Pros

Hiring for front of house is reasonably selective which results in a solid team of competent coworkers who are generally friendly and helpful. Very flexible schedule.

Cons

Unpleasant clientele is more than willing to take advantage of the policy to offer free meals for any sort of complaint. Example: A guest eats his entire dish, asks for a manager and says it "tastes funny" gets the meal that he already ate for free.

    Pros

    Great company to work for in the hospitality/food service industry. The Cheesecake Factory allows students to make plenty of money with a flexible schedule, supplies it's employees with health care, and allows experienced employees to move from restaurant to restaurant via transfers. I personally worked at five locations including San Diego, Hawaii, and Boston. If restaurant management is something you are interested in, The Cheesecake Factory compensates their managers very well, encourage growth, and reward good and loyal managers who deserve rewards.

    Cons

    It is what it is. If you are looking for a job that leaves you fulfilled and prosperous, being a server at any restaurant is not going to cut it. Also, like any restaurant, favoritism does exist. But if you are a good employee and do the right thing/work hard/go above and beyond, you will be one of the favored ones.

    Advice to Management

    Seniority should be rewarded more. At most locations Sundays are mandatory, after working there for five or six years you should not have to work on sundays.
