    Negative Outlook

    I worked at P.F. Chang's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - You work with great people
     - The food is discounted during your shift
     - PF Chang's are usually in malls, so you can always return those jeans that didn't fit right on one of your breaks
     - The money isn't too bad

    Cons

    - I found that the hardest workers were often times the most exploited
     - Servers are valued above all else, and the process to become a server seems silly and biased

    I didn't stay at PF Chang's long enough to pursue a role as a server (a role I was more than capable of handling), but in my short time there I did observe that the process seems strongly biased and very political. Which is unfortunate, because many times the hardest working individuals were not the ones who would end up getting the opportunity, and serving is really where all the money is at in a place like this.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a more easily discernible career trajectory to those who show interest in moving up, and don't let personal biases drive your decision making process.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I can't think of any reasons to work for them. I saved a butt load of money eating for free though. Some of front of the house employees were cool too.

    Cons

    Everything. Especially the managers. One of the managers tried to set me up. The sous chef was a douche bag. Working at PF Chang's left a bad taste in my mouth towards the food service industry

    Advice to Management
