    I worked at T.G.I. Friday's part-time

    Pros

    Loved my co-workers and the spirit of being miserable together, but that was just it.

    Cons

    Management was never o the same page. Each manager would promise to promote you for over a year and a half none of them ever did. Managers were awful when it come to protecting their employees . the place was so run down. Some nights I was a hostest, a server, and a plumber.

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

    Pros

    Space to move up - I was able to quickly move up in the schedule and sections with hard work, and form there people are able to be promoted to cocktail, bar, management. Lots of long-term, committed employees at every Friday's.

    Solid benefits for full time or management, easy transfer, and decent discount on food

    Energetic staff and a of recently, a more modern dress code!

    Cons

    Dress code applied strictly to female employees based on their appearance. For instance, male co-workers were allowed to expose full-sleeve arm tattoos when a female employee with the same placement would have to wear a sleeve.

    The company wastes of lot of products everyday and have yet to make strides to address this economical and environmental issue.

    Advice to Management

    Consistently recognize your fellow employees of their hard work! Pins and prizes for sales contests were incredibly inconsistent, and while an old motivational tactic of theirs, it still motivates.

    Stop guilting your servers into cover tabs out of pocket for other people's mistakes! It's not only illegal, but it's also a lazy way to improve server awareness. Walk-outs happen!
