I worked at BJ's Restaurants part-time (More than a year)
I worked here through college. They were very flexible with classes and time off. Managers were nice and there was great opportunities for advancement. If you wanted, you could definitely move up from server or host to trainer and management roles.
The biggest disappointment was the disparity in pay. I was hired when the location first opened at a pretty good rate of pay, but after a year, they jumped the rate for new hires, however they didn't adjust pay for those who'd been there. I was making almost $2 less an hour after working there two years than the new high school grad who'd been there a month.
Advice to Management
Reward your senior employees. Your best employees leave because they feel they aren't being appreciated. If you are going to raise the rate of pay for new hires, you must make your current employees rates match.
