    I have been working at BJ's Restaurants full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, with good people. Good benefits, and a meal on your shift. Plus discounts.

    Cons

    Management doesn't know what they are doing. Scheduling is horrible, Labor hours are huge thing to them so management puts more work on every one else.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing the schedule after posting it. Work with the team don't just wonder around aimlessly and play on your phones.
