BJ's Restaurants, a great place to begin or refine your restaurant experience.

I worked at BJ's Restaurants

ProsA great work environment where extroverts thrive. I myself am a very outgoing person with good attention skills, and being able to work at a restaurant that utilizes it was great. The food was great, and typical customers were nice. If you are looking at getting into the restaurant industry, this is a great place to start, with good training and decent advancement opportunities.

ConsLike any restaurant, you take the blunt end of any mistakes, even if they happen in the kitchen. This is typical of any restaurant though, as the server is responsible for the customer. Management was great about taking care of the mistakes, whether it be late or incorrect food. Also, getting time off sometimes depended on someone else covering your shift, which meant you could be stuck working on a day you requested off.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue doing what you do! You are a big reason why the company is growing, and supporting your employees and making them happy helps them share that feeling with the customers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
