    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

    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

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

    I have been working at P.F. Chang's full-time

    Pros

    Still a great concept with high quality product and a lot of passionate employees.

    Cons

    New management has gutted the corporate office of all visionary leadership talent and ruined morale and productivity. Literally nothing new or innovative coming from corporate to shift the tide. Arrogant and unqualified executives at the helm.

    Advice to Management

    Swallow your pride and listen to your employees and leverage their experience to make the right business decisions to turn around the business. We're on a sinking ship.
