    Great food. Great kitchen staff. Great place to manage

    Need to find a concept and stick with it. Couponing all the time is not a concept

    Same as the con. Update the restaurants that need it and get a concept.

    Pros

    RT is one of the top companies..solid. Great guidelines, rules. I went to work for them just for this reason. Also as a server the least side work of any restaurant. They have streamlined so many processes. Love the online scheduling option they have developed!

    Cons

    High turnover ( typical for the industry), long hours ( I once worked as the only bartender for a month when two of my trainees quit-Corp Management was amazing and gave me recognition for my 90 hrs weeks) Not everyone likes the rules.. Bartenders don't free pour,, There is a standard check off list that many reject ( but I loved!)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, your job is tough! This a great company..it has been great and it can be greater!

    Pros

    Awesome work environment. Great opportunity for advancement. Learned about, understood, and managed ALL areas of the restaurant.

    Cons

    Pay of an Assistant Manager was low, but to be expected.
    Insurance was very expensive... even back then.
    Hard work, long hours... with no time for family.

    Advice to Management

    I was disappointed to see how RT has changed from the restaurant it was to the hamburger joint it is today. If I were in charge, I would revert back to the original business model. It was not broken... why did you try to "fix" it.
