    I worked at T.G.I. Friday's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no Pros for this company. From the lack of training, to the way the employees discriminate against all minorities whom come into the restaurant, this is the worse restaurant in existence.

    Cons

    Employees' steal from customers by faking charges on customers bills. Employees talk very negatively about customers especially Blacks and Hispanics. Managers lie about the true life time of foods and drinks with-in the restaurants that is being served to the customers. Work environment is hostile to all the managers and crew whom are trying to do the right thing.

    Advice to Management

    Look out for the upcoming months of total exposure coming your way from taped conversation, health department visits, former and current employee's exposing your deceiving ways of running your business etc.

    Pros

    A fun almost family like setting. It used to be a great team work environment but that was years ago.

    Cons

    The managers need more cross training so they can actually help. Training has gone down hill over the years

    Advice to Management

    Do the job you are being paid to do.

    I worked at T.G.I. Friday's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The money wasn't awful for me, it averaged a little more than $20 an hour, and the girls who were cute and young made closer to $25-30 an hour. The benefit was that most of it came from cash

    Cons

    Waiters and waitresses alike were usually annoyed with management, bartenders, the kitchen. Cooks were often problematic and causing issues to grief employees that they didn't like

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to care about their employees first if they want them to be the forward facing aspect of the company towards customers

    Pros

    It was a fun environment, the food was really good, great selection. The drinks are great too. It attracts all types of people. It was good initial serving experience.

    Cons

    My store wasn't the cleanest, the uniforms could be more professional. closing means your there until 3 am. You definitely want to work in an area with a good demographic.

    Advice to Management

    I think the two week computer training wasn't nearly as helpful as the hands on training I received at the end of the online stuff. More hands on would be nice.
