    I worked at Red Robin part-time

    Pros

    The people that work there are generally friendly and welcoming. Your work schedule is fairly flexible and I never had a problem requesting days off when it was done far enough in advance.

    Cons

    Can be a very stressful environment when the kitchen is slow and the restaurant is packed. Since the menu is fairly cheap the tips are not very high.

    I have been working at Red Robin (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My teammates are awesome and Management is very proactive, and supportive. Everyone looks out for one another.

    Cons

    The schedule typically isn't posted until two days before it starts.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the training program. Implement more incentives.

    I have been working at Red Robin part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with some great people and you're all basically one big dysfunctional family together. It's a great place.

    Cons

    While I do love my coworkers. Management can be a bit out there at times. Like hiring 6 servers in 3 weeks and 0 hosts... But you complain about needing Hosts for months on end.

    I worked at Red Robin (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy money when serving and time was very flexible.

    Cons

    It gets to the point where management starts to nickel and dime and starts to care more about the bottom line rather than employees.

    Pros

    The money is great and the place is always busy! Beside the typical drama of a bunch of college kids it's a great place to work!

    Cons

    Management can be tools sometimes and working with college kids gets real aggravating real quick. Other than that it's a pretty good place to make money.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your team, happy employees reverberates to happy customers. My experience with management was really good though.

    Pros

    I have been working for Red Robin for 8 years now and I love it here. The atmosphere is great, my management is amazing.

    Cons

    There are no real cons, like every job you can't help the people you work with or the people who come in.
