Pros

-Great customer service experience -Great managers -Great people to work with -Great practice for working in a high paced environment

Cons

-Very pressured to perform -Lots of negative reinforcement

Advice to Management

Use more positive reinforcement than negative. It will make the employees want to do better for you and will keep them from talking bad about you behind your back. It will also help them be excited to come to work instead of dreading it because of fear.

    Pros

    The only real benefit of working for Applebee's that I have found is brand recognition. I'm really having to try to think of anything else.... no. That's it.

    Cons

    Poor management, worse training, no teamwork, no consistency, horrible cleanliness, constant mistakes, poor planning and prep, always playing catch up.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to sit down and develop a plan that you can use to make your restaurant a success. Make a daily build to for your prep and make sure that you are fully prepared for the following shift. Create and follow realistic staffing guidelines to ensure that you are meeting your guests needs. Most importantly work as a team. Nothing ensures that your employees will not care like constant complaining about the other members of the management staff and whining about how poorly everything is run. Be the example. Show your crew how to be a team. We are all here to work together and make money. Be the example.
