    I worked at Red Robin part-time

    Pros

    Busy restaurant, plenty of tables and opportunity to earn tips

    Cons

    Management was elusive and unfriendly, I followed the same server around for all of training, long training time but no time to show what you've learned or take criticism and improve.

    Offer criticism early on in the training process so things can be worked on before certification

    I worked at Red Robin (More than a year)

    Pros

    Always got paid on time. Food comes out quickly. Generally easy to get a shift covered.

    Cons

    Management doesn't act unless you consistently pester them. It's near impossible to move up. I worked as a busser for a year and a half and never even got moved up to an expo position. Its very hard to get and keep a consistent schedule with a good amount of shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Advance support staff quicker.
