    I worked at T.G.I. Friday's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work "family", training process is thorough, management is fair and the food is delicious and you get half off meals on nights you work...ribs included! When a new menu comes out, a staff meeting is called and the kitchen makes everything off the new menu for everyone to try, which is great when you are selling the product to the customer to know exactly what it tastes like.

    Cons

    Depending on what city your location is in the clientele may not be so great, that was my situation. I still loved working there because the staff and management was so awesome, but the people that came in were rude, didn't tip well and made you run around like crazy. Sometimes that can't be avoided though unfortunately. I had 2 tables stiff me on a bill there, nowhere else has this EVER happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing a great job and apply stricter rules on customers for parties, call aheads and the like to make sure that your staff won't be taken advantage of.

    I have been working at T.G.I. Friday's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good hours, somewhat flexible hours, great for college studens looking for a part time job. Free lunch if you're hungry, it's not a good idea to abuse this privilege. Coworkers are like a family, we all work together regardless of different positions.

    Cons

    Most likely have to give up weekends & nights. If your in the kitchen prepared to have minor burns or cuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication between management & coworkers.

    Pros

    Many positive aspects of working for TGIF's include flexible schedule, good pay, opportunities to advance in the company,and fun atmosphere. My location has exceptional management. and I sincerely enjoy being an employee at Friday's.

    Cons

    I personally cannot think of any cons worth writing on here. Any negative aspects would be anything anyone who works a service job would experience and has nothing to do with the company in particular (for example, long shifts that are often late night). However that comes with the type of job and is understandable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not have any advice for management except to keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Very casual work environment with a fun atmosphere. A very real open door policy with everyone. Executives are smart and inviting. Lots of opportunity for growth inside the company.

    Cons

    Vacation time and benefits could be better, but they're not bad. Pay is generally very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase flexible hours and vacation. Generally, everything seems to be on the right track though.
