Shift leader responsibilities (Former Employee), Dothan, AL – July 18, 2014
Pros: being a bartender...everyday was a learning experience
I was a bartender there and actually opened that one there in Dothan AL. I like the everyday interaction, the fun times and all my great guests, one the hardest things I had to do was leave, but it was fun while I was there.
Wait Staff and Bartender (Current Employee), Wilmington, DE – March 28, 2014
Pros: the people!!
Cons: no breaks, no shift meals
The best part about working at T.G.I. Fridays are the people you work with. All are honest, fun and bring tons of personality to the work environment. While guests can be a pain at times, the people you work with always seem to de-stress the situation.
Bar Tender (Current Employee), Cedar Hill, TX – January 7, 2014
Pros: meeting new people and discounted food are a plus!
Cons: sometimes you work long shifts with no breaks.
Working at Friday's gives you the opportunity to meet a lot of different people. A typical work day includes setting up and or taking down the bar, preparing drinks for guest and maintaining a clean safe work environment. At Friday's you must be TABC certified, and you must be willing to tell people when they have consumed enough alcohol. Generally – more... speaking myself and co-workers work well together and I would consider them my second family. – less
Expediter; Cook (Current Employee), Port Saint Lucie, FL – January 23, 2013
TGIFriday's overall is a nice company to work for. While the store I'm currently in has some issues, it is mostly due to it being a small store and therefore not having a high volume of guests coming through it.

Pros: great friendships and always moving
Cons: rude costumers
Typical day include making your guests feel welcome take down their orders and answering any questions they might have, also maintaining an assigned section clean and stocked I learned excellent costumer service skills and always keep positive even with difficult costumers. All management was really great people to work for they became mentors and great – more... friends, same goes for the co-workers we all helped and looked out for one another. The hardest part was being on your feet for along period of time. The most enjoyable part was never being bored there was always something that need to be done. – less

Pros: discount food.
Cons: short hours
Typical day I would come in do my job, meet new people, have interesting converstaions. Overall I had a great day at my job.

This role was my first in Austria. It presented the opportunity of learning the austrian office politics and expectations. I assisted in the production of marketing plans, cooperation development, enhanced the online portals and also assisted the GM. I discovered many of my strengths and weaknesses in this position as the team was alot smaller as I – more... had been exposed.
I enjoyed the freedom of the position and the possibility of constant creative input. I also discovered the importance of administration and the necessity to develop this as a strength. – less
