    They have too many severs on slow days.

    I have been working at Ted's Montana Grill part-time

    Pros

    Nice atmosphere, great food, discounts on employee meal, decent money

    Cons

    Kitchen employees could be extremely disrespectful and management wouldn't do anything about it. Management staff could be unprofessional, instead of telling an employee what they can do to better themselves they would instead gossip about it. Large turnover rate.

    Every store location is different

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the little guy, don't get so lost in sales and the corporate agenda. Remember to take care of the people that keep the company running on weekends and holidays.

    I worked at Ted's Montana Grill full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free meal, plenty of hours (depending on your manager and if they like you)

    Cons

    Hostile work environment, discrimination(a pregnant employee was yelled at for taking a minute to eat a snack off-line during a dead period and for using the restroom), unprofessional managers who hold things personally such as putting in your two weeks, little to no pay raises despite meeting raise requirements, little to no opportunity for growth, breaks are not a guarantee, hours can be given based on favoritism depending on if you are FOH or BOH, certain managers take out their anger and frustration on employees(usually on female employees), no corporate or certified trainers(employees who have been there longer than the newcomer will train people on their station), managers expect you to bend backwards for them without offering the same in return, high turn over rate, poor safety measures in place ( someone received a 3rd degree burn because the manager would not replace the oven mitts that had been worn through with holes, and when confronted stated that it was his last day as manager and to tell someone else)

    Advice to Management

    Replace your managers with people who can keep a professional attitude and respect towards employees, offer breaks, bring in certified trainers, provide better safety measures for less accidents to occur, hire enough people to keep the kitchen staffed so people can have days off in a week and the kitchen crew doesn't suffer during busy days
