    I worked at Red Robin part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Easy money, busy on weekends, some managers were hard workers and decent people

    Cons

    Co-workers at the specific location I worked at, no set or followed rules or norms (I was told of multiple ways to do one thing while being trained, depending on who was training me. There seemed to be no set standard which got really frustrating really quickly). Also I hated the split shifts they had me on (go in from 11AM-2PM, leave and come back for a 5PM-10PM shift).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some kind of guidelines and specific ways to do things (such as how hot tea is served, how to garnish the drinks and burgers) and make sure that they are taught and enforced.

    I have been working at Red Robin full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The discount is great, you will probably get a lot of hours

    Cons

    Sometimes too many hours, no breaks, it gets very busy, the managers can only do so much at once, the scheduling is a nightmare, sometimes you'll come in and work 8 hours, sometimes 2.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to scheduling and your doubles for the day.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, values, and goals. I love the company and its goals.

    Cons

    The management is rude sometimes. Issues with scheduling and asking off. Awkward in and out times. Management can't seem to hire good workers recently, either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove your managers from this store. One can't speak to guests well, the other can't handle the pressure. There is only one that is good.
