Bartender in Sterling, VA/ Dumfries, VA
on October 13, 2015
A Learning Experience
It is a great place to learn to bartend and get up on your feet to progress on to other places. The way my experience was with this place/company was that I could work here and learn my basics on what to do and what not to do as a server and Bartender. Overall the guest at my area where very nice and down to earth people. I hear this isn't the case in every other applebee's since there are many bad experiences but in my location they are good people. Co-workers are nice and cool, Management was terrible and still is. They don't know anything and are lost all the time. Servers end up teaching them and so on. But take away management and its not a bad place to start of with and learn your basics.

No room for advancement at all. Decent place to get started in your cooking career. Will get knowledge in proper storage for food. Hard to require certificate for food handler.

Nothing to say really. Typical serving job. It was fine. Management good. Coworkers good. Nice customers. Tips weren’t the best but not awful either.
