Pros

Has a great group of people to work with and for. Very competitive wages. Many resources to help all.

Cons

Need to advance into the technology field and be the leader in renovation.

Advice to Management

Try to recall what made us great - our crew! I still believe we offer a great work environment but lately we have taken much from the employees to leverage revenues. The crew deserves better. Also corporate needs to partner better with the operators.

    Pros

    Awesome tip average My co-workers are the best Benefits are great

    Cons

    Constantly depicted as a number (your serving ability is determined by service statistics: the number of add-ons you sell, number of returns you had, and only applauded if you had guests that actually went online and did the survey and left you a good review) Management is a hot mess

    Advice to Management

    If you treat your employees with more respect and not just be concerned with numbers you may gain more respect out of them. I understand that we are corporate, but that doesn't mean we aren't human.


  2. Great company to work for while in school!

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility, health insurance, matched 401k, discounts on many businesses such as AT&T, Darden Dimes, higher check averages than many other chain restaurants

    Cons

    Like many restaurants, just having to serve rude people; a good share of sidework and cleaning

    Advice to Management

    The managers need to be on the same page about many issues.
