    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.

    Pros

    Worked at Applebee’s for 7 years. Started as a server, moved up to bartender and neighborhood expert. Offers flexible schedule but be prepared for the possibility of gruels late nights.

    Cons

    Half price apps have got to go. No more dollar drinks. Turnover is high.
