    Slavery. If you consider yourself a workhorse do it because the money is there, if not stay away.

    I have been working at Applebee's part-time

    Pros

    You could move up fast if you have no dirt and that's your goal from the very beginning

    Cons

    Sexual harassment, they modify your time hours so they can make labor, so you're short on hours. They will try to not pay you to train. They won't clock you in for staff meetings or menu roll outs. The managers are vindictive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it in your pants. Stop stealing hours.

    I worked at Applebee's part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, no prior experience needed, good starting point in the industry

    Cons

    Company cares more about sales than customer service by putting all emphasis on drink contests rather than trying to build a base of returning guests hurting their overall sales in process, most nights very understocked and management very inexperienced leading to shifts being unorganized, very little promotion from within

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treating employees with respect and help them continue to progress and develop their food and drink knowledge there has been a big disconnect between management and team members on a professional level
