    Pros

    A few good friends met at Cheddar's. Management was helpful most the time when called upon.

    Cons

    Poorly rewarded for demanding position. I worked very hard for Cheddar's and was advanced very little. I finally left the place behind.

    Pros

    The management at the location I work at is really pretty good. Columbia, MO restaurant worked for a year here the other employees are nice. Also as long as your location is busy, expect making on average at least 12-15 bucks an hour. Ya the meals may be cheap, and that means cheap people, table turn over and the atmosphere makes a lot of cheap people tip better cause they feel fancy, I think. Plus the 50% anytime discount is fantastic, I got steak, ribs, shrimp, and two sides for only $11!

    Cons

    Because restraint tends to stay so busy especially on weekends breaks may not be given at all even for doubles. Other than that not a lot to complain about.

    Pros

    Cheddar's provides great hours an flexible scheduling for their employees. The management will be able to work with almost any scheduling issues.

    Cons

    Having to fill in for others, picking up slack for others or have to perform a task that is not under your job.

    Advice to Management

    When hiring someone they should only have to do the job hired as unless needed else where. There shouldn't be a spontaneous need for someone to be ambushed and asked to do another job. Also allow for growth in restaurant, if a host is also a GSA then they should be able to become a waiter, especially if you are hiring waiters.

    Pros

    Nothing good at this company. Run away fast as you can.

    Cons

    All of the Hispanics work together leaving everyone else struggling. Hispanics get easy promotions after working for about two weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees have to say.
