    Pros

    Worked for Changs for 10 years. Was awesome for the first couple of years but things have been slowly imploding and getting further and further away from its former glory and culture.

    Cons

    Way too many "TPS" reports. Operating standards change daily from the ivory towers due to continual upper management turnover. The concept has turned into a math equation.

    Advice to Management

    Some consistency

    Not enough hours or pay wasn't worth how much work was brought into the job. Not enough time to prep food and prepare food to be cookex

    Corporate keeps changing everything. That means the changes they made before were wrong.

    I worked at P.F. Chang's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy money and works around your schedule especially if you're going to school. The best part of work is the people you work with, however it is like any other restaurant and dealing with the guest can sometimes be a hassle.

    Cons

    Management isn't always up to standard and there isn't much opportunity to move up unless you play politics. Not worth the effort especially for a part time job that has no real career prospects. They do not reward seniority or loyalty but rather who can kiss the most butt.

    Pros

    I helped open the PF Changs at the Ann Arbor, MI location. I've never had such a supportive group of managers who are willing to help you through your personal and work problems. We all grew into a little family and it has been a pleasure working not only for the company but for this specific locations.

    Cons

    Every restaurant jobs has its cons; for this new location, things are still a bit unorganized. The training for a new branch requires a lot of overtime for its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they matter and we will put in the same effort at work.

  9. Hard work. Fair pay

    Pros

    The scheduling and request are all done on line.

    Cons

    Management sucks, lots of cruising and arguing

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to understand and listen to employees. Its been a long time since we have had raises and evaluations.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Servers make great money. Mateos if service makes the guest happy.

    Cons

    When the kitchen goes down the front of the house gets blamed. People will complain about anything but that's the industry
