Overall, my experience has been good.

Restaurant Manager (Current Employee)
Richmond, VA

I have been working at Applebee's

ProsWith all the locations in the Richmond area there is greater opportunity for relocation and advancement. The medical/benefits package offered is better than most corporate restaurants in this area.

ConsAs a manager; long hours with no compensation for time exceeding fifty hours / week, the hourly labor budget is so low you end up doing all the work yourself, the bonus program is designed to only be hit by stores in high volume areas.

Awful, awful place to work

Manager (Former Employee)
Richmond, VA

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

ProsShift meal. Decent pay for starting managers.

ConsThe guests are terrible. Expect something for free every time. Mind you that Applebee's are often in Wal Mart parking lots, and attract the same kinds of people. It is the clientele they are shooting for.
If your Area Director doesn't like you, they will find any excuse whatsoever to fire you. It is a terrible atmosphere to work in. Highly stressful. No fun.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay and benefits are the one reason anyone even works for this company. They have a horrible reputation for churning and burning managers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Server (Current Employee)

I have been working at Applebee's

ProsCash money every night
Get to meet lots of people. Sometimes beneficial, sometimes not.
Dynamic work environment
Fast paced environment

ConsManagement sucks. They care about nothing but themselves
The money varies.
Favoritism plays a huge role in the politics there.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart caring about your employee's. Evaluate them on what they are doing right instead of being rude when they do the first thing wrong.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
