    I worked at OSI Restaurant Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The environment before it changed hands was a really great place to work, very upbeat and friendly.

    Cons

    Once the change took place the atmosphere changed and it felt like you had someone behind you at all times. It was like walking on egg shells, stuffy and very negative air.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to treating employees like you want to be treated. Treat them with respect and give people a chance to advance. Don't hold them back because you don't like them and don't want them to succeed.

    I worked at OSI Restaurant Partners full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    None for this company. I am greatful to this website though. Warning others is the best I can do right now.

    Cons

    If you want a promotion you had better be male. Our district had 32 manager positions including general managers. 9 female assistant managers, no female general managers. A company fully aware of its district, general managers inappropriate behavior yet did nothing when complaints were filed.

    Sure they have policies written down in a book for legal purposes. However, the general manager was allowed to change stores to a different region(replaced by a male). The district manager retired. The employees harassed were not acknowledged other than termination. Lawsuit with EEOC still pending, OSI still denying. They even drug their feet on verifying my termination so I could receive unemployment benefits.(healthcare,etc.)

    Dont do the 401k and need to withdraw it. This crack squad will sit on your request for months, literally.

    Corporate leadership changed recently, zero improvement. Congratulations to the $5 billion dollar a year monster that runs freely over its employees without having to own up to their actions.

    I no longer eat anywhere affiliated with this company. Person by person I share these truths. These morally bereft people should not have a right to practice business. Maybe someday they will really be punished by the law.

    Advice to Management

    Quit. All of you executive/corporate representatives. Take the entirety of your last years paychecks and bonuses and pay out to the people you have hurt through your negligence. Then go back to the basics. Work for a living you actually earn. Start at the basement of any of your restaurants and see what its like. Never manage anything ever again. Ever. See how your efforts and 70+ hour work weeks are rewarded. Assuming your replaced with competent personnel you may have a shot at a career yet.

    Please stop insulting people with silly postings about how great you are.

    I worked at OSI Restaurant Partners part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Met new people there's really no other pros to working here I hated working there specially for a year as a high school student

    Cons

    I was over worked as a part time worker and never saw my full profit. They also made bus boys as hostess which messed up the whole restaurant atmosphere "a cut back" but nobody saw the money come in.

    Pros

    Great tips, Great Management, excellent scheduling

    Cons

    Drive for perfection could be a little overbearing at times. Don't expect someone to sell hundreds of dollars in alcohol on prom night, or give happy go lucky service to funeral parties. Not much upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    They know what they're doing.
