    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.

    Pros

    Friday's service style goes above and beyond normal casual dining. The company believes the guests experience should always exceed expectations and there are standards set in place to ensure that happens!

    Cons

    If you have what it takes to please your guests, lead your team and strive to succeed there are no cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire/train and retain great people, makes the job that much easier!
