I have been working at BJ's Restaurants part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The employees are easy to get along with. The money is good for the amount of work you do.

Cons

Food will sometimes come out wrong or not in a timely matter which upsets your customers.
It's a very fast pace and demanding job. You will l feel very stressed out during a busy night/day.

Advice to Management

Make sure your employees aren't too stressed out or over worked, this will only burn them out.

    I have been working at BJ's Restaurants part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff's friendly and the managers are nice. They also have really good food.

    Cons

    The tips average 10% no matter what you do, sometimes worse than that to nothing at all. The cutting and breaking is terrible and chaotic, the managers get stressed too easily, the kitchen is really slow, and it just doesn't seem like anyone knows what they're doing and we, the servers, get blamed and tipped badly for it, and we're already getting bad tips because half the customers don't understand a good tip from a bad one. I feel like a robot and the guests probably think so too with our introduction and "steps of service"
