    I worked at Applebee's part-time

    Pros

    The employees were all very kind and welcoming and helpful when necessary

    Cons

    If you don't sell enough perfect margaritas or get enough customer surveys you won't get very good hours

    Don't base scheduling off of perfect margarita sales and surveys as much.
