    I worked at Red Robin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training for managers. Easy to move up if you are good and you have a good Regional Manager. It’s easier to move up if you work at a store with other quality managers. Working with a bad team will wear on you and the store results will make you look bad.

    Cons

    Bad management teams work positions more then they coach them. Bad managers work positions instead of fixing the problem.

    Some Red Robin servers are lifers. They think they know it all. Put your foot down. They will fight your authority.

    Red Rebin has a large and loyal customer base. In the pass managers have comped their meals after every complaint. The customers are use to getting free food.

    Unlimited fry baskets will drive you crazy. 4 minute cook time with 3 minute shelf life...lol.

    Advice to Management

    Regional managers often hire idiots. Restaurant Managers let line-cooks walk all over them because they are afraid to lose cooks.

    I worked at Red Robin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay is very strong in comparison to other companies. Strong brand that deserves a second chance. Food and look is current and relevant.

    Cons

    Used to be a strong people company. That part of the company is fading fast. The company has been losing its identity over the last 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Need to refocus on what made Red Robin great. People, food and service. It’s fading fast at all levels.
