Server (Former Employee), Huntsville, AL – December 27, 2012
Pros: good money and good people.
Cons: tipping out bussers, expos, and bar tenders.
This job has a great environment and mostly good people. The location I worked at was busy all year round at all times of the day. Working a double on the weekends would net you $160 easy. The tickets were high dollar and we were right beside a thriving movie theater so people were in and out in a hurry more often than not. If you can work at a fast – more... pace and keep orders straight then this is a great place to work. – less

Red Robin, is fast paced, quick to fix any problems in the restaurant. Really helpful and caring to people and employees. The hardest part of the job is making sure everyone is good and on top of everything.

Hostess (Former Employee), Sherman Oaks, CA – December 10, 2012
I enjoyed this job, very productive and fun but my personal issues with the environment affected my performance. Here you have to be kid friendly and I personally would rather be around more adults. Overall fun and exciting!
Only concerned with company numbers and sales, not employee well-being.
Server (Former Employee), Henrico, VA – December 10, 2012
On a typical day at Red Robin I would go in at 11 work for an hour and a half and they would phase me. They put way too many servers on the floor and no one could make any money. On any given day shift I would walk out with no more than $20 in my pocket. The management only cares about their labor hours and the sales numbers the servers do, but its – more... hard to do that when you only have 3 tables and then get phased. The most enjoyable part of my time at Red Robin was my awesome co workers who were all awesome to work with and form relationships with. The hardest part of the job was making money. – less
Strong core values and cornerstones, fun fast workplace.
Manager/Bartender/Server/CDT (Current Employee), Waldorf, MD – December 5, 2012
Pros: fast money, fun upbeat pace, half priced meals, casual uniform
Cons: not a career for me, inconsistent income
Red Robin is a desirable job for someone willing to fulfill a career in the restaurant business. Everyday, showing up 10-15 minutes early making sure there is enough time allocated for preparation in the bar, kitchen, and on the floor. Filling out a Ready-Set-Go making sure everyone, including me, is filled in on what the action plans are for the restaurant – more... and company. Taking care of every guest, and earning my money through my hard work. Training new team members when applicable. Handling cash and credit transactions, and completing paperwork at the end of each shift. Working with people has always been something that I enjoy- regardless of the cliental. The management in the Waldorf location are extremely personable and down to earth. They have the ability to work as a team and communicate effectively between each other and the team members. They know how to initiate the team in order to make sure they are still hitting bonus and are conscious of their p&l. They create more of a family type feeling throughout the restaurant, as well as with my co-workers regardless of their department. The hardest part of the job is the inconsistency of income and knowing that is never going to be my career. The most enjoyable part of the job is feeling like home whenever I am there, knowing I have full support of the entire staff. – less
Busboy/Host (Former Employee), Vancouver, Wa – December 4, 2012
Pros: great hours, good co-workers.
Cons: crazy busy all the time
Even though i left Red Rboin. A piece of me still remains at the restaurant. it was one of the few employers I've ever had where people genuinely made me feel welcome as a fellow employee. Management was fair with writing the schedules. What you put into your work would reflect your hours and chances of advancement. I'd recommend anyone who's thinking – more... about applying to go ahead and do so. – less
Server/Mixo/Expo/Host/Trainer (Current Employee), California – December 1, 2012
Pros: free lunch if you are a trainer otherwise %50 off.
Cons: no family discount unless you are sitting with them, then it is only or 3 people, trainers no longer get paid more, managers don't know what they are doing, have no people skills.
I've worked with Red Robin for 10+ years. Have seen many things and have many memories here. I've seen the ups and downs of every position. I wish the management was more on your side and not thinking the guest is always right and buying people food all the time for crazy reasons!! This makes for a terrible clientele. Hiring of people is so random. – more... We need floor managers not office managers. Co workers are awesome. Kitchen crew is awful as are the bussers. Food is good. Prices are reasonable. – less
