    I worked at Applebee's full-time

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility. Great employees great guests.

    Cons

    ASI changes things too frequently for store level employees to properly implement in their constant methodology of staying current.

    Advice to Management

    Remember your own saying: it's just burgers and beer.

    I worked at Applebee's (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good place to gain real world, and restaurant experience. I learned quite a bit, and was able to take that knowledge and experience, and apply it elsewhere.

    Cons

    Later hours than other restaurants. Some of the clientele were less than desirable, which sometimes made the money not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people working for you in the trenches. They might surprise you with their feedback, or opinions on the inner workings of the place.

    You're never broke because you can take your tips home.

    I worked at Applebee's part-time

    Pros

    WESTSIDE- GREAT GM.......some employees
    Fairfield- none...the store is a WRECK starting from the leader all the way down

    Cons

    sorry raises...no team work from other cooks...stop hiring kids...hire adults...they tend to care more...get rid of dead weight instead of having a "body"

    Advice to Management

    check out the cooks stations before they leave...act like you care at least (lie) if you have to about trying to get them raises...better raises instead of .25 every six months i could be here all night!!

    I worked at Applebee's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    cash in-hand every shift, a good reference for other server jobs, opportunity to strengthen your skills, employee food discount, basic and simple menu

    Cons

    way too much work expected of the servers. you bus your own tables, roll your own silverware, a lot of people come in just to take advantage of the half-price apps. you tip the hosts just to seat you, not to help bus your tables which seems backwards to me since i thought the company paid them an hourly wage to seat the restaurant...

    Advice to Management

    stop changing the specials all the time. try to avoid the favoritism with the sections with the servers and split up the good tables evenly.

    I worked at Applebee's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The local staff is amazing, and very friendly.

    Cons

    Management only cares about impressing higher ups, and the higher ups have a terrible way of motivating teams.

    Advice to Management

    Learn more about your employees, and stop trying to impress your boss. Impress your employees, and work from there.
