    Pros

    Discount food. Decent medical coverage,steady business. Good resume builder at a well known business. Fast paced work environment So the day goes by quickly.

    Cons

    Fast paced work environment with little time for down time to take regular breaks. Demands speed and coordination to keep up with the work load. No set shIft. Rotating scheduleand your hours end only when the manager says you may leave.

    Advice to Management

    Dont play favorites and remember it is not management versus employees. We are all part of one team Working together to accomplish the same goal.

    Pros

    Family-like work place, fast paced and energized.

    Cons

    The managers make or break the experience. Over the course of the years there has been more leniency that makes holding other co-workers responsible, hard.

    Advice to Management

    If you set standards, hold people to them. Consistency is key.

    Pros

    Its like any other serving job. Cash in your pocket every day/night.

    Cons

    The company went sour after it went public. Mangers seemed more worried about money than quality of service. The wrong way seems to be their right way. Health and safety codes broken everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking about your pockets and start thinking about your employees. "Set up for success." Seemed its only set up for failure. Its not the same company I was proud to work at a few years ago.

    Pros

    Working with a team that makes you part of the family is amazing. The work environment is so great. Being able to switch shift as need was also a big plus.

    Cons

    The slow days are a little boring but even when cleaning we still have fun.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what your doing

    Pros

    Family Meal (if they even still do it)

    Cons

    Managers that don't care, employees that don't care, rude customers. Went from high end casual to an Asian themed Red Robin. Families, coupon clippers, and screaming babies

    Advice to Management

    When it comes to a business model, quantity in NOT better than quality. Dropping standards to get people in the door, makes your staff worse, which in turn, makes your customers worse.

    Pros

    Our store is great. We have good, well trained people, who deliver great service. We also have good relationships with other stores around us. The culture is important at this location.

    Cons

    Not much growth past store management. Pay is under comps in the area. Expected work hours are not conducive to raising a family.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get so entangled in the numbers. A great store is a great store because of the people. Work hard to keep those people.

    Pros

    Good place to work at. Winter Park store is very busy. Like to promote people within the company

    Cons

    Can be long hours. Lots of promoting inside the company rather than outsiders. Can be long hours.
