    Pros

    You're schedule can be very flexible and the managers will cross train you to be whatever you'd like. You meet a lot of new friends and can always ask for a raise.

    Cons

    There can be drama between co-workers and managers can have attitude. You don't really get payed a lot although and schedules can be rough.

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

    Pros

    High turn over rate, $12-14 average menu item cost, fun atmosphere

    Cons

    Corporate structure, very by the book, your shifts are based on your review and loyalty sign up percentage :( so you can have 5 shifts one week and 2 the next.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give people 2 shifts because no one wanted to sign up for the rewards program...

    I worked at Red Robin part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very fun environment
    Treated like family

    Cons

    Company started moving in a new direction to be more of a "gourmet pub" style restaurant and alienated a lot of the things that made the company great to begin with. Working environment suffered as a result.

    Advice to Management

    They work the General Managers really hard. It would be great to see them not have most of their bonuses related to arbitrary numbers so they could feel comfortable taking some time off. It would allow them to feel more fresh while at work and be more effective both personally and professionals

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

    Pros

    The people you work with are great. Flexible scheduling, good money. Good pay.

    Cons

    Management never stays consistent when it comes to BOH.
    Management also shows favoritism to certain individuals and it's obvious.
     They see employees as replaceable all of them. The company as a whole tends to reward management rather than employees
    Minimal benefits if any
    Have to work a year to receive any benefits including pto.
    Always out of a certain product
    Equipment that is too expensive to fix, doesent get fixed and just sits there broken for months.
    never enough cooks during the day so your oftentimes doing two jobs at once.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism and stay consistent. Don't be overbearing to workers and stop sitting in the damn office all the time. Your turnover rate is bad because of things that could be easily fixed but are ignored.

    Pros

    I like my employees.

    The management are alright people, I guess, but they still work you to the bone.

    Pay your employees higher wages. They're killing themselves working on the line for you.
