything but that's the industry

  9. It's fine for a college student

    Pros

    Most people are really easy to get along with. The hours are really flexible and the tips are decent considering it's casual dining.

    Cons

    No breaks at all on Saturdays and sometimes other days when it's busy. They'll sometimes make food for the employees but sometimes can't be bothered. Some managers are unprofessional and display blatant favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Try being less obvious with your favoritism. It shows.

    Pros

    Industry is fun. Field is hard working. Home Office has had a lot of turnover but executive leadership changes are promising.

    Cons

    Being held by private equity. Culture took a big hit.

  11. Job itself is same as any other restaurant.

    Pros

    -Guests are generally easy to cater to
    -Menu is simple when you get to know it

    Cons

    -Non-existent management
    -Very fast paced, expect to run and bus all your tables yourself

    Advice to Management

    Need to get better at working with guests without having to comp any and all complaints. Even the littlest things result in whole bills getting comped, which screw over the servers' tips.
