Kitchen Staff (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKOctober 15, 2018
The environment at Freebirds is like nothing I've experienced before, it is usually a fun and light-hearted environment where you work hard and get the job done right. A nice focus that Freebirds has is definitely on the guests which really does show how much they care about their communities!
Pros
Half off a meal for the day, free drinks

Worked at 3 locations, each time company went through changes
Team Member/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Richardson, TXOctober 12, 2018
This company has been around for a while. Upon my first time working for the company, the focus was about the image and ensuring guest happiness. Along the way, the shift went to more of a corporation driven structure; taking pictures of tasks and sending them in at certain times, becoming extremely particular about portions, changing recipes, and lowering wages to save the company money. I will say though, the teamwork at the last location I worked for was incredible, and Freebirds does not turn people away who need jobs regardless of their past as long as they seem like hard working people. The people I worked with at every location have been truly awesome!
Pros
50% food discount (sometimes free)
Cons
Short breaks, Low wages

This job can be amazing for the right person. You have to be willing to deal with lots of different situations and know how to perform under stress. This is a great first job for a teen.

Not Great. Pretty Stressful
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) –  Corpus Christi, TXOctober 2, 2018
The New GM is not up to par, nice and all, but doesn't get the workload and a little on the lazier side. The rest of the Shift Managers and the AGM are great people who do their job correctly and help the workers out as much as possible.
Pros
Discounted food, dyed hair and tattoos allowed
Cons
Lost hours during school, Gm sucks, Raises are hard to get even if you've been working there a long time.

Culinarian/ Team Leader, Culinarian (Former Employee) –  Tyler, TXOctober 1, 2018
The absolutely pathetic state of modern restaurants are more apparent here than anywhere. Look at the hot sauce bottles at the front of the house. never rotated out. The contents of the bottles stay there for anywhere from 2-4 months at a time. Disgusting. No discipline, no leadership.
Pros
N/a
Cons
all of it

Cool in the beginning...
Back of House Cook (Current Employee) –  Denton, TXSeptember 17, 2018
Definitely a fun work environment but as I worked there longer, I noticed how management didn't prioritize promotions, recruiting, training, etc. Favoritism was evident. Cooperation was non-existent.

Still, I enjoyed my time there. FOH was easy line work; clean and stock. BOH was a bit stressful, but it was more task oriented and educational about teamwork, communication, and cleanliness. Learning recipes was cool.
Pros
cool people and music and food
Cons
no meal discounts

Front of House Staff (Former Employee) –  New Braunfels, TXSeptember 11, 2018
Every day was very fast paced. Management was not as organized as I feel it should have been. Hours were somewhat inconsistent but not too bad. Other employees were fun to work with.

SHIFT LEADER (Current Employee) –  Roseville, CASeptember 11, 2018
A typical day at work consist of AM manager meeting with the PM manager to discuss how the day went and the goals they should accomplish for the night. I learned that communication is absolutely the key to success, forecasting is a huge part of everyday because you always want to be in control of what products you have and the amount you have to work with. The management team gathers together and pushes for bettering the company and acknowledging the employees, to grow as a team. The hardest part of the job would be making sure everyone is going to put their all into each and every day and if someone is not 100% there that day, that someone will step up and put 110% to make sure we meet our daily goals.
The most enjoyable part of the job is definitely being able to bond with your co-workers and watching each other grow as a whole.
Pros
Building bonds with co-workers
Cons
AC doesn't work when it's hot outside.

Great to learn
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 7, 2018
This is a great company to grow in if you don't have prior culinary or management experiences. There is a lot of opportunity, but you really have to commit to make it happen. It is a demanding job but fun most of the time. The biggest problems are the lack of clear direction, poor dissemination of information, inconsistency in training, and poor management structuring. It often felt chaotic and stressful. While there is opportunity for advancement, training is somewhat lacking. Great music and guests, and amazing food.
Pros
growth opportunity, fun, no dress code
Cons
breaks often missed, no clear direction

GM makes job stressful and show strong favoritism
Mentor (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 4, 2018
If you want poor hours, be stress out, poor pay, treated unfairly then this is the place for you. If you want to stay late nights doing extra scrubbing and cleaning for an inspection for the next day then the inspection doesn't happen.
Pros
50% off
Cons
Poor management, dirty work place, poor hours, get sent home early if slow, get ask to do stuff while clock out
