    I worked at Applebee's full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Usually a friendly customer base

    Cons

    They will tell you over $40k a year to start. But it is hourly and depends on working 50 hours a week with 10 overtime. The salary is also based on always getting monthly bonuses which the targets are made so the management either gets none a month or much lower than you were told at hiring. Easy for you cooks and other employees to be making more than management. Very expensive benefits. No sick days or vacation days for a year. So if you get sick and miss a few days your paycheck is in half. High turnover of managers.
