New managers every month it seems like

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Applebees is an amazing place to work, it was my first job but some advice try to keep managers for as long as possible and try to give the hosts a little more base pay.

    Pros

    Store/GM Specific, however, leave an hour early if it's slow...coworkers usually scratch your back as long as you scratch theirs. Potential to Bonus every quarter.

    Cons

    Scheduling, alot of close/opens. close shifts prior to your weekend. Managament not on the same page...no consistensy. Not enough time in a shift to do administrative work, schedules, interviews, etc. Labor budget & staffing can be extremely challenging. I find the salary is off by a few thousand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be, take more time with your management schedules. Quality of life is a huge factor in wanting to stay or go in this company.
