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

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

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

    Pros

    -Pays minimum plus tips even though not legally required, at least in my store

    -Thorough training. They push you to excel at service

    -Moves people up as quickly as possible. Hosts move up to the next step typically in 4-6 months, to server in under a year and if you're interested in management this is well within the realm of possibility as well.

    -Flexible scheduling with understanding management. Great for college students and people with other jobs

    -Busy place where servers can make good money, probably the best in town

    -Will give great references to good employees and will help you transfer to another store if needed

    Cons

    -Management can be a bit disorganized, though no worse than anywhere else

    -Corporate feel can be a bit tiring. Lots of rules to follow, push for getting customers to fill out surveys and do promos, though staff is rewarded for doing well at this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get scheduling done further out. I typically don't know what my schedule is more than a week out which makes things difficult to plan for and can be a bit frustrating.
