Kitchen Staff- I (Current Employee) – Westport, MO – July 29, 2016
everyday goes by very fast probably because they only schedule me 4 hour shifts even though I got hired for full time but thats not the point Freebirds has a fun safe environment which I feel is very important in a job.
FOH/BOH (Current Employee) – California – August 20, 2016
Management is a nightmare which is unfortunate because the customers and coworkers are so cool. They make you work outside of your set hours and you have to beg for breaks even after 5+ hours. Unprofessional and cruel.
Great place to work, great management, helpful staff
Front of House Staff (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – August 4, 2016
Two shifts to choose from in the morning and afternoon, very flexible with hours, pay was adequate. Management was exceptional. They made you feel welcome from day one. Staff would bond with each other. Also, bonding with kids and allowing for parents to feel comfortable bringing them in for care during their workout
I worked at this company for 3 years and always enjoyed working in the care free environment. Managers were the same age as me and able to run the store. Most of the managers work with you and your lifestyle. Having the full weekend off can be hard unless they have a full staff. You will not be guaranteed 40 hours a week and 8 hour shifts, it's best to be in school or use as a part time job. Their making a lot of changes to be more appealing to conservative people. The food is good but becoming more expensive so customers continually yell at you about how things use to be. The hourly pay depends on the location, if they favor you, and experience. It's easy to move up especially if your available for all shifts.
Fun environment, young and older people, good locations
MANAGER IN TRAINING (Former Employee) – Semla, TX – April 16, 2016
This is an excellent job. I loved working here. Its a great atmosphere and I recommend to anyone that wants to apply. The food is cooked fresh daily, the music is relaxing and you get to be you while making other people happy.
Team Lead/Trainer (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – November 30, 2015
Freebirds was an absolute enjoyable place to work. Always meeting new people and hearing customers stories while preparing their food. The restaurant allowed you the freedom to express who you really are.
Fun work environment, although not the greatest place for growth.
Team Member (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – November 4, 2015
A typical day (When you were lucky enough to get hours), consisted of a fun work environment, awesome coworkers, cool music, and a casual dress code. Cleaning was always a big priority so much time was spent just touching up clean jobs, and prepping food in between customers. Management was fair, but a little tightly wound, but would always try to help us when they could. Due to the less than heavy traffic hours were scarce unless you were a supervisor or manager, but we got by. All in all id love to work for a busier location. 3.5/5
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 27, 2015
It was a fun work environment with good people. There always was a rush at lunch and dinner, bringing in plenty of customers. The management put me in charge of the cash register and the system wasn't too confusing or hard to handle. Everything ran smoothly and the cookies/brownies were excellent.
Tribe Member and Runner (Former Employee) – Hurst, TX – September 19, 2015
Good place for a first job. Low pay but everyone is really chill and fun to work with. They allow for a flexible schedule. The atmosphere has been changed somewhat with a change in corporate management and have become more like Chipotle in some ways. Food pricesare discounted for employees but are not free
cashier (Former Employee) – san jose ca – August 11, 2015
Working with different types of people was fun we got to dress in your own clothes wasn't judge about our tattoos or the color of our hair. we worked hard as a team some of us became close. the manager was young and rude just power hungry no one liked working with her. Some of the customers loved the vibe it wasn't for all the elder coward had a problem with the music to loud. it was one of the funniest job I enjoyed working at.
Catering Sales/Area Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – May 6, 2015
I spent my mornings working with current and new clients and communicated current information to 8 restaurant GM's & AGM's and spent the afternoon hours marketing. Cold Calling was a challenge, but setting up appointments for Sample Presentations was the key to my success and put me in contact with the decision makers. Operating remotely and independently allowed me the time to complete daily tasks and to build client relationships and exceed their needs.
