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

    Pros

    This corporate restaurant is committed to quality. The atmosphere and clientele make it easy to support yourself while pursuing other dreams such as education.

    Cons

    There are certain rules you have to adhere to such as specific language at the tables and certain uniform standards. The upper management is more focused on the numbers than the people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget your business depends on its employees to help you meet your numbers and make your bonuses. A little positive reinforcement goes a long way.

    Working here does not pay your bills!

    Pros

    The only unique thing about this is restaurant is that they brew their own beers, ciders, and root beer. As far as food, they do make great pizza.

    Cons

    The kitchen is very small and not organized! There are so many items on the menu that the kitchen gets weeded on a daily basis. Ticket times are very long and mistakes are abundant. The manager cuts the floor so quickly that most of the time you go to work, you are cut after 2 tables.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try practicing fairness on a daily basis. Instead of scheduling the same employees for the closing stations or the bar tops, rotate sections to all employees. Also, don't cut the floor as soon as others walk in the front door, since it does not even pay for the gas to get to work. Add a tip out system so it is calculated on your cash out and not handed out to each bus boy, bartender, and food runner. This creates favorites and ones drinks or food is not priority unless you "pay' extra money to each support staff!
