    I have been working at BJ's Restaurants part-time

    Pros

    I work there because i can make great money. I like our food a lot. I love my co workers as well.

    Cons

    The downside to working at Bj's is that there isn't a lot of room for advancement like they originally say.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be chosen based off of how well one can show he has what it takes to manage a restaurant not based off of what their resume says they can do. It takes a special type of person to be able to manage a restaurant.
