    Pros

    Can relocate to anywhere. Promote from within

    Cons

    Communication between upper management and field management terrible. Corporate owned. Corporate should take more advice from the field than from their "focus groups"

    Advice to Management

    Communication and respect are key

    Outback has commitments to their customers and their employees to be a safe and fun place to eat drink and be with friends.

    I can't think of any. A job is a job and this is a great one.

    Pros

    Excellent cash and able to pick up shifts if you need more money.

    Cons

    The tips have gotten slightly worse over the years and people don't realize that servers only make 2.83 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough people that employees aren't made to work more days than they had agreed to when hired.

    Pros

    The environment is friendly and fun. Always different people coming and going. If your a person who loves to talk and interact with people this is perfect for you. My management was so fun and laid back however, we as a staff still did our job and catered to the customer quickly whenever they needed us and when they didn't need us.

    Cons

    You HAVE to be open to working holidays! :-(
