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

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money if you're good at your job.

    Cons

    The management on all levels is dreadful, and shows a lack of basic thinking skills at times. They create an environment that is somewhat reminiscent of a high school. in house hiring is very uncommon, HR is virtually useless.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management: Get. In. To. Your. Stores. Pay attention to the people that truly do the hard work, and not just the people that hangout with your management team. I worked in multiple stores and multiple states, and no matter where I went, the management creates an environment that promotes favoritism, and hurts your hard working employees.

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

    Pros

    great food, good employee discount + family discount. coworkers are decent to work with.

    Cons

    LOW HOURS. no matter how many times i beg them for more hours i don't get any. i only have this ONE job. and if given the hours i WILL work them.

    Advice to Management

    STOP hiring hosts and give hours to the people that are currently hired in that position. and stop cutting shifts early due to "LOW" business. i have been cut early so many times just for business to pick up heavily 25 minutes later as im doing outwork and getting ready to leave

    I worked at Red Robin part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If u want to be lazy about restaraunt sidework I definitely advise to do so. You will not be acknowledged for keeping the place up. In fact it's embarazmssing to have customers think that's your fault when you take over a section at

    Cons

    They pay no attention to your availability will work u from open to close without a break & if u try to eat something during shift u get yelled at. I'm already a small person but I went from 120lbs to under 109in the past year from starving, working doubles & stressing from management threatening to get rid of me if I don't sell a certain amount of royalty memberships, Bev's apps & desserts,ECT so they can get their bonuses

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees & you might get more effort from them naturally without having to threaten them

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

    Pros

    Worked there for almost 2 years. Got plenty of hours. Some nice people.

    Cons

    Management was terrible, and treats people like dirt,, they gave virtually no training. Expect a million things out of you at once and nothing is ever good enough.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up, it's just a job. Maybe this is a career to some, but for the rest of us, this job is a dime a dozen.

    good people around my age group the early to mid 20s, that's about it

    hours are horrible and they expect you to do so many things by yourself like you have a clone or something.

    Pros

    Competitive pay and flexible hours

    Cons

    Disorganized, incompetent untrained management, inconsistent food handling procedures, blatant labor law violations. This has to be one of the weakest management teams ever assembled in a corporate restaurant environment from the inappropriate music that's blaring throughout the kitchen that carries racial undertones.

    Advice to Management

    Learn people management skills. Respect is earned not given. Just because you can cook a hamburger or a piece of chicken does not constitute one as being a manager.

    Pros

    The food. That's pretty much it

    Cons

    Terrible management. No teamwork. Unfair wages. No recognition or appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and work with your employees. Don't pick favorites.
