I worked at Red Robin

Pros

-Paid above minimum wage at entry positions
-Fun working environment most of the time
-50% discount when eating by yourself, 20% when eating with a group

Cons

-VERY strict about following policies.
(Wear buttons and name tag on shirt at all times, open the front door for all customers, black belt with shirt tucked in, only one piece of jewelry at a time, etc.)
-At times, there can be hostility between the hospitality team (hosts & hostesses) and the servers.
-Very busy on weekends (Usually around a 2-3 hour wait on Friday nights)
-Many aspects of the restaurant are geared toward children, so prepare for crying and screaming.
-Many of my requests for time off were either denied or forgotten.

    Pros

    One reason that I liked working at Red Robin was due to the management. They were very involved and always made sure they complimented me on any hard work they seen me do. They, along with a few other employees were very welcoming when I first started working there.

    Cons

    -very little hours
    -little pay w/ slim chances of getting a raise
    -fast paced
    -dealing with bossy customers
    -dealing with extremely whiny servers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The servers and hostesses should not communicate whatsoever. It's a hassle to the hostesses

    Pros

    free soda, discounts on their ridiculous $10 burgers, the usual fringe benefits from waiting tables. you can honestly do better somewhere else.

    Cons

    encyclopedias of information that you have to know about the company and relay to each guest, even when they obviously don't care. tables are crowded, servers are drowned in sidework even when it's busy, manager is a leaping, purple buffoon. getting sick of hearing about "unbridled" RR culture too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    general manager needs a chill pill. i expect him to have an aneurysm one of these days when he's trying to get his "team" pumped up about hamburgers. they are only hamburgers man. hamburgers.
