I have been working at Red Robin

Pros

Good Tips, friendly guest, friendly employees...

Cons

Can't bring employee meal home unless you pay full price, like the togo box cost $5 or something..
Some managers are like best friends with some employees and play favorites.. You know who you are...
You put in for a Direct Deposit and it never happens..
You put in for a change of address.. never happens.. so any personal information like your w2 form is going to another state.. thank god for online w2s..
they overstaff, so after driving 30 min. you get sent home a hour after you clock on, you make $10, tip out $3 which leaves you with $7, and a empty tank of gas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a clue, sell phones should be used for work only, txting is not work!

    Good place to work when I started, but company goals changed to make the shareholders happy by the end.

    Pros

    Great people. Great food. Lots of locations means more opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Becoming more corperate year after year. They say their responsibilities are the guest, the team members, then the shareholders. This was the case but isn't anymore. They made their money to get through the hard times by taking care of the guest. Once the hard economic times were almost over they reversed this goal. The shareholders are definitly the driving force, and to drive this upper management constantly threatens managers jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revert back to taking care of the guest. That's what made you great.
