I worked at Red Robin part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

As a host, you get to spend a lot of time talking with a developing relationships with your coworkers. It's not a very hard job. There is room for advancing in the restaurant.

Cons

The management at the Garland branch judged you based on their first impression, and that seemed to stick. However, I have heard that they have loosened up a little. It took me a while before they thought that I was a good seating coordinator. The job is pretty stressful when there is a wait. I have heard that business has been slow lately in Garland.

Advice to Management

Let hosts coordinate a few times before you judge their ultimate performance ability.

    I worked at Red Robin part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The tips were good (at least $30 per shift on a slow day), the 50% employee/partial family discount was well appreciated, there was always something to do, the work was straightforward and not difficult at all, the hours were stable and very flexible, and the managers/coworkers were very friendly and approachable.

    Cons

    You would rarely get off when you were scheduled to, as you would leave earlier or later depending on how busy it was, some employees would goof around and add to others' workload.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, and continue recognizing good employees!
