    I worked at Applebee's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Mostly good staff, but a few bad 'apples'. Ummmm?

    Cons

    Upper Level Mgmt has no idea what they are doing. Ignoring repairs, ignoring company policy, cutting the throats of GM's - watch them leave in mass. Policy of having a 'write-up' on every employee so you can fire them at will is simply Bad Policy. Working Mgrs 80+ hours for a bonus that is ever changing and unattainable is bad policy. Paying GMs 0 dollars more than an Asst Mgr is ridiculous. Every single restaurant job I had was better than being a GM in this Franchise!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you buy a batch of stores from the original founder of the company - clean house at the upper level. You guys (and I mean the ones that actually should be fired) are squeezing out GMs as if it was them. Once all the GMs are gone.....then who will they blame?

    I worked at Applebee's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The money was good, and the place was always busy. I was making $400 in tips Thursday through Sunday. Can't think of any other pros.

    Cons

    The training was insufficient. Not enough to train a server. The trainer had zero incentive for me to succeed, and it showed. Politics were nuts. I came off the street. Other folks, hosts for instance, had wanted to be servers for a while, so they didn't appreciate management selecting me over them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train better.
