    I have been working at Carlson Restaurants full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It's a great company with lots of potential for growth with a firm hold on the restaurant industry. The atmosphere of its always friday's shines through.

    Cons

    The new items that are available on the menu don't always work in each market but the concept of getting guests to return is happening. The endless apps are driving traffic but not always the best traffic when it comes to the type of guests in our market.

    Advice to Management

    Just know that it is always friday's in the restaurant, always use your product support. Have a outgoing attitude and the potential of moving up in the company will be there.
