    I have been working at Red Robin

    Pros

    Schedules are very flexible. I go to school part-time and manage my home/work life while not overloading myself. Management is very laid back.

    Cons

    Tips are sometimes on the lighter side. Business is best around the holidays and in January. Some nights are under-staffed since the staffing is done based on how busy it was that particular day, last year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes it is hard to find managers when we need help or get very busy on the floor. We also have recently lost our break room due to "not using it", which is a bogus reason.

    Red Robin truly is a people company. In the food industry, focusing on people (their own and Guests). They believe in developing their teams.

    I worked at Red Robin

    Pros

    I enjoyed working here. Good summer job while home from college. People were fun, helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    I realized the restaurant industry wasn't for me, as i quickly got overwhelmed by seating large crowds in a short period of time. But everyone was helpful and understanding as I was new.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, training was good and management is very approachable.
