    I worked at Red Robin (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working for Red Robin! They are a motivated company with constant changes to the menu, their management is strong and organized, you can make great money there without feeling too overwhelmed because everyone works on a team member basis.

    Cons

    It is a team player restaurant so it is important for everyone to pull their weight otherwise you may have to pick up other team members slack. Working doubles is common for Red Robin so you may see a lot of 12 hour shifts on your feet all day. However the money is worth it.

    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.

    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.
