Pros

friendly people, but its impossible to move up within. the only realistic way to become a server is to get a different job.

Cons

very corporate.... forced to follow a script when talking to guests. the list of policies can become overwhelming

    I worked at BJ's Restaurants full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company has great potential to be #1 in casual dining.

    Cons

    Growing too fast to keep up. On an operational level this can be seen and felt. Unfortunately this affects the guest perception and brand loyalty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people. Learn how to see through the fast talking good interviewees nonsense and take more stock in the honest with actual talent and vision.

    Positive Outlook
  2. Dissatisfying

    Pros

    They pay better then min. wage. Offers benefits to full time employees.

    Cons

    Schedule is all over the place. Full time is closer to 31 hours then the 36 promised. Upward movement is almost nonexistent.
