I have been working at T.G.I. Friday's full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

from the beginning, Friday's has been a reliable, consistent option for great food and atmosphere.
I worked there for over 10 years and through all the menu changes, whether an item became a hit,
or miss, it was given a fair opportunity to live on. That said, the same goes for their employment practices. You are given an opportunity to have fun doing business in a fun atmosphere serving fun products.

Cons

As with any employer, bad communication/no communication between a management team always ends with a negative on down the line for everyone connected. Integrity is a slippery slope; not everyone will have the capacity to reach it for long. Some do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Simply be in communication with your team. And be as honest as possible with everyone - including yourself.

    I have been working at T.G.I. Friday's full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    flexible hours (even if it's a complicated schedule)
    relatable and helpfull managers
    good opportunity to learn in the hospitality industry
    more or less decent tip/tipshare

    Cons

    some inconsiderate coworkers
    some clientelle behave improperly and rudely and try anything at will to get more discounts
    very rude back of house employees such as chefs and dishwashers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    limit the discounts, it attracts the rude clientelle, and it cuts chances for both servers and the corperation to make money
    im not sure if bussers are in most tgi fridays but, the tip share is unfairly distributed, the hosts get a hefty tipshare compared to bussers who go through all the biohazards of trash and being exposed to other people's bacteria, and then dont even have health benefits in return for thier hard work. the tipshare comes from servers and they would want that money to go to those who assist them directly. isnt this a legal issue?
