I have been working at Cheesecake Factory part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Managers are good. Mark, the GM is an awesome dude. They train great leaders. You have a couple micro managers but the manager will work with you if you show up to work do your job and go home. I worked at a CCF in 3 states. Chicago (Michigan Ave.) was my favorite. So many people from all walks of life come through on a regular basis. Rich poor, celebrities common folks, etc. The employees are so diverse. I enjoyed working and learning from them. If you can deal with stress, high performance work, rude customers (every so often) bad tippers (every so often), language barriers and being on your feet for hours. Then do this job. Its still amazing to see this CCF coordinate such a huge crowd and 300 employee staff.

Cons

Turn over is very high. If someone doesn't show up, you have to pick up the slack. If you have a micromanaging manager, its the worst because this is an already stressful environment.

    I have been working at Cheesecake Factory full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    With the maintenance department, you have more freedom than the rest of the plant. You work at your own pace as long as it keeps the plant running. Overtime can be achieved.

    Cons

    No sick pay. Production can be annoying sometimes. You will constantly have to train people you have previously trained on how to use equipment.
