    Pros

    Casual, fun environment. Solid financials, growing.

    Cons

    Lack of focus. Everything is the highest priority. Too many idea people, not enough implementers.

    Advice to Management

    Set priorities. You can't have everything tomorrow. Think about what you are asking for.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling and good location. I dont know what else there is to say..

    Lots of terrible memories working here. Unstable management and policies, hire way too many servers to get good hours

    All managers should come together to have a standard for rules. Rules varied between managers a lot

    Pros

    The money was great, managers are very fun to work with, commitment to trainin and food safety.

    Cons

    High turnover of employees leading to last minute scheduling issues

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Even though I no longer work there it is the only restaurant I trust because of the strict food safety standards

    Pros

    Coworkers are great, good growth opportunities within the company, and good training available. Red robin certainly prides themselves on giving great training.

    Cons

    Management is very controlling, very strict. Training is strenuous but rewarding. Also, dressing as the bird is never a pleasant experience.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so controlling when it comes to the servers' methods.

    Pros

    Very fast paced and always busy

    Cons

    Underpaid for what is expected and horrible working conditions. Managers are not nice at all and treat everyone like crap.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all of them and get new ones. Treat people better and award the ones who actually work not the ones that suck up.
