    Pros

    Great people to work with, managers really cared about employees & guests. Training was great & made the job very easy. Fun laid back atmosphere, yet very fast paced when busy. Managers kept everything running smoothly, even by hopping on expo or running food, they helped in every way they could. Great money if you kept a good additude, some girls would go home with $80 - $100 a night where I was always at least making $100- $150.

    Cons

    The Line dancing, ugggh. & sweeping the peanuts at night was brutal. Lots of sidework, but it's a serving job, what can you expect ?

    Advice to Management

    Change the employee discount to at least 50%

    Pros

    The people who work at Texas Roadhouse are some of the most diverse around. You will be surrounded by people from all different backgrounds and you have the opportunity to learn so much from your coworkers well as the people at your tables.

    Cons

    Some down sides of working here are that you are not allowed to request off. You have a set schedule for your duration of employment there and you are expected to show up to every shift unless another server picks yours up.

    Advice to Management

    The management is great here. They truly care about their servers, hosts, service assistants, and other employees.

    Busy! If you're not used to a crazy busy environment this is not for you. We no longer hire someone as a server at our location unless they have at least a year's experience.
