    I worked at Applebee's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Family oriented atmosphere among team-mates and regular guests. Fast paced during in-season (during late fall through early spring months). Flexible schedule. Doherty and Applebee's supports non-profit organizations via Fundraising Breakfast.

    Cons

    Minimum wage plus tips, so I recommend a second job to cover living expenses. Slow summer months.
