Closing Server/Host (Former Employee), Memphis, TNSeptember 2, 2014
Pros: i love cool unique buttons and flare was encouraged, the floor managers
Cons: healthcare, corporatism
Constant side work and generally rough tips was a typical day. I enjoyed hosting more at Friday's because I was getting compensated for my work appropriately. I loved the challenge of the job and I really did learn to serve there. We had impressive volume at times and it really got me used to the environment. I had previous experience at Blue Plate – more... and Bogies but, this was real serving, with ABC cards and computers. Management on the floor was awesome. I got great feedback, they worked really hard, tried to encourage growth with sales contests, etc. Management higher up was just plain awful. We had corporate management from TGI Friday's and Double Tree Hotels, which often conflicted and didn't make sense. It took months to get any kind of answer from human resources and they were never in the office. I know it wasn't always the individual employees fault but there was so much red tape with our companies policies, it was like talking to a wall. The hardest part was working so hard and walking away with minimum wage most of the time. The most enjoyable part was the challenge of the job itself. – less

Fun & fast paced working environment
Server (Current Employee), Concord, NCAugust 28, 2014
Pros: pros would be 50% off food, free if your training, benefits after a year
Cons: cons: it's a restaurant business, breaks are scarce, if possible at all on our busiest days
A typical day would be your general serving of customers, & upselling.
I've learned more about computer systems & to work at a faster pace in the restaurant business as well as more of alcoholic drinks & what goes in them. Manager is kept to a minimum, which is a good thing, because you don't want too many people telling you different things. The hardest – more... part would probably be accepting the fact that some people don't realize you only make $2.13 an hour & make your living off of tips. Complements are nice, but they don't pay the bills. The most enjoyable part is the food, the music, & the upbeat yet relaxed atmosphere. – less

Scheduling is flexible
Host (Former Employee), Long Beach, CAAugust 28, 2014
Management was fairly good. Atmosphere was not the best. A mix of co-workers, some were very rude some were very friendly. The hardest part of the job was dealing with vebrally abusive customers. The most enjoyable part of the job was that it was a laid back place.

Mixture of lazy and hardworking people, but they become your family.
Hostess (Current Employee), East Windsor, NJAugust 24, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule, employee discount
Cons: low pay, hard to find shift cover, a lot of side work
The pay sucks majorly. but you get tips. Hosts get 6.00/hour plus 2% tip out. Sometimes, i only get 3 bucks tip out -_-. Definitely not worth money for the effort you exert.The workplace is fun and laid back and I like that a lot, they kind of become your family.

Working for a large franchise
Bartender, Server (Former Employee), Mechanicsburg, PAAugust 20, 2014
Pros: always knew what was expected, comfortable
Cons: monotonous atmosphere, dealing with a more difficult clientele
Working for a large franchise in the food industry is fairly straight forward. There are benefits to the expectations and requirements that go along with a franchise. Always the same expectation. The hardest part of the job was how monotonous the work could be and how demanding the clientele could be. However, knowing the expectations and the same product – more... lent itself to contentment for some. – less
