    I have been working at P.F. Chang's full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The management is really flexible in determining your schedule. They are willing to work with you. Most of the staff are also very friendly and helpful. This has been my first time working in a restaurant industry and I cannot be grateful enough for the support everybody has been showing me. Promotions are also flexible. Good hands-on training, excellent discount benefits.

    Cons

    Be aware of some servers who are unwilling to fully disclose their share of tips with you. Thankfully management is strict about this so if there is an issue just ring them up or talk through with the server. Another con would be not having any insurance and such before the first year but I am a backwaiter. It is not an uncommon practice. During busy seasons, might have a hard time balancing out life as you will likely have no weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and busy a lot so you can make money serving, just need to put in the hours you want. New management team which cares for the employees and asks if you need help with anything and really cares, and just needs another month or two to get things rolling in a good direction. Aces in places, so if you work hard you can get the hours you want.

    Cons

    Not every co worker likes to do their side work but that happens. New management still making new decisions that you'll have to be patient for another month or so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing really just keep focused on how you want things done and keep listening to employees for small tweaks that may help
