It was a very fun job with lots of fun nights that reached out to different social groups.
Hostess/Car-Side-To-Go (Former Employee), Chesapeake, VAAugust 14, 2014
Pros: discounted lunches
Cons: no breaks
My co-workers and management team made me feel like i was apart of a family. I learned a lot of things as far as volunteering and diversity. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the high volume of customers on weekends and on special event nights, the most enjoyable part of the job was working with everyone and seeing how much cutomers enjoyed – more... their meals and service. – less

Wait Staff (Current Employee), N Syracuse, NYAugust 13, 2014
A typical day at the restaurant includes, checking section of restaurant which I will be serving tables. Maintain customer service at the highest level. Managers are fun and easy to get along with. You tend to figure out who is willing to work with you, and who is willing to bring you down. The hardest part about working for the company, is working – more... with people who just don't care. They don't care about the customers, employees, or managers. They use teamwork to get the job done. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people, listening to the customers talk about their day or experiences. – less

Fast paced, fun environment to work in.
Server (Current Employee), Coldwater, MIAugust 12, 2014
Working in a faced pace environment. Greeting guest in a friendly way, taking care of all guest needs. Management was very helpful whenever needed. I learned to put everyone first to make sure their dining experience at Applebees met their requirements. Hardest part of my job was making sure everything was always correct when your not around to perform – more... the duties. Most enjoyable part of my job was getting to know everyone I worked with and making new friends. – less

Server (Former Employee), margate flAugust 12, 2014
Work here is hectic, a lot of people coming in and out moving quick and efficiently is the key. Co workers were great management was awesome. Hardest part of the job is carrying big heavy trays. Most enjoyable part is providing great costumer service and making the people have a great time.

Fry Cook (Former Employee), southgate, miAugust 10, 2014
Pros: learned alot from older people, free lunch, nice pay
Cons: most of the managers were lazy, treated us like robots instead of people
An average day at work would start off slow the job consisted of dropping frozen foods in the fryers, making deserts, and also preparing salads fresh. Hardest part of the job running the station smoothly for 2hours by yourself until your help came in because managers would rarely help. Co-workers were nice very fun filled work environment. The best – more... part of this job was interacting with older people and learning and taking in information from them as well. – less

Great environment perfect for it to be your first job
Carside Carryout Server (Current Employee), 1502 610 Palomar St, Chula Vista, CAAugust 9, 2014
Pros: flexibility
Cons: not many hours offered
This job is great if your a fresh out of high school taking in your first job. The managers are great, the flexibility is perfect for a student, but what may come as an issue is the hours. If you come here with the plan of working 40 hours a week, then you may be disappointed, the most you can get is less than 30 on a good season. Overall great staff, – more... hard work. – less

Server (Former Employee), Lake City, FLAugust 9, 2014
Manager's head is too big for his own good, and treats his employees like idiots. I worked there 9 years & had no problem with any GM except this one. He lost all his good employees because of his arrogance..

Every day was a mystery
Carside/ToGo Specialist/Server (Current Employee), Mesa, AZAugust 7, 2014
Pros: learned a lot about myself
Cons: pay, coworkers were lazy
I love my Apple-Family but the staff and managers could use some improvement. It's hard to go into work and be one of the few people to bust their butt day in and day out when hardly anyone else could care less. We are all there to make money but people are selfish, working in a restaurant is a team effort, most of the employees here don't get that. – more... The managers are all really cool but they are no very strict, they let things slide that should't and don't stick to their word. Overall working here has taught me that I work a lot harder than I thought. Worked my way up from hosting, to Carside togo to a server and still work harder than the people who have been there 5+ years. I care about my job even thought I know I won't be there as long as they will be/have been. – less

Very easy place to work fun, but wasnt making enough to get by.
Server (Former Employee), Saint Johns, MIAugust 7, 2014
Everyday was pretty much the same, check your section out clean it up, then you'd wait for a table to be sat, when a table was sat you would greet your table and take their drink order. give them a few minutes to decide come back, get their order. sometimes you would have grouchy people and sometimes you would have a fun table.

Applebees
GU (Former Employee), Dalton, GAAugust 5, 2014
Pros: discount on food if work double
Cons: chicken, salad, desserts, etc
Applebees that I worked at was not manged well. Nobody was serious, The back of the house was not on point with there duties. The hardest part was the rush. It was only one GU, dishwasher but got through it. The most enjoyable moment was hearing my manger say, "well done."
