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

    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.

    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.

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