    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.

  8. "Great managers, better coworkers"

    Pros

    Flexible hours, managers are friendly and pretty lax. Smoke breaks, and free meal for heart of house workers.

    Cons

    Very high turnover rate, we couldn't keep a dishwasher for longer than a month. Work is easy, but almost nonstop. Very busy location

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better, MIKE!
