    I worked at T.G.I. Friday's part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This job provides great training to create a well rounded, highly knowledgeable, and very higher-able bartender. This includes great customer service, drink knowledge, food service knowledge, etc.

    Cons

    The corporate nature of the business leaves little to the imagination. After working there for 3 years, I was left feeling unfulfilled in terms of career and financial growth.

    I worked at T.G.I. Friday's full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They work around your schedule and it is always easy to pick up or give away shifts. It is a fun place to work with great people. Teamwork is key. If you work hard management will notice and you will receive good shifts and positions

    Cons

    It is the typical serving job, the money/ tips can have seasonal bad months. 2.13 barely covers taxes, you wont get a paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management is awesome. loved all my managers and GM.
