Server/ Cocktail Waitress (Former Employee) – Whittier, CA – March 1, 2018
The culture at ORG was different than what I was used to which was more of a lack thereof. Management was helpful when they wanted to be and team work was scarce. I learned how to manage my time efficiently and multitask well due to the fact that there was little help to be offered. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting regulars who made the shift easier.
Server (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – March 5, 2018
This was one of the worst serving jobs I have ever had. It was stressful, depressing, terrible tips and large parties with separate tabs and a computer system that was ALWAYS going down or barely working. Management had their favorites. Was usually the girls who had similar interests to them or were their friends. Favoritism was a big part of this place. I was treated unfairly, cussed out and even threatened. I loved some of my co workers but some were very unstable.
Hostess/Cashier (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – January 5, 2018
Working here was a very negative experience. The worst part about working here was the management. The management was very disrespectful to their employees. There was always drama and it was due to the poor management. The other bad part about working here was the lack of hours. I started off working a decent amount of hours for a part time job but as time went on I was averaging about 3 hours a week and I got paid biweekly so I was making about $30 every two weeks. Another huge problem with working here was the favoritism. The management would make it obvious who they liked and disliked which made it very uncomfortable.
not enough hours, not enough pay and poor management

Bartender/Server (Current Employee) – Long Beach, CA – June 29, 2017
A typical day at work,my shift would begin at 4pm. Bar tending and serving ,having the restaurant to myself until servers begin arriving at 5pm. We get our dinner rush and servers are phased as business declines ,till its back down to just me .During this time is when I start to do my closing duties in between taking tables ,so that by closing time,its all clean,stocked and ready for the next bar tender. Its usually a steady from the beginning of the shift till the end. I walk an average of 16,000 to 18,000 steps in a 6 or 7 hour shift.Being with the company for years,I have learned a lot. I began serving,moved up to bar tending ,then eventually management. The management team is very supportive and cares about their employees.The workplace culture is Hand-cut steaks, Freshly made yeast rolls ,peanuts on the floor and line dancing. The hardest part of the job is when business is unpredictable and can get busy without enough help to ensure that every guest is completely satisfied and will return. The best part of my job is ,the relationships regular guests, co-workers and management. Teamwork, lots of laughs and a fun shift.

Hostess/Expo (Former Employee) – Salem, OR – December 23, 2016
Fun place to work! You make awesome tips in the evenings. Management for the most part is great however, the guys in the kitchen are extremely rude and get mad when asked questions and embarrass you in front of everyone. Kitchen staff needs to be trained on professionalism. Extremely uncomfortable to ask them for help or if something is missing on an order.
Server (Former Employee) – Gresham, OR – September 13, 2016
A typical day at Roadhouse Grill as a host or a server can be quite challenging but very rewarding. All my coworkers and managers were very fun and friendly to work with, which makes the day go by very fast. I could rely on my peers for anything if i needed too. I learned so much by working in a large restaurant. So much that i can take with me to the future. I have learned details about how to cook steaks, porkchops and chicken and how to properly explain different temperatures. Everyday for me was enjoyable because i make the best of everything!
Server/Hostess (Current Employee) – Springfield, OR – September 14, 2015
Original Roadhouse Grill is a place where we are a tight knit coworker family who helps each other out to make everyone's job easier. Not only do we provide great food but it"s served by greater people!
Server/Bartender (Former Employee) – Medford, OR – January 14, 2015
I love to work grand opening of restaurants. To come in fresh with everyone else for the first time, be trained specifically on the menu, and the bar, the excitement of something new. We did it all. I bartended, served, trained, sang...this place was home. I spent 7 years with this company and would jump at the chance to go back and work another 7 or so years, this restaurant had it all.
Hostess/Waitress (Former Employee) – Temecula, CA – June 8, 2014
The Original Roadhouse Grill allowed me to understand what it meant for a company to grow and develop. The management team was very positive, and ran their business very effectively. I was expected to communicate with other team members, as well as customers.
