    Worst Communication and Direction Skills

    Pros

    No Pros Available to be Listed

    Cons

    For a company that stresses Open Communication and Clear Direction they certainly give none from the top down. There were often times changes that were made from corporate that were never communicated to the team in operations. You would literally discover a change on the fly in the middle of a busy shift. They made no attempt to create leverage in the hiring environment opting to do open door events instead of signing bonuses. Nobody wants to come work for a place that is going to underpay and overwork you. By the time I left my other assistant managers weren't even working their contracted 50 hours or anything close to it. Zero accountability towards other team members let alone the staff they manage.

    Great Place to Work with Really Good Money

    Pros

    Serving at Outback is honestly one of the easiest and most fun ways to make $100+ a night almost every single night you work. Sometimes you can walk out the door with $300 cash in hand just from serving one single Saturday night shift, and that feeling alone can honestly be pretty addicting. And like I said, the job is extremely easy. The main components being customer service, menu knowledge, and learning to roll with the punches (as it is with any restaurant.) It's 100% worth the money, being as the pros definitely come to outway the cons in most cases.

    Cons

    Sometimes a lazier server or two will be hired on and will just inconvenience you in the smallest of ways almost every single shift they work. It's not too hard to put up with, but after a while, not having ice at the drink station because they refused to get it, or having to take one or two completely empty cup racks to the back because they took the last one and didn't do it themselves, or going to get bread for your table and finding none ready due to the fact they never refill it... It'll get on your nerves pretty quickly after a good few weeks of things like that happening over and over again. The only other cons would be the fact that kitchen mess-ups do tend to affect your tips pretty heavily, and they are oftentimes completely out of your control. The best you can do is damage control with the customer when a steak is cooked wrong, or they are unsatisfied with an item for whatever reason. Lastly, some stores have managers that just absolutely do not communicate, or just blatantly should not be managers at all. Which, comes with just about every company every now and then. Like I said, sometimes you just have to be able to roll with the punches. You also will most likely work just about every single holiday, without fail.
