    Pros

    Provided with very good training and the hours were plenty. Fast paced environment. Good system to swap shifts with other coworkers.

    Cons

    As a hostess, we were sometimes forced to work 12+ hour shifts on weekends...with no breaks. This was very tiring when you haven't eaten all day, are running around constantly, and ask for a break and get denied. The managers all have different techniques for seating guests and got upset if you didn't use their ways. When certain employees don't do their jobs, nothing is done.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees and maybe they won't leave.

    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.
