    I worked at P.F. Chang's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    P.F. Chang's provides strong internal structure, as well as clearly outlined training procedures. The emphasis on customer service can be felt from the top-down; corporate and mid-level management alike encourage and support consistent service behavior. The product is average, but employees at most locations are taught to deliver above-average to excellent service. Expect flexible scheduling and manageable workloads (unless you reach management level). There are opportunities to move up, though few would recommend it.

    Cons

    Managers work long hours (50-60 hours a week at my location); compensation is decent overall but seemingly not worthwhile for the workload (high turnover rate supports this idea). Supervisors are poorly compensated; many return to their service positions (server, bartender) because the tips outweigh both the added hourly wage and the benefit of the experience. As stated above, product is average (at best), but this is to be expected in a chain restaurant that is interested in selling its product for a reasonable price to as wide a range of customers as possible.

    Corporate can be a little bit of a nightmare to deal with sometimes

    Give more recognition to employees for their good work and ideas.
