Server (Current Employee), Picayune, MSMarch 24, 2014
Pros: great management
Cons: healthcare
A typical day at work is walking in the door, clocking in, doing a ten point station check to make sure your section is ready for guest. When the clock strikes 11 o clock, guest began to enter and that's how your day starts. You learn how to grow patient with guest and other people. You also learn your guest. The management is great, and co-workers – more... are always friendly. the most enjoyable part I love about the job is I always smile whether I'm having a bad day or not because someone there is always going to make you smile. – less

Fun fast pace environment to work
Server Assistant (Former Employee), Flint, MIMarch 24, 2014
A great fast pace environment to be in. I enjoyed interacting with our customers and helping our servers. The staff was wonderful and very excited to be there. I learned how to host as well as take small to go orders, and run the dish tank. The best part of being there is that there is never a slow time and you are always doing something and staying – more... busy. – less

LOVE the workers, hate the system
Hostess/Waitress (Current Employee), McAllen, TXMarch 22, 2014
Pros: yummy food, fun to hang with co workers, energetic atmosphere
Cons: no breaks in our shifts, keeping your patience with unruly guests and ridiculous schedule
I love the people I work with at the Bee. Working there has really brought me out of my shell and helped me to be more social. Everyone is very helpful and we work together to help things run smoothly as possible. Management leaves something to be desired at times. The kitchen can be messy and disorganized. Hardest part of the job is the feeling that – more... you put so much effort into pleasing your guests and catering to their needs to be left with a tip of $3 but such is the way of the restaurant business. Best part of the job is working with your friends and getting a good payback when you work hard serving your guests. – less

Busser (Former Employee), Tinton Falls, NJMarch 21, 2014
Being the only busboy, I didn't get all the credit and appreciation that I should have from management. My co-workers were the only reason I liked working there because I gained a lot of friends in the process.

Great place to work and make friends
Server (Current Employee), PennsylvaniaMarch 19, 2014
Enhances personal and customer service skills in the restaurant industry. Teaches how to multitask, work well in a team setting, follow specific instructions, and the "customer is always right" mentality. It is difficult sometimes to deal with pesky or irritable guests, but the rewards of the job overpower the difficulties.

Bartender, Server (Current Employee), Baldwin, NYMarch 19, 2014
Pros: working with great people
Cons: short or no breaks
I've learned how to cope in different situations, and improved on my people skills. My co-workers are great. We all get along and work together to make the restaurant run smoothly. The hardest part is not being able to have a set break, especially if its busy. The most enjoyable part of my job is having a table leave satisfied.

Restaurant Manager (Current Employee), Virginia Beach, VAMarch 18, 2014
Pros: good salary, good opportunity to succeed
Cons: long, long hours.
Good company to work for, but management shifts are long and unevenly delegated amongst the management team. Typical casual dining environment. This company also understands the impact that thorough marketing implementations have upon sales, and strives to innovate new ideas into the business model.

Hostess, To-Go, Expo, Server (Former Employee), North Conway, NHMarch 18, 2014
Having a job at Applebee's is like adopting a huge family, everyone who works with you is willing to help you out, and you're always willing to return the favor when the time is appropriate. The few jobs I've had while working here have helped me learn to multitask in different ways.
Management has always been there to help out. They felt like just – more... as much of family members as anyone else you worked with, they were helpful and kind, they did what they could to help you out. – less
