Pros

Fridays offers good career development and growth opportunities. As a whole, the company does believe in its' employees (management as well as staff) and as a company it strives to create a culture of hospitality. This is a fun, fast paced work environment that can be very rewarding if you work for the right company. T.G.I. Fridays strives to be that company.

Cons

Fridays is going through a lot of growing pains and this has resulted in several store locations in many different markets. As a company they have struggled with growth and will continue to downsize through most of 2011.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

T.G.I. Fridays is a great company to work for, please do your due diligence when it comes to closing down restaurant locations and take care of the staff who has worked so hard to make you profitable.

    Pros

    The people and the management really care and look out for each other. Overall is a more relaxed and fun atmosphere to work in where you can have relax and have fun with the guests while you work.

    Cons

    Some of the guests that you have to deal with can be rude disrespectful. You don't have guaranteed work hours per week, sometimes you are there longer then you expected since its is busy, other times you are told to clock out after starting your shift half an hour ago.
