    I worked at Applebee's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    cash in-hand every shift, a good reference for other server jobs, opportunity to strengthen your skills, employee food discount, basic and simple menu

    Cons

    way too much work expected of the servers. you bus your own tables, roll your own silverware, a lot of people come in just to take advantage of the half-price apps. you tip the hosts just to seat you, not to help bus your tables which seems backwards to me since i thought the company paid them an hourly wage to seat the restaurant...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop changing the specials all the time. try to avoid the favoritism with the sections with the servers and split up the good tables evenly.

    I worked at Applebee's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The local staff is amazing, and very friendly.

    Cons

    Management only cares about impressing higher ups, and the higher ups have a terrible way of motivating teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn more about your employees, and stop trying to impress your boss. Impress your employees, and work from there.
