I worked at Planet Hollywood full-time (More than a year)

Pros

You restaurant gets people in the doors just because its a Planet Hollywood! They are also always in tourist areas, so the ticket prices will always be more that other, non-chain, restaurants. I really liked the management staff that I worked for in NY TIme Square as well. The people were great and I always had a great time.

Cons

I hate the stupid ties! Other than that, I can't complain. The only other down side is that if it is not tourist season, the place is DEAD! Work a lot and save up during the busy times when you are pulling in a lot of money and then just go on a vacation or something.

    I worked at Planet Hollywood full-time

    Pros

    A job that pays a wage. Good insurance benefits that don't cost an arm and a leg.

    Cons

    disorganized in the extreme, Poor leadership, poor training, boasts the fact that they are a private company only because there is no way they could ever be publicly traded, poor SOP's.

    Advice to Management

    take a hard look at the people who are in management positions and truly ask yourself if they are suited for that position, and why they are in that position to begin with

    I worked at Planet Hollywood full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can make great money once you get used to the flow of the restaurant and how to determine which tourist will tip and what not so you can upsell or not. You have to work extremely hard and bus and run food to most of your tables. Be able to handle being sat 4 tables at a time or more during rush!

    Cons

    Tourist trap, bad management, old micros system pos. Long hours!
