    Pros

    The Area Director didn't mind helping when busy.

    Cons

    They are trying to save money by cutting benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Think more about the employee's. Cutting out accumulated time off was awful.

    Pros

    Honestly there is not one single reason to work ar Ryan's unless you are in severe need of a job

    Cons

    There is no appreciation for anything you do. I have been told by my area director that it doesn't matter what you have done for this company it matters what you are doing for the company now. They are always cutting labor and changing the menu for the worst and then wonders why people stop coming in. I can't count how many times guest would complain about no variety on the hot bar. I would not recommend anyone to work for this company unless you are desperate. 6 day work weeks are always threatened and I guarantee you will be stuck in a position because labor will be cut.

    Advice to Management

    They won't listen but apreciating every once in a while would be great. Stop cutting the menu and then wondering why guest count is down. Stop cutting labor and blaming managers for bad operations. I don't know one single manager who is happy to work for Ryan's

    Pros

    -Management was overall friendly and helpful

    Cons

    -Employees besides the managers have attitude problems -Diswashing and trash duties tended to pile up and it became increasingly obvious that you were doing a two person job by yourself -The pace was breakneck

    Advice to Management

    Try to reign in the attitudes of your employees more and promote a more positive atmosphere.

    Pros

    It's a place where you can go and have a healthy full course meal for you and your family. The business is set up to where the food is always fresh , hot and delicious. Teamwork is always a must and they strive to satisfy the customer.

    Cons

    It's a very fast pace job. Safety is always a must because there is always things that can go wrong in any workplace. The things at Ryan's that require safety precautions were replacing trays at the hot bar and being careful not to burn yourself. The slippery floor in the dish room and in the prep room also. But other than that it only requires for you to be nice to all customers.

    Advice to Management

    As a team every employee should always pay attention to those who are not doing team work and those who tries to get away with slacking on the team. It makes the job less confusing when everyone pitches in and does their job.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people. The staff were always like family. I work there almost 6years. I love doing my job. Flexible shifts and hours.I have food inspection training and honestly can say, The food at Ryan's is great☺

    Cons

    Management changed a lot. As soon as the staff and customers got to know each other a different one was hired.

    Advice to Management

    Change is good, just make sure it works before you take away a person job. If at anytime an employee don't do their job,please allow the management to handle those matters.Hey,that's why they are the store manage they are aware of the people they work with.
