I have been working at Cheesecake Factory full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Focused on taking care of the guest, quality of operations and product.

Cons

Can still be to top down controlling. Allow more autonomy at the restaurant level to drive sales and connect to the local market.

    I have been working at Cheesecake Factory full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Supportive management team. Working with people from various backgrounds and interest. The ability to grow and possibly be promoted. Informative staff alignments. Flexibility of schedule. Fun environment. Employee feedback is encouraged

    Cons

    Working for this company is not for everyone. One must be focused and willing to work hard due to the volume of the restaurant. One must also be a team player, those that are not don't make it.

    I worked at Cheesecake Factory part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get a 50% off meal but employee meal discount is invalid for most dishes. You can use your 50% for some cheap chicken littles or some cheaper worthless dishes like salad. No steak, no no no..

    Cons

    You are the busier, janitor, highchair carrier, stroller parker, etc.

    You work long hours and have to clean the bathroom and refill all the napkins.

    Also, no tips at all. You walk around all day to look for open tables. You are never at standstill unless you are the greeter which is not likely if you haven't worked long enough...like 5+ year.
