Pay is good and bonus is generally attainable. You are given all of the tools you need to succeed, how far you go is mostly up to you.

    I worked at BJ's Restaurants part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The management was friendly and understanding when I had scheduling conflicts. While I only have experience at one of their restaurants, I imagine most locations have similar processes for schedule adjustment, contacting employees, etc.

    Cons

    Can be stressful during busy nights alone

    Pros

    there's no shortage of hours for cheap employees

    Cons

    i thought this was an upgrade from my previous employer, but i was very disappointed. they tried to cheat me on my pay by promising one rate and delivering another, waited till id been there 2 weeks before i was put in the system/on the books. management is completely incompetent and overpaid, they all just hide in the office till the rush hits. i was expected to do everything by the book even though they werent, such as a promotion given to a dishwasher that has never worked boh but the kitchen manager had clearly began fraternizing so she got the job after 2 days. ive worked at some shady places but this is the absolute worst job ive ever had. management is a joke, horrible communication, spineless snakes.

    Advice to Management

    quit.
