    Pros

    Excellent initial employee training program. High volume restaurant that provides great customer value. Management is very flexible and understanding.

    Cons

    Required to line dance once every hour. While working there I learned four line dances. Not the worst of concerns though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow stronger servers to take on more tables.

    I worked at Texas Roadhouse part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    you can work your way up to being a server from a hostess, and the pay is minimum wage, the hours are good if you are in school or working another job

    Cons

    you have to tip out a lot to the bar and the host stand and still have to pay extra if you don't want to roll your own silverware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire more educated managers

    Pros

    It's honestly a lot of fun.

    Cons

    In ND, they follow the practice of paying "tipped employee" minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay standard minimum wage, and you won't see such high turnover.
