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

Pros

Great insurance, great 401k match up and great vacation pay.

Cons

I worked for this company for a few years and I don't have any regrets but I know I got out out at the right time as the former CEO did and about 12 other managers. Some of the decisions upper management made the pass 2 years is sending this once awesome concept to ground. One of those decisions was to set one of the main TV's on the fox channel news, but the decision that really went straight to the heart of this company is the implementation of the 1/9 verify program......I am an independent when it comes to political affiliation, but I can see this company it's run by a true Republican, not wrong or bad but they should be more discreet about their political preference.

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

    Pros

    The tips can be good when the kitchen doesn't take forever to get the food out.

    Cons

    Where do I start? The managers talk down to the staff, they are unapproachable and are impossible to find when you need them. Instead of taking responsibility for the problems in the restaurant, and fixing them..they blame the FOH employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no problem with the company itself, but this location's management is the problem! Run some food, bus a table, just be there to help out. quit talking down to your staff. THEY are the ones that sell your brand, and make it so you get your bonus checks!
