    Pros

    Well-known company, great traffic, diverse and customizable menu, discounts from various companies for employees of RR, rapidly expanding company, lots of regular customers so there's always money coming in, competitive, fast-paced, good money. Great tight-knit staff. Many great, extremely dedicated managers.

    Cons

    High manager turn-over rate! Very focused on Royalty memberships and sales numbers and if your numbers aren't great, your schedule will get cut, so if you aren't into competitive sales and upselling this is not the job for you. Run out of supplies often. Often under-staffed, often stretched thin. The team you are given and the management is EVERYTHING, and it can make or break your experience.

    Advice to Management

    More accountability for the team members who aren't doing their jobs.

    Pros

    They can teach you anything you need to be the best at any restaurant you go to. I had no knowledge and I learned everything here now I can go anywhere and make money in a restaurant.

    Cons

    If you get caught up in the politics you can really bring yourself down emotionally about your job. There's a lot of personalities to handle at once.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on training and hiring the best and most positive team members and preserve th RR culture.


  6. Very friendly atmosphere and easy money to make.

    Pros

    Honestly, im very much of a people person so the best part of the job is the new people i meet. My boss provides constant encouragement to push me to succeed. They give me all the shifts I want as well.

    Cons

    The cons would probably be the constant manager and staff turnover. It is also difficult to get other team members to work together.

    Pros

    I really only liked some of the people working there. It can sometimes be fun. They do let you move up to different positions.

    Cons

    The servers are rude and they think they rule the place. Management sucks they don't care about their staff. Don't ever be a hostess there. They also cut your hours in the winter. I now do a job that involves working with people all the time and because one of their servers said something they said I was to intimidating. If that was so I would not have the job I do now. I have been at my current job for over a year.

    Advice to Management

    Teach your servers better and to have courtesy to the hostess.

    Pros

    You would make good money on the weekends. During the summer seemed to be the best time to be employees here.

    Cons

    Long hours, management could be difficult about scheduling, high turn over rate, worked with a lot of people who did not want to be apart of this company
