    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement if you are willing to work for it.

    Cons

    You do not get paid enough for the work you are expected to do. Once the trainers left, I figured out to my horror that I had to do twice the amount of work for my station than I was expecting to do (which was already a lot, more than one person can handle in a three hour time period before service).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees fairly, and let them know from the get-go exactly how much work they'll be doing daily.

    Financially rewarding, but the work environment is frustrating due to management ineptitude

    I have been working at BJ's Restaurants part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Financially rewarding
    -Opportunity to advance in the company if your performance is above average
    -The aim is for consistency, though it isn't always achieved

    Cons

    -Management staff is rarely on the same page for anything
    -Poor training of new employees
    -Poor performance is never reprimanded, so there is a general culture of mediocrity within the service staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to upper management, is to do a better job of screening potential store managers. I've been through 10+ managers at the Gainesville location in a timespan of 3 years. There has been one consistent manager in this timeframe.
