    Pros

    They were understanding of my schedule, they were understanding of my health needs.

    Cons

    There were some unprofessional discrepancies between the kitchen staff and the managers.

    Advice to Management

    The managers could've improve communication with each other but, due to the constant changing of management, it was difficult to understand what was often expected of me.

    Pros

    Medium to higher end of the management pay scale once justified. Pleasant management training program, a lot of tasty knowledge drilled into your brain in a relatively short amount of time. Always refreshing to Test your Mind to keep the dimension away. You will quickly overcome your fear of public speaking if applicable.

    Cons

    No work/ family balance. Almost an instant deal breaker seeing how it is a family oriented restaurant and management team ect. (Not your family.) My particular store, the management team seemed so focused on numbers and bonuses that I felt as though they had lost the passion to entertain and serve their community. Which goes back to Work/Life balance, any form of matter repetitishly tossed to the grindstone without attention to detail will undoubtedly snap.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Great training program. I could go into cooking method modifications but as it exists the pot belly behemoth named Ryan's easily makes food cost without the necessity to heckle staff. The secret to success for many chain restaurant is their addition of their very own commissary. The luxury of consistent produce, proteins, and dry goods cuts down on employee errors wonderfully, reduces labor costs typically lost in the preparation and grants the ability to produce food that looks exactly the same on Monday as it does Friday night. Food and Beverage Cost CONTROL!

    Pros

    If you are outgoing and a people person, then tips will come easy for you. I enjoyed the people interaction with my customers the most!

    Cons

    You will not make as much in tips on slow days or nights. It gets really hard when others don't pull their weight so you have to work double to not get behind.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to have relationships with your workers!

    I worked at Ryan's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, most customers were friendly, meet new people and personalities, pay was good if you were good at what you were doing.

    Cons

    Stressful, management was high strung, high expectations for servers, weekends and holidays, hard to take time off, no PTO due to part time, constant bickering.

    Advice to Management

    Treat long-term, good employees better. Sick people should not have to work due to spreading of illness to staff and customers. Do not expect everyone to handle the load of 5 people.
