    I worked at P.F. Chang's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits for full-time employees, managers that really care about the running of the show, awesome family members, thorough training in menu knowledge ... P.F. Chang's has a great mission and it was great to see that a chain restaurant could do so well.

    Cons

    Lazy employees, not a lot of flexibility with schedule unless it's due to emergencies, extremely busy with seemingly an attitude just to turn tables for guests

    I worked at P.F. Chang's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    hardworking group of people. good place to refine skills with technical measurements. diversity with fellow emplyoees makes for an outstanding work environment

    Cons

    managers are too concerned about numbers at the end if the day and it creates a conflict of interest for new employees. training is focused on learning on you own with a lot of telling you what you did wrong rather than what you did right

    Pros

    nice management, very professional environment and a great place to build connections.

    Cons

    For first time servers working at PF Changs is difficult. Understanding all the foods and drinks is tough to learn in the beginning so you will struggle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain a relationship with your employees because how the management speaks with the employees reflects on how the employees will respond to the customers.
