    I have been working at Red Robin part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Red Robin is good corporate restaurant to work at. It's very busy with an overall pretty good clientele.

    Cons

    It is a very corporate restaurant and everything must be "Red Robin" standard which can become tedious.

    Advice to Management

    The management team is starting to work really nicely together as a team and the new GM has been doing a great job communicating with the rest of the staff and following through with his plans.

    I have been working at Red Robin part-time

    Pros

    Free steak fries!! Coworkers where awesome, even hung out with a few outside of work. Management was cool, very fun to work with, and gave constructive criticism and advice to make you/your job better/easier.

    Cons

    Pay - the pay was well below the industry standard

    I worked at Red Robin full-time

    Pros

    I have had many great teams during my time at RR, including management.

    Cons

    Inconsistency of management is an issue. Micromanagement is one of the biggest issues that I have had, but it is hard to recognize whether they are a true fit to the collective culture right away.

    Advice to Management

    Some people are just not capable of effective team leadership, really look for the positive attributes when selecting candidates.

    I have been working at Red Robin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Keeps you very busy, they care about you. Training is really good, giving you all tools needed. Even after training you still have another 90 days. Get 2 days off per week.

    Cons

    Work 10-12 hours. After the 10th you are very tired. Coming up with too many coupons is not always good.

    Advice to Management

    To work 10 hours a day will be very nice, specially in a busy restaurant.

    I have been working at Red Robin part-time

    Pros

    Quick and easy money, the shifts are short and the clientele usually tips well as long as you give them good service.

    Cons

    The management is extremely biased and has the restaurant overstaffed, so most servers only get about 3 shifts a week.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, Career advancement oppritunities.

    Cons

    Stressful, Busy environment. Sometimes i don't get my breaks for hours. I wasnt fully trained before i was thrown into a rush by myself, with management nowhere to be seen.

    Advice to Management

    Have more cooks during the day. It's busier than they think it is. Train your cooks more before you throw them into the kitchen by themselves.
