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

    Pros

    Building Social Skills
    Food discount was like 40% or something
    Had a very flexible work schedule, in terms of scheduling it ahead of time
    Good place to work if you're very positive

    Cons

    Management was horrible. Would see a new manager every three weeks.
    All of the other general cons that come with working in a restaurant, such as dealing with people gossiping because they have nothing better to do, blaming other people for their own mistakes, being pressed by coworkers during rush hours, and other potentially toxic aspects.

    Advice to Management

    This would probably be better heard for the higher-up guys, but stop trying to change policies every two weeks. As a worker it's obvious to see you guys trying desparately to change small things constantly. At least inform your workers why you do so.

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

    Pros

    Usually they only have a few servers on at a time, so when you get busy you can get quite a few tables and parties

    Cons

    Typically no busser, never a food runner, very unorganized shifts and undependable people

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

    Pros

    Starting entry level wage was high

    Cons

    Staff consistently fought
    No bussers, wait staff has to bus their own tables and they can't when it's too busy so there's no dishes for the kitchen staff.
    Management had the same people close then open the kitchen the next day
    Replaced kitchen manager with inexperienced manager
    Experienced staff was training entry level staff whom were all making more money than their trainers
    No AC or fans in the kitchen

    Pros

    Overall I️ have a positive outlook about where I️ work. The managers are great, the pay is decent, and I️ like my coworkers

    Cons

    There’s isn’t a free meal on shift and they rarely give breaks if at all. Busy restaurant means busy employees

    Advice to Management

    Happy team members work harder than angry ones
