    I have been working at Red Robin

    Pros

    The crew yout work with is great. The money can be good depending on location. But you have to really have a good section.

    Cons

    Small sections for servers. The managers could truly care less about you. They are only concerned with keeping their jobs and getting a bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's the servers that make or break a restaurant. Listen to them. Visit the stores. Hear their stories. Stop protecting the managers st the expense of losing good employees

    I worked at Red Robin full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Made great money off tips as a server. Hours were pretty good. fellow servers were wonderful and like family. there wasn't much else that was good.

    Cons

    lack of respect, corporate was tereible, inconsistent on rules so some had to follow them but others didn't. fired some people for no good reason while others just couldn't get fired. guests were not very nice due to area. kitchen staff was great some days and others it caused a great loss of money due to not putting quality food out. some back of the house employees would get arrested for sexual battery for example and the management would hide it from servers, very uncomfortable workplace. worst job I ever had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CONSISTENCY. don't hire felons that don't do their jobs then refuse to fire them, but fire your good hard workers that cared about the restaurant.

    Pros

    Managers are extremely focused only on the bottom line. Family oriented like the worst thanksgiving ever! Mostly flexible schedule. Servers are good. Trainers are mostly friendly

    Cons

    Horrible management. They don't take care of their employees AT ALL. They view everyone as a number. Extremely high "turn-over" rate. They'll ask favor after favor but as soon as you need something it's almost like it's a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the managers and become a company that cares about employees not just the bottom line.

    Pros

    easy job, flexible with schedule, friendly atmosphere, good place to start a serving job, they will hire you even if you have no experience.

    Cons

    terrible management, mainly hired good looking girls, more concerned with what employees were doing then how the restaurant was.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    maybe it would be a better place to work if the general manager wasn't focused on harassing all of the female employees and trying to sleep with them all of the time.

    Pros

    Salaries are good, communication is acceptable. Cleanest restaurants out there. Great health and safety practices. Management training process is rigorous but worth it.

    Cons

    Franchise and corporate don't work together well. Lack of corporate support for franchisees. Growth potential great but only at corporate stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved in training.

    Pros

    The staff is great, The restaurnt is busy. Restaurnat managers are awesome and understanding.

    Cons

    Top management pressures restaurant management to meet certain numers that they are constantly changing which stresses everyone out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay constant with numbers rather than constantly changing numbers to hit all the time. It makes work stressful and not enjoyable to go to
