    Pros

    Great area, great product, good shifts, great money, family oriented, offer nice insurance!

    Cons

    They do not take problems w management seriously, allow some managers to be abusuce and play with your shifts based on who they liked even after talking with them and bringing everything to their attention. Politics as usual and favoritism rampant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put yourselves in everyone's shoes, get out of reports and numbers and treat people as you'd want to be treated. Hire and promote mature managers

    Pros

    Great teamwork, and training. The money was good....usually.

    Cons

    Demanding, constant busy work, never appreciated. Too many demands made for a less than minimum employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If corporate is demanding too much of your time, and doesn't appreciate the hard work and sales. Quit. But don't make the staff suffer .

    I worked at Red Robin

    Pros

    It is very team oriented from the Red Robin care that allocates money to team-members who have suffered a health problem to what they teach on the floor.
    Also did not feel limited in position. As long as you work hard, you can make it to any position.
    Management understood peoples limits and accommodated. They also had friendly competitions.

    Cons

    The location I worked at did not give good tips and had some walk outs.
