    I have been working at Outback Steakhouse part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The management at my store's location is very accommodating and flexible with scheduling. There are many opportunities to receive training in different roles at the restaurant. As a hostess, the compensation is good (typically around $13/ hour or even more on weekends).

    Cons

    You often are scheduled for holidays (which is typical for the food service industry).
