    Pros

    Amazing co-workers, management does their best to always give you the days you request off, discounted meal.

    Cons

    Working day shifts you are often set up for failure by short staffing and call offs, open until 2 am everyday including all holidays

    Advice to Management

    Better scheduling and adjusting in times would help emoloyees be able to keep customers happier cuz they wont be constantly doing the work of 3 people

    I worked at T.G.I. Friday's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The restaurant did not require experience with waiting tables and training went pretty well. You would shadow someone, and then they would shadow you.

    Cons

    I did not like that we were open until two every night. Also, I ended up working shift lead every night instead of rotating between servers. That meant even if I came in at 10 to open, I could be there until 2 the next morning.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build rapport with the servers.
