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

    Pros

    Greatest job I can say I have ever experienced. The work environment and co workers were all great and made me look forward to work every night. I am ready to make a restaurant if that's what it may be ,my home a long lasting experience.

    Cons

    I am and always will be a hard worker,an overachiever so the more hours I can get in ,double shifts I can pick up is what I want,and TGIFridays did not unfortunately have enough business for a single mother of two so i had to depart from there after almost 2 years

    Advice to Management

    You will see my potential, how passionate I am about my work and friendly employee I am to work with. Please take a chace with myself, on top of my great personality, I have years of experience.

    Pros

    I worked at 5 TGI Fridays in Michigan and one and the upper east side of Manhattan. I started as a server but was promoted to bartender fairly quickly. I worked with fridays for 10 years. It is a great job making awesome tips. They do offer medical benefits as well. I did not take any benefits.

    Cons

    Bartenders work late on second shift. I would get home at 4 am

    Pros

    Excellent management at the store I worked at, loved everyone I worked with.

    Cons

    The endless appetizer deal was awesome for customers but wasn't exactly great for servers. Everyone would get a water and the $10/$12 endless apps and only tip $1-$2 because their bill wasn't that high, meanwhile the servers run their butts off getting everything for them.

    Advice to Management

    absolutely nothing!
