    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.
