    I have been working at P.F. Chang's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great job flexibility! They offer the application "hot schedules" which makes adding/removing/trading shifts easy. Management has always been more than accommodating to my school schedule as well. Everyone works as a team, and the atmosphere is wholesome.

    Cons

    Only downside comes from corporate level- not in house. There seems to have been some cuts in 'prep work' leaving us without certain ingredients/dishes from time to time.

    It's a highly stressful job because of the restaurants popularity. It can become very tiring and hard to work at. Most popular chain restaurants would be like this
