  1.  

    Not a bad place to work, but not many avenues for advancement.

    I worked at Red Robin

    Pros

    I worked at RR as a waiter for a year. the environment is nice and the kitchen is efficient. I worked with good people.

    Cons

    tips were low as it is mostly a family restaurant and families are usually looking to pinch pennies. Understandably so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible about scheduling and providing avenues for advancement to wait staff.

  2.  

    Long, confusing, and I'm glad it's almost over.

    I have been working at Red Robin full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pays well
    Easy to prepare food
    Hours are there

    Cons

    Some restaurants have a slow season, Red Robin does not.

    Attitudes make or break how the night goes due to the volume.

    Lots of allergies, mostly to gluten.

    Management is hit or miss. If you're unlucky enough to have terrible managers, good luck trying to get Human Resources to do something about it. They'll hang up.

    Menus change all the time at any restaurant but some items (such as the super popular smoked pepper burger) on red robin's menu, are out of place. All burgers take 9 minutes or less to cook and put up in the window, but the Smoked pepper burger takes AT LEAST 14 minutes to. Having one burger on a menu that takes almost double the amount of time to cook, compared to the rest of the menu is boneheaded. It kills ticket times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut your team some slack. When it's busy, keep the kitchen calm instead of antagonizing them to get you something. It's poison for the work environment.
