Current Employee - Restaurant Manager in Richmond, VA
Current Employee - Restaurant Manager in Richmond, VA
No opinion of CEO

Pros

With all the locations in the Richmond area there is greater opportunity for relocation and advancement. The medical/benefits package offered is better than most corporate restaurants in this area.

Cons

As a manager; long hours with no compensation for time exceeding fifty hours / week, the hourly labor budget is so low you end up doing all the work yourself, the bonus program is designed to only be hit by stores in high volume areas.

    Pros

    A lot of fun and interesting people either sit in the restaurant or work along side you. Interacting with these people always presents a challenge as well as an opportunity. You get paid to often have a good time. By and large the managers are good people you can relate to.

    Cons

    The biggest downside of working at Applebees is heavily dependent on your clientele. You will literally get a pay cut if the wrong people walk through the door since your pay is by and large determined by tips.

    Advice to Management

    By and large management does an excellent job under the circumstances. The only advice I can give is to remain calm under stressful situations.
