    Pros

    Fun environment, good people to work around, decent pay. Great experience for future ventures and as a job to have while in school. My location was extremely flexible with schedule that promoted an atmosphere I wanted to work in.

    Cons

    Restaurant clientele , corporate focus takes away from guests dining experience when you have to try and push too much at them at once.

    Advice to Management

    Focus as much on developing team members as you do focusing on numbers to meet your bonuses.

    Money depends on how business is going. Break time can vary depending on how busy its is. Job can be easy or very hard at times.

    Pros

    Red robin was my first serving job. I was with the company for almost 5 years. I really loved this job. Super easy to make great money. Fast and easy way to move up with an amazing company.

    Cons

    Management was always too busy to help, I don't know if it was because we were always under staffed or what so it could be very stressful when you're having to do everything and nobody is there to help you.

    Advice to Management

    The Bakersfield location is DISGUSTING very unsanitary. I transferred there and it was horrible I had too quit. Corporate needs to check this store out. Other then that, I loved and miss working for such an amazing company.

    Pros

    The money is good. The corporate goals seem to be reasonable. The staff I worked with was young but willing to learn.

    Cons

    no vacation. could not switch cocktail shifts with anybody else except a few people per managements requirements.

    Advice to Management

    I think management is doing there best under the circumstances placed on them by corporate. the location I worked at was in a tourist area.

    Pros

    Opportunity to advance. Great for first serving job. Better if you are looking for leadership roles.

    Cons

    Money is mediocre if you are supporting a family

    Advice to Management

    Consider hiring server assistance or having bussers on every shift. It is unfair to ask the servers to wear so many hats.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, great sense of teamwork among coworkers, management and corporate are wonderful and take the time to show they actually care about their staff.

    Cons

    Most locations employ several employees so the scheduling system can be extremely frustrating. Also, you have to sell a certain amount of drinks per guest number and receive "guest voice" from tables.
