    I worked at Red Robin part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Awesome management.
    -Welcoming and team-oriented atmosphere.
    -Pay is solid. Tip-out is fair and servers are compensated if they don't at least make minimum wage from tips (which they will.)

    Cons

    -Sometimes closing can be an incredibly drawn out process.
    -As a busser, we were in VERY early, and VERY late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take-out could definitely use improvement. The mixo is often far too busy to be dealing with phone orders, while there are often 2-3 hosts just standing there that should be learning the menu.

    Pros

    Some pros is this company has continued to remain goal and people oriented throughout its steady and rapid growth. Each restaurant strives to uphold the beliefs of its' core values.

    Cons

    As with any restaurant the best training is the on the floor experience however training can take over a month, which is excessive OVERKILL!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be receptive to all feedback no matter whom it may stem from.

    I worked at Red Robin

    Pros

    Met some great people, GM was the best boss I have ever worked for. Nice flexibility in scheduling, and family like atmosphere.

    Cons

    Corporate can make this job a nightmare, and threaten your income if you do not meet harsh metrics...if guests order water, or don't want want to fillout a survey you will have shifts reduced, receive extra side work. Kids meals count against your check average...in a kid oriented restaurant. The job can be very stressful, and physically demanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change focus back to if the guests are happy, some guests just don't want a tower of onion rings and a milkshake with their burger.
