Server/Waiter (Former Employee) –  Wappingers Falls, NYFebruary 14, 2019
Management when first started was excellent, when proprietor left, replacement was not up to par and standards suffered. Morale was not good. Good news is proprietor was fired and former coworkers state things have improved

Host/Busser (Current Employee) –  Bensalem, PAFebruary 14, 2019
Jobs that are easy to learn and be proficient in; daily pay via tip share, decent pay. The management is split up among different people in different parts of the house, so it creates a dynamic workplace experience.

Hostess (Former Employee) –  Herndon, VAFebruary 13, 2019
Outback Steakhouse in Herndon was a fun workplace, while also staying professional. Every employee is kind and easy to talk to with a problem at work. I sat tables and answered phone calls from customers daily. I learned hospitality and customer service skills, how to work in a fast-paced environment, and how to interact with patrons.
Pros
50% off discount

Curbside Takeaway Server/Hostess (Current Employee) –  Lowell, MAFebruary 9, 2019
Outback Steakhouse has taught me people skills, patience, resiliency, and improved multitasking. The hardest part of the job was satisfying a mad, hungry customer. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you see the customer leave happier than when they arrived
Pros
Discounted food
Cons
Short breaks

Server (Current Employee) –  Fort Collins, COFebruary 8, 2019
I've worked at this Outback location for a little over two years now. The management is great and works with everyones schedules nicely. They are also open to advancement if you approach them and show that you would like to move up or try something new. Very friendly and easy going atmosphere. Hard work a lot of nights, but a lot of team players and a collaborative vibe.
Pros
50% discount on food
Cons
sometimes no break, late hours some nights
