Pros

The people who work there are fun and friendly. There is a great team atmosphere, so everyone looks out for each other. The management is usually flexible with schedules.

Cons

Promotions are usually based on popularity and not on merit. You have to kiss- A** to the management in order to get a promotion, but it doesn't matter if you suck or not. At least in my store it was like that. Also, to the management, money is more important than the happiness of employees.

Advice to Management

Try to at least pretend to care about the employees, we know money is important but sometimes the desire to cut costs supersedes the ability to treat employees with respect.

    Pros

    Red Robin seems to be a relatively "low-barrier" employer (no drug tests, criminal record not fatal to employment prospects, no experience required) but perhaps too much so. While I was there as a host at least 20 other hosts were hired on, making a grand total of somewhere around 40 hosts. It is definitely a good opportunity for someone who has been having trouble getting work.

    Cons

    It was nigh impossible to get enough hours. This was my personal experience. Management was horrible, and often creepy, hitting on female staff.

    Advice to Management

    Stop groping the waitresses
