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

    Pros

    always hours to be given

    Cons

    you work in a position that you will hopefully be promoted from. the promotion never happens. you sit in managers and find out everyone bonused except you because you're still hourly even though there's no difference in job description just a different title

    Advice to Management

    find some way to compensate the manager that does the body of the work to bonus just like the salaried manager.

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

    Pros

    They can work around your schedule and you can also request days off in advance. Most employees help you out on your first days instead of judging you. You are going to obviously face different types of personalities as a host so you must have thick skin.

    Cons

    Hostess don't last so you may be added to empty shifts. No bussers on morning shift so you may need to clean tables up (with no tip).

    Advice to Management

    Do something to motivate new hostess to stay. (Increase Salary)

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

    Pros

    The managers are great and so are the rest of the staff, everyone is very friendly. The work is fairly easy. And Christmas is always a day off.

    Cons

    Occasional low hours, it can get very busy on Saturday and Sunday. And the very beginning of the week especially Tuesday is very slow

    Advice to Management

    The schedule could be done a little bit better but all in all you guys are doing a great job

    Pros

    Loved the management, always felt like they tried very hard to accommodate my scheduling needs.

    Cons

    Very corporate, which means they want a LOT of productivity in very little time (often unrealistic, as is the case with most corporate jobs)

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Pay and benefits. Innovative company that is not afraid to evolve but keeps its core in place.

    Cons

    Long hours and weekends. A lacking management development structure. Any projects that are to be completed are done on your own time. Admin time is for the GM only. GM is key to having an enjoyable work experiance and work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management is knowledgeable and suppprtive.

    I worked at Red Robin part-time

    Pros

    This is a lively and young staff, and for the most part, get along well. I have worked at 3 different locations around the country, so it is possible to transfer if you move. Employees get 50% off meals on days they work, and 25% off on days they just come in to eat. Management tries hard to work with your schedule.

    Cons

    It's a minimum wage plus tips position. Like all restaurants, your total income depends on your customers' generosity. The busiest stores in the company have mandatory 3-4 weekend shifts per week.
