It's been open for two months and I've worked there since the beginning.

I have been working at BJ's Restaurants part-time for less than a year

ProsThe staff's friendly and the managers are nice. They also have really good food.

ConsThe tips average 10% no matter what you do, sometimes worse than that to nothing at all. The cutting and breaking is terrible and chaotic, the managers get stressed too easily, the kitchen is really slow, and it just doesn't seem like anyone knows what they're doing and we, the servers, get blamed and tipped badly for it, and we're already getting bad tips because half the customers don't understand a good tip from a bad one. I feel like a robot and the guests probably think so too with our introduction and "steps of service"

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
