    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.

    Pros

    It is quick money with short shifts. Most of the managers are kind and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    It is very unorganized. The kitchen needs to be better at getting out the correct food at appropriate amounts of time. And every table should have a ziosk cause you get better tips.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    It's like most other restaurant jobs you're going to have but they pay was good right as I started. The environment is for the most part great.

    Cons

    It's pretty much like any other restaurant job. The benefits are meh, you don't always know what your schedule is going to be like.

    Advice to Management

    The whole BURGER philosophy seems pretty shallow. That may just be me though.
