Pros

If you work hard and begin each shift with a smile it will be rewarding.

Cons

Management is usually not trained in diversity and therefore outwardly offensive to cultures other than Caucasion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest and dependable, and exclude the outlandish racist jokes.

    I worked at T.G.I. Friday's part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers can be fun to work with and pay at $9/hr is reasonably good for the job you do, but not for the people you have to deal with.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites and are very picky, sometimes unfair. Not many hours. Friday's restaurants attract a certain 'kind' of clientele who can be very frustrating and downright nasty. I've heard customers yell and threaten my coworkers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your all of your employees fairly, and don't hire so many people for one job. Evenly distribute hours!!!

    I have been working at T.G.I. Friday's full-time (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.
