Bartender Trainer (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OKMay 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, NYMay 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 MarylandMay 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

Bartender (Current Employee), Vernon Hills, ILMay 19, 2014
Pros: 50% off food when working, flexible hours, opportunities for growth in the company
Cons: compensation for duties over a server. same pay but more responsibilities
A typical day consisted of opening and closing duties including setting the bar up for success as well as functionality, stocking and restocking of products, tending to the requests and needs of the guest and promoting a positive environment for them to enjoy. Standards were to be upheld at all times. Our management team was committed to the brand and – more... held it's employees accountable. My fellow co-workers conducted themselves to the best of their abilities but at times fell short. At these times, we would come together as a team and work through the complications as one. The hardest part on my job would be keeping up with costumer demands when short staffed. The most enjoyable part of the job would be taking care of the guest. As a bartender, it is my job to make sure the guest in comfortable, satisfied and content. – less

I was able to learn how to work in a corporate owned restaurant at a fast passed. Learned new ways of how to work in kitchen compared to a basic kitchen that I had been used to so it expanded my skills with the amount of equipment I've worked with.

A close and friendly enviroment
Line Operator (Former Employee), Sutton Coldfield, ENGMay 16, 2014
Pros: friendly people, 50% off tgis food
Cons: small working space in the kitchen, often became very warm on busy nights
On a typical day i would work on the line cooking the starters as well as keeping the station topped up and clean, i learned to deal with a wide range of people, and how to insure that the customer is always kept satisfied.
During my time at TGIS i got on well with the management and my co workers as i am a fun and sociable person that loves a bit of – more... banter to make the shift more enjoyable for everyone. That being said i know the fine line between work and fun and treat the workplace with respect ensuring that the job i am doing is done to the best of my ability.
The hardest part of my job at TGIS was dealing with the constant demand for food on a busy night such as a Saturday, where i could easily cook for 300+ people in the space of 4-5 hours. While these shifts were busy and you often didn't get much of a break i had to insure that all the food was cook perfectly and presented well to insure customer satisfaction.
The best thing about TGIS was the relationship everyone had that worked there. while we all were often stressed over the tasks we sometimes faced as a team we were all very close and helped each other when it was needed. – less
