Good restaurant experience for someone who has none. Easy to learn and work your way up. Managers are pretty nice.

Pros

Staff is easy going and friendly and pretty laid back. Potential to make good money if you put in the effort.

Cons

Some of the servers are cranky and get mad if they are either too busy or not busy enough. Hard to please every single person. Can't really trust anyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management was great.

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

    Pros

    Great money for the hours as a server. I've been there 4 years. Cooks work extra hard because of the high volume but they can advance and get raises with every section of the line they learn. It's a very busy place. My store only promotes from within but it's easy to advance if you work hard. My GM is very "by the book" and runs a tight ship. The other managers are nice and helpful and really care about the Guest's experience as well as ours.

    Cons

    It's VERY high volume. Be prepared to sweat. It's hard, physical work and you are dealing with the public. You have to be nice so this isn't for everybody. The server's hourly wage in most states is LAME!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling- you can pick up and drop shifts on line. Great money, friendly staff, great food and processes. They are always busy.

    Cons

    Big menu to memorize, long training period where you don't make tips.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
