    I worked at Applebee's full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Apple Gold really does try to provide competitive compensation as well as a work/life balance.

    Area Directors and Regional VP's are very likeable and have all been through the fire before as store managers. There's room for advancement as long as you take the initiative to improve your knowledge of FOH and BOH operations. Prefer to promote from within. As long as you're developing your staff you can and your staff can advance (not to mention it makes your job a lot easier.)

    Corporate office will provide you with tons of feedback and training tools so you will constantly know where you stand against your peers.

    Cons

    They TRY to work with you to provide a good work/life balance. It just doesn't always work that way. Turnover is inevitable in this industry which makes it hard to establish consistent management teams. Late night hours for hourly employees and managers isn't for everyone.

    Menu is always changing. Constantly have to re-train staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cutting back on late night hours would help with manager and hourly turnover. It's harder on scheduling for management and staff when you have to stay open later. It's exhausting on all levels and makes it harder to control labor. Shortening the hours would keep people fresher and allow you to get another shift out of your top hourly employees (without risking OT after 4 days.) Servers don't make money late night due to less than ideal clientele. This makes it harder to staff those shifts, which then makes those shifts harder to manage (more difficult clientele + weaker servers.)
