Fun place to work with loyal guests.
Service Manager/Acting General Manager (Former Employee), Elk Grove, CaliforniaSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: free meals, great staff, great guests.
Cons: little to no breaks for managers, ten hour average work day, little support from upper management.
A typical day as a Manager at TGIF entailed anything and everything that was needed including customer service, guest relations, human resources, cooking, cleaning, assisting staff in all areas, ordering product, continually training staff, executing company standards and effectively increasing profitability through all of the above.

The most difficult – more... part of my job was the high turnover of managers. I was always training new managers at my level as well as my superiors.

The thing I loved the most was my loyal staff. As long as I was there to support them, they provided phenomenal customer service and teamwork. – less

Waitress/Front Of House (Former Employee), Nottingham, ENGSeptember 11, 2014
Great atmosphere to work in, although poor management and lack of training given. I would be pulled into doing other peoples jobs because of lazy workers and the management did not care.

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
