I worked at Texas Roadhouse part-time

Pros

Wonderful food, wonderful mission statement.

Cons

Low hours, customer:server ratio is getting smaller and smaller, childish staff (plays in front of customers), manager favortisim, staff partying with each other and if a staff chose to opt out they were given lousy sections and written up for anything possible ie: dropped glass and broke it. These are just a few.

Advice to Management

The managing partner should keep up the great work, but all of the other management staff sould work on focusing on priorities, not trying to party with staff and guests.

    I have been working at Texas Roadhouse part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    30% employee discount on food, flexible scheduling, opportunity for promotion, blue jeans and t-shirt uniform, line dancing, and employer pays for break food for those working double shifts.

    Cons

    If you call in to work, expect a to-go shift (even with a doctor's work excuse). If you are just a few minutes late for your shift, expect a to-go shift. Working a to-go shift is a significant pay cut compared to serving. Also, some of the managers (service managers) are very rude to employees for no reason at all.

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving to-go shifts to those who are ill or have unforeseen circumstances to where it is impossible to make it in to work that day (such as a death in the family). Hire more than one person designated to working these undesirable shifts.
