server (Former Employee) –  Warner Robins, GAFebruary 22, 2018
If your a southern girl and you enjoy kind hospitality and respectful people, cheddar's is where you would want to work. I felt like part of a family even when I got in trouble I took it as constructive criticism to do an even better job. Management is respectful but strict and keeps everything in great order.
Pros
discounts on food, family environment
Cons
none

Manager (Former Employee) –  FloridaFebruary 20, 2018
I worked as a manager at cheddars for 6 years. I worked in multiple locations and never walked into a restaurant where the staff wasn't happy or enjoying their job.
Overall if you're willing to work the long hours and spend time away from your family it is a great place to work.
Pros
Great salary
Cons
long hours

Corporate Trainer - Sauce/Prep Chef (Former Employee) –  Ontario, OHFebruary 16, 2018
Great place to work for line cooks & prep chefs. More casual atmosphere than most full service restaurants. I do not know about their benefits now, as it was over 20 years ago that I was employed there.
Pros
Good food!
Cons
Tipped employees should make more per hour

Server/Waiter (Current Employee) –  Lafayette, LAFebruary 8, 2018
Due to the low prices and lack of management that this cheddars location withholds, the restaurant attracts a lesser crowd and it reflects on the servers so while the restaurant is making money getting people drunk the servers are not making any tips.

ok work place
Server (Former Employee) –  Brandywine, MD 20613February 6, 2018
Cheddars is very loud and busy great servers some managers are on top of there game and others are not. But anyways I did learn how to greet ppl in a timely fashion manner. The culture of cheddars is very different in it's own way. The hardest part of the job is being under alot of pressure at one time. I did enjoying meeting new people and taking on new task
Pros
1/2 off on food
Cons
Poor Management

It was a job
Server/Waiter (Former Employee) –  London, KYFebruary 6, 2018
A typical day at work you get 1 table your whole shift and you may get 20 tables it just all depends. Most of the management was good to work for. The hardest part of the job was seeing that people broke rules and never having anything done to them about it.
Pros
had good people to work with
Cons
some of the upper management wouldnt lesten to what you had to say when there was a problem

Its Good but soul sucking
Waiter (Current Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMFebruary 5, 2018
Cheap demographic that comes through. Cheap food=cheap people. When it is busy, kitchen tends to shut down quick. Depending on staff, they can be very hard to work with, especially the kitchen if there is a lack of communication.
Pros
Insurance packages, 401k, and stock opportunities.
Cons
Drama all day, ignorant guests.

This is a great place to eat, yet a horrible place to work.
Server (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYFebruary 5, 2018
The food and atmosphere is great for customers, that's where the good stuff disappears. Management never listened to any employees concerns. Scheduling is automated and never right for the availability I listed. The management doesn't seem to care if you get hurt or need to go to the hospital. Health and cleanliness of the employees and store was abysmal.

Server/togo specialist (Former Employee) –  Waco, TXJanuary 30, 2018
it was a good place to work and make money. not much opportunity for advancement kind of a dead end job. money was great certain times of the year and horrible at others. kind of up and down and a bit unstable income because you never know how much you are really going to make.
Pros
free food or extremely discounted
Cons
short breaks if any

Waitress, hostess (Former Employee) –  West Monroe, LAJanuary 26, 2018
A lot of customers. Everyday busy days were on Thursday through Sunday. You had to stay on your feet, you had to make sure your tables are clean and everything on the table is re-stocked. And the chores they give you had to be kept up. You had to stay on your feet.
Pros
Discounts
Cons
Managers were awful
