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

    Pros

    -Great hours
    -Amazing co-workers and management
    -Good tips depending on shift and day of the week
    -Food discount is okay...during training you get free meals!
    -During daily shift line-ups you get the opportunity to sample a food and beverage (which is great with helping you learn the menu!)

    Cons

    -Corporate..
    -Force you to push surveys on the customers, most of which could care less.
    -To strict with server scripting..they say that you are supposed to be yourself and bring out your personality, but then they make you recommend 2 alcoholic drinks, two appetizers, two entrees, and dessert.
    -Corporate forces the kitchen to skimp on portions which angers guests, which in turn screws over the servers because in order to get them more of whatever was skimped we have to charge them extra (aka queso dip, spinach dip)

    Pros

    Vacation time.is good. I've been able to earn 160 hours of vacation time. I work a typical 50-55 hour work week but when I take a week off I only lose 40 hours of PTO.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of support from higher ups when it comes to understanding daily tasks in the restaurant.
