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

Pros

Huge growth opportunities, new restaurant openings throughout the country. The future is very bright. The pay is higher then most in the industry

Cons

Late hours, heavy work load. The pizza slash sports bar style restaurant creates some late and long hours. Once you get that part down it is great!

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

    Pros

    Pretty good area money was good if you were on the floor

    Cons

    Management was unfair. A lot of favoritism they wouldn't acknowledge a good worker and give everything to the ones that didn't deserve it.. Made a lot of good servers that opened that restaurant leave. just very unprofessional even the general manager

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting the power get to your head

    I worked at BJ's Restaurants part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    learned how to work a cash register , how to communicate efficiently with guests, how to work with a sense of urgency and be on my toes, learned to multitask, worked with my school schedule well and always gave me time off when i needed it (for the most part)

    learned customer service skills i can use in any job and met alot of people through it that i love

    Cons

    physically and mentally tiring, having to wait on people and do tedious and mundane tasks at times, and feeling like i was not appreciated for the work i did, and also feeling like i could be easily replaced. corporate rules and regulations made it safe but also was annoying at times all the things we had to adhere to. not very personal. managers made it better though. most.

    Advice to Management

    advice to my GM!! try and connect more and make an effort with your employees!! maybe theyll stick around longer if you try!!!
