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

Pros

Easy to get time off since there are lots of servers. Flexible with schedules and being a student. Fast paced environment and usually always busy. Never had to worry if we were going to get business.

Cons

Easy to burnout. Asked to work all major holidays. Requires you to claim based off of your sales for the shift, not how much you actually made. Often was the case that I had to claim more than I made. Lead Servers were often in charge of the schedule, so politics involved in getting good shifts.

    Pros

    Servers make good money because people usually buy dessert. Overall good company to be a part of, there is upward mobility if you are interested in a career but be prepared for it to take a very long time

    Cons

    Schedule was never consistent, so I couldn't ever plan out other things in my life more than a week in advance. Management was condescending quite often

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't promise people promotions they won't actually see for 6 months.

    Pros

    They are willing to work around your schedule.

    Cons

    The company does not care about you, to them you are just replaceable, but yet try to act as though you are its "greatest asset." They do not have your back in situations dealing with guests, and let guests walk all over the employee to please the guest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick up for your lower level employees.
