Pros

still a little room to show individuality, stress for employees to show teamwork, lots of menu implementations

Cons

Too many coupons, a lot of times, managers are too worried about making the right survey scores than they are the actual situation

Advice to Management

stop relying so much on GSS - there are too many people out there just trying to get something for free

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have anything to add. I loved my managers! They were amazing! I always looked up to them and I was never afraid to say something or to share something that I thought would be important for them to know. They are so respectful of your life outside the restaurant, if you have something going on, they will always try to work it out. We always would be getting continuous positive feedback and tips on how to do our job better. Loved it! It was really sad when our restaurant got closed. I'm going to miss all of my Friday's family.

    Pros

    Fun environment. Good coworkers. Room for advancement. Understanding managers. Not only teaches a skill of cooking but that of general lifelong worth such as dealing with stressful situations, leadership abilities, and all types of characters that will be met in the back of a kitchen like that of TGI.

    Cons

    Fast paced. Long shifts. No official breaks. Stressful. Overly managed. A job, a worth while one. But not a career in and of itself due to pay, and the condescending nature in which managers assume of your decision making abilities.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as if they have the common sense to make some decisions for themselves and not as children... unless proven otherwise.
