chef, Cook (Former Employee), Kent, United Kingdom – January 19, 2013
i had a great time in TGI Friday's during my experiance. i had a great time with the management and also with my co workers. the hardest part of the job was working on weekends as i was working in a very busy business enviornment and especially on weekends. Though it was the hardest part, at the same time it was fun too when you are required to do the – more... job as fast as you can to fullfill the demands of customers waiting outside of the kitchen on more than 350 tables. – less
Manager (Current Employee), Effingham, IL – June 10, 2014
Pros: work environment
Cons: benefit package
I have currently worked for TGI Friday's for 7 years as a server and a manager. I have never had a horrible experience while working here. Most co-workers are as close to family as you can ask for. If I had only one complaint; its that the benefit package is very scarce.
Hostess (Former Employee), Lawrenceville, GA – June 8, 2014
Pros: menu deals & discounts, friendly customer service
Cons: no beepers for when restruant goes on a wait
A typical night at tgi Fridays is never calm especially on Fridays where it is the beginning of the weekend and couples, families or even parties are looking for a bite to eat.
Normally the weekend nights are quite busy and we do sometimes end up on a wait but as all co workers and mangers work together we don't stay on a wait for that long.
co workers – more... and managers at tgi Fridays are the best of the best they all treat everyone like family, and are never to far when anybody needs assisting with their duties
probably the hardest part of the job is the wait list sometimes we will have a full house and have so many guest waiting to be seated plus more guest would be arriving too but when we all work together this no longer seems like a hard task
I would say the most enjoyable part is being able to work with such a great group of co workers and managers. – less
Bartender Trainer (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OK – May 30, 2014
Pros: free shift meals for shift leading.
Cons: we had healthcare and vacations.
Work at fridays was always a good day. The job was not only an obligation but it was a god time. the job always got done but we could also enjoy it the rest of the time. I learned how to have a lot of patience with customers, I learned to teach and how to be a leader of a group environment. Overall it was a good job the hardest part was always learning – more... to be faster and working under pressure and multitasking. The enviremonet I worked in was the best part of the job. – less
Server (Former Employee), Westbury, NY – May 29, 2014
typical day at work i am on the go always going and never the one to complain but just do my job, i learned more about teamwork with my older co workers and how they operate. My co workers were always older most times so i get to use there back ground for minor things such as being a trainee, the hardest thing was learning everything in a short time – more... span but quick and efficiently, most enjoyable was after my training and my 2 weeks of getting to know the ropes i successfully became one of the best they've have seen. – less

Kitchen Manager (Current Employee), District Heights Maryland – May 21, 2014
Pros: having free health care.
If I am opening the restaurant I am responsible for setting the store up for success. The opening manager prepare prep sheets,does line checks, making any calls for repairs. I have learned how to interview for staffing,how to be a leader and role model.How important is to teach others how to grow in the company. The management is good and work as a – more... team.The hardest part of the job is not being staffed and not being able to meet the guest need. The thing I love most and enjoy about the job is seeing old and new guest come to place of business. Also meeting new people. – less

i learned alot here it increases your people skills and i learned that trial and error is not always the bebst concept.. the hardest part of the job is not making any mistakes and keeping rude customers happy.i love when customers are satisfied enough to come again or request me for there next visit ..it can be complicating at times but its rewarding.
