I have been working at P.F. Chang's part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great working environment. Management is very helpful with scheduling and time off.

Cons

I honestly cannot think of any bad thing to say about working for pf changs. I make my own hours and come home with cash in my pocket every night.

    Typical corporate restaurant chain: Admirable mission statement, but the bottom line trumps it.

    I have been working at P.F. Chang's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very thorough training. Hard-working team-oriented co-workers. Web-based scheduling through hotschedules.com -- great mobile app by hotschedules.

    Cons

    DRAMA. High-volume restaurant can make for tired and stressed out servers and bartenders. JACKASS customers who are practiced at getting comped. "Well at the PFChangs in blankety blank they never charge me to sub noodles for rice. And these dumplings are so gummy and overcooked. What are you going to do about this!!" (Oh man do I pity your spouse and kids. Please just go back to blankety blank)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discern the Peter Principle: People climbing the corporate ladder eventually rise above their level of competence. Their subordinates must then suffer through their incompetence until they are inevitably demoted or terminated. Please, if an employee shows any tendencies toward covering their ass, it will only get worse if they are promoted to management. Also, it would be nice if the people at the regional level and higher engaged the restaurant employees as human beings supporting this corporate pyramid. It's as if they enter the restaurant and see a machine to exam and tweak, rarely acknowledging the hard-working people (with actual names they could inquire of) keeping the doors open each day. Yep. Admirable mission statement, but the bottom line trumps it.
