I worked at Red Robin part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The culture at Red Robin is fantastic. When I was working there I felt like I was part of a family. The managers seemed to take a genuine interest in their employee's well-being inside and outside of work and the employees were (mostly) easy to get a long with and (most of the time) had a good sense of team work and unity. Overall this was a good job while still in college.

Cons

However, with the "family" feeling there was also the inevitable downside. Like most restaurants there was clearly favoritism, and a lot of employees didn't get the respect they deserved even though they worked harder than a lot of other members. This isn't a problem exclusive to Red Robin, and though most of the time I was on the side that received a lot of advantages, I felt like punishments were given out that didn't warrant the crime. The management also liked to promise a lot of things that they never followed up on, and with the constant change of management, employees didn't know what to expect month to month.

    Pros

    Great team environment, hours aren't that bad if you work just one shift instead of a double.

    Cons

    Not always steady money. Changes depending on business, weather, school, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get managers that can stay longer than a few months and ones that know how to manage a restaurant.
