I have been working at Cheesecake Factory part-time (less than an year)

Pros

when you sit down and do the math, the pay is grate. You average about 20 dollars a hour on a above average, and the highs outnumber the lows.

Cons

extreme favoritism is shown to the people that are more physically attractive. Pretty petite females often get the best sections on the best nights, while they continue to miss run food, and fail to do side work. Management picks and chooses what rules they want to follow when it suits them best.

    I worked at Cheesecake Factory part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You'll have plenty of positive camaraderie with your fellow staff in the the trenches. But that's about the only pro.

    Cons

    Low pay in certain areas. In some places your minimum wage is so low you're completely relent on your tips. Management plays obvious favorites. A lot of personal relationships occurring between staff and staff and managers resulting in an insanely high rate of drama. Very "top-down" organization. Restaurant managers don't even have the authority to close their location in the event of severe weather it has to be run by higher-ups first

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many issues to fix, in my opinion. A complete overhaul of the upper echelons is needed. As well they need to implement better training for managers, and for more comprehensive training for staff as well as a tougher interview process to weed the "trouble-makers" and slackers.
