They work you to the bone, but the clientele is usually polite and you make a lot of money.

I have been working at P.F. Chang's full-time for more than a year

Pros

The Colorado Springs, CO location is almost always busy, so there is a great opportunity to make money. I also enjoy the upscale clientele of the restaurant, which generally means we get fewer rude people who do not know how to tip.

Cons

This particular location is always understaffed, which means that everyone is overworked. There is also a high turnover rate. I have also heard from servers who have worked for other companies that the steps of service at P.F. Chang's require a lot more work than at other restaurants.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make your staff want to stay with P.F. Chang's by hiring more people.

    No respect for managers! No company support for employees.

    I worked at P.F. Chang's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only pro is getting free food when you work there. The food can be good depending on which cook is cooking it.

    Cons

    This place goes through General Managers (Operating Partners) like water. 4 in 2 years. 15 managers in 3 years. The managers are not respected by these Operating Partners. The servers run the place. All they have to do is make false claims about managers and the managers are fired or written up. The Operating partners have been incompetent at their positions and because of this, the managers have to do everything, yet, the OPs get all the praise, but when the OP fails, the managers get blamed. The worst restaurant to work for!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your Managers. Do not let the hourly drama queens run the place.
