I have been working at Applebee's part-time (more than an year)

Pros

The people here are amazing. We really feel like a family here. I can't say enough about the awesome staff.

Cons

You have to work 1800 hours in a year in order to receive benefits. Management needs to listen to employee suggestions more. We know more about the way the kitchen should be handled than they do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Forget about the stupid cutting gloves. They are entirely useless. Worry more about the hazards in the kitchen that need immediate attention.

    Was not a good experience

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

    Pros

    Did not have to claim all cash tips.

    Cons

    Was "suspended" and then fired because I could not get to work (45 mins away) in a blizzard and no one could cover for me (it was a double shift) so two strikes = fired!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a little common sense.

    I have been working at Applebee's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    1.) Tips.
    2.) Food is good.
    3.) Free drinks during your shift.

    Cons

    1.) Terrible managers that didn't seem to care about guiding you.
    2.) Paying out tips to a grumpy bar-tender.
    3.) Server pay unless it's a higher-end establishment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously try to improve team morale. Be on the floor more if something arises (such as a customer NOT listening to the fact you can't do a Sunday deal on a Saturday).
