Bartender (Former Employee), Seattle, WAJune 24, 2014
Pros: letting me have the days off i wanted
Cons: no breaks, careless management
My life at Pf Changs was stressful, although they were great with my schedule, I would work 8-12 hour shifts without a break, we were not allowed to eat on shift either. I enjoyed my co workers very much! I loved being around people and making there bad days better.

Simple restaurant environment
Host (Current Employee), Hillsboro, ORJune 12, 2014
Pros: fantastic co-workers
Cons: not challenging, lazy management
The job is simple and brainless - seating customers (the same as any hosting position). I did learn how to use an updated computer system in order to seat, but I feel that seating without it is still simpler and requires more thought. Management is easily overwhelmed and focuses too much on personal relationships instead of providing a professional – more... environment. They also let favoritism motivate their decisions, and many of them don't help manage problem situations in the restaurant. The hardest part of the job is probably dealing with large pushes of customers coming in all at once. The most enjoyable part is the environment, though. The other employees are great people and it makes the job bearable. – less

Awesome, friendly-staffed restaurant
To-go Server (Former Employee), Huntsville, TXJune 9, 2014
Pros: very busy, great pay, great co-workers and management
Cons: had to leave for college
All of the staff and management were friends. We all got along great and worked well together and the General Manager really cared about his customers, his business, and his employees. A typical shift was everyone pulling together to accomplish one goal: satisfy the guest coming through the door. This restaurant did very well. It was always busy. Which – more... meant I was always busy. This was one job I did not want to leave but I had to for college. – less

Server (Former Employee), San Jose, CAMay 20, 2014
Pros: learn to work in a fast enviornment
Cons: employees
As a server at P.F Chang's, customer service was the number one priority for success. Being a waiter taught me many life skills ranging from how to properly communicate with unsatisfied customers, how to work in a fast paced environment, and how to work as a team so that the entire workforce can prosper.

Good chinese food
Server/Line Cook (Former Employee), Naples, FLMay 6, 2014
Pros: free employee family style lunch if you worked a double
Cons: too many to list
Horribly managed, Managers expected you to be at the table way too often, to the point guests would ask you to leave them alone. Bad tips. Management played favoritism.

Server/ bartender (Former Employee), Torrance californiaMay 5, 2014
Pros: environment, people, flexable schedule.
Cons: rude people.
I learned excellent customer service, patience, consolidation, and the ability to multitask. Management was strict but helpful in all aspects from the kitchen to the host stand. Very encouraging and motivated, made the work fun. Hardest part of the job for myself was sometimes having to deal with ungrateful guest, but the majority of guest make up for – more... that 5 percent. Most enjoyable part of the job for me is getting to interact with people on a daily basis, guest and coworkers.Also i never go hungry or thirsty, thats a plus. – less

Sous Chef (Former Employee), Houston, TexasApril 16, 2014
Pros: great food
Cons: no benefits
As a Sous Chef, I made a lot of delicious food and on the spot management decisions based on what each scenario in the kitchen called for.
I learned to cultivate my culinary skill set.
Management was ever expanding because at the time the company was expanding rapidly.
My coworkers were fun and easy to work with.
The physical aspect of cooking for lengthy – more... periods of time in a hot environment with little to no breaks was the hardest part of this job.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the freedom to display individual culinary creativity and skill sets within the parameters of exhibition style wok cooking. – less
