    Good for some extra money in the bank account, but the in the words of my interviewer, "It's not a career."

    Pros

    When you eat there either before your shift or during your break, you get employee discounts on the food.

    For a restaurant job, the pay isn't that bad, and all the servers' tips are pooled.

    Cons

    The main problem was with my location in Ridley Park, but the managers never seemed to communicate with one another.

    Great co-workers but terrible pay.

    Pros

    Loved working with most of the people there. It made for a fun work environment.

    Cons

    The clientele of Applebees is typically a cheaper bad attitude type crowd. You work really hard and won't receive a 10% tip. Lots of times you won't receive a tip on $50+ tickets. Management will try to tell you it is your fault that your not making enough money even though majority of the problems servers have are kitchen or food packaging related. Not service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your top employees and actually deal with the customers and know what the customers want. Don't micromanage and look at the big picture. (They loved to get onto guys about a shirt that was wrinkled or sleeves that were rolled up but wouldn't pay attention to inventory or customers needs)
