    I worked at Texas Roadhouse part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    works with your availability. fun place to work. handles the busy times relatively well. great workflow system...very effecient as long as everyone pulls their weight.

    Cons

    dramatic co workers since its a good place for college kids to work. middle management needs improvement, they play favorites and dont communicate effectively. managing partner and kitchen managers are great to work with.

    was there a little under a year

    Advice to Management

    dont play favorites. if one person is going to get treated a certain way, treat everyone that way.

    Pros

    Because this is such a high volume restaurant the line is very fast paced and the prep continual. The way they have the shifts staggered it makes it so the line rarely needs things "on the fly".

    Cons

    Due to the amount of food that goes through this kitchen, if you are a prep cook here you will be doing the same thing in large batches every day. It can be a bit monotonous.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say you will. If the crew sees the management not following the rules they think the rules do not matter and feel that neither the job they do nor they themselves matter to to the company.

    I worked at Texas Roadhouse part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    These are typically pretty busy restaurants so servers/bartenders make good tips. The menu is also very simple and easy to learn.

    Cons

    Management changes a lot, and tend to focus on the wrong things. Also, at both locations I worked for the people they chose for promotions were a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting politics determine who you promote and who you give the good shifts to. Nobody appreciates it.
