I have been working at Cheesecake Factory full-time (More than a year)

Pros

None. Place was ok until the management switched.

Cons

Since the switch in management employees are not given a chance to earn their living. Management reduced the amount of tables given to the server. The official reason was "to increase customer satisfaction" The majority of people quit due to reduction in wage and new people were hired to replace them. Everyone is pissed on the current system, one can be called upon to work for 2-3 hours per day earning $15. This is worse than McDonalds where people earn steady wages. Also server has to do side work which he is getting paid $2-$3/hr after taxes those two bucks are not making it to paychecks, so you are practically paying for doing work for them. Just stay away from this place!

Advice to Management

Hire competent smart people, instead of your golf buddies. You are hurting the company by hiring people that don't know anything about management and business in general. This comes from MBA student.

    I have been working at Cheesecake Factory full-time

    Pros

    Not many, There's air conditioning. On occasion, if it's busy enough you can actually make ok money however, there is no consistency whatsoever.

    Cons

    Many, $2.83 per hour w/no chance of a raise. A guarantee that no matter what it is management doesn't care about your problem.

    Advice to Management

    Avarice is the plight of mankind. The lack of any consistency from the kitchen is a joke. Pay your employees an appropriate wage and treat them w/respect.
