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

Pros

Great People, decent tips most of the time, management stays in the background unless you need help. This place gets a lot of business most of the time (weekends) so their is the potential to make a decent buck. Side-work is manageable. Great money on closing and mid shifts.

Cons

Tendency to hire to many people = shift cuts after your 2nd table. Management plays favorites and one has a superiority complex. Typical, if higher than average paying, restaurant jobs with good and bad customers. Due to overstaffing hours tend to be hard to get, especially for new hires. They also tend to overstaff the food-running position so you will be making low to decent pay for running your butt off and closing.

Advice to Management

Stop playing favorites, shift cut more proactively.

    I worked at Cheesecake Factory full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    High quality of work force and attention to detail in most situations. Higher level of restaurant as compared to most family dining restaurants.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities were not as described, relating to who you knew rather than performance. The high volume led to short cuts in quality at times.

    Advice to Management

    Become more actively involved with the staff rather than looking only at numbers.
