    I worked at P.F. Chang's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The menu is always changing .... all product is made fresh daily.... there is room for advancement and programs for leaders among servers.. easy to transfer if u relocate

    Cons

    Like all restaurants, servers are asked to do more and more... bussing their own tables etc... they need more customer service help for how busy Chang's is

    Advice to Management

    Don't let customer service falter and managers need to help on floor

    I worked at P.F. Chang's part-time

    Pros

    Wonderful place to work that teaches many different things. From spices, to just looking at food being tossed in the wok, to sampling and tasting lost of food. It really increased my customer service skills and taught me how to smile no matter what an old angry confused lady is screaming at you.

    Cons

    The environment changes depending on who is working and what managers are working. So the quality of the shift my change varying to that and also the quantity and quality of the people encounter that day.

    Advice to Management

    Different with every area, but mine where too friendly and sometime werent really managers. More like friends with power and its a problem sometimes. Makes it ten times more enjoyable to work there though
