    Pros

    It is all about teamwork! There is help to ensure all employees succeed.

    Cons

    As with every serving gig there is the downside of serving that once in a blue moon guest who does not know how to speak to you like you are a human being.

    Keep up the communication.

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

    Pros

    The pay was okay and they hired me on the spot.

    Cons

    I only worked here for a little over a month because I was moving. But I quit early because this job was not very good. I was interviewed as a waiter and hired as a dishwasher, with no say in the matter. I needed a job quick so i took it. They didnt tell me that I would be working until at least 3am every night, and they paid you on this weird US bank card and wouldn't direct deposit me.

    Advice to Management

    Help the workers so that we can close earlier!
