I have been working at T.G.I. Friday's full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great co-workers, company is focused on innovation and is constantly changing in an attempt to meet market needs. Reasonable potential for advancement with some caveats.

Cons

Fridays often misses the mark with new drinks and menu items. Moving into management means a large pay cut in hourly rate - managers work 60 hour weeks or more for about $40-45k.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time doing market research on new drinks before rolling them out and ensure they can be made quickly. Reward senior employees with better base compensation. Add paid sick days so sick employees that live paycheck to paycheck don't come to work sick and infect others. Pay vacation and sick days at the employees average rate including tips instead of minimum wage.

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

    Pros

    Lax atmosphere.

    I guess if your a drug user, this would be a good place to work because there is no discipline for going into work high. Drunk yes, high no.

    Cons

    Unorganized, work schedule comes out way to late so you cant plan your life the next week.

    If they try and change the schedule because something happened, they dont ask you, nor tell you and expect you to know.

    No drug screening so ppl use drugs all the time.
