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

    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

    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. Kitchen staff should be better trained

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

    Pros

    Worked with your schedule thats about it

    Cons

    Management made promises that they didn't keep, would promote people then push them back into their original position without reason, they would favor certain employees over others, some managers had unprofessional relationships with employees that affected their working relationship

    Advice to Management

    Retrain all managers, treat employees better, dont make promises you can't keep, don't promote unless you are going to keep them in the new position

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

    Pros

    You never know how the day is going to go. The unexpected keeps you on your toes and there's room to move around in the company. It's somewhere I would go back to.

    Cons

    Sometimes the management team isn't as together as they would like to be. This makes being a good employee hard because depending on the manager, your day can be different, in a bad way, than the day before.

    Advice to Management

    Actually talk to the employees in each store to get a feel of what the management is really doing there. Numbers can't tell you how personable an individual is.

    Pros

    It has a fun environment and relaxed feel. Not up-tight at all and very friendly co-workers. The pay is great for the work.

    Cons

    Not always staffed appropriately since its a slower store. Relaxed environment tends to bring out the lazy in people. Not much room to grow in career.

    Advice to Management

    Help create more opportunities for employees to move up in. Create more growth potential for employees.

    Pros

    Relationships you build are worth it, hard work pays off. Plenty of room for advancement. Fun, fast paced. Money is good.

    Cons

    Long hours, tough customers. Scheduling isn't always fair- the longer tenured employees definitely receive a little bit of better shifts.
