Welcoming Workplace
All of the people I worked with were extremely supportive and helped me get acclimated to the work environment very quickly. The only issues you'll ever encounter are unpleasant customers but just get a manager and they are always there to support you.

Nice, But Overwhelming.
I enjoyed my work there due to my other associates, but I was typically stressed out due to the impatience of the enviroment. If you do not deal well with a fast paced and demanding job, I would not reccomend this for you.

People are rude
Seat customers at their table. Deal with server drama and nonsense. Answer calls and make call ahead seating. No reservations. Rude customers and horrible tips/pay.

Productive and Great Learning Environment
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

Easy going and enjoyable at the beginning, but progressively worse
When I first started working at Outback Steakhouse as a delivery driver, I was having the time of my life; I got to drive 20 minutes roundtrip and listen to music the whole time. I felt like I was being recognized for my work, and I even convinced management to change the delivery uniform to be more suitable for the weather. However, as time went on, the job became a slog. Management became progressively worse over time, and so did the overall work enjoyment and experience

If you want to grow in the restaurant business than work there.
Cool Place to work, but the travel to the restaurant is kind of far. Managers are over all great workers and responsible as a team.
All employees get 50 percent off of food which is awesome to use before or after your shift.
Pros
Growth
Cons
Distance

Great place to start work.
I found Outback being a great way to get my foot in the door of the working world. Starting out young and working there in my late teens' I was shown how to really work not only for myself but for others to keep the environment well for all. Working there taught me great team work and to manage my time better.
Pros
good work environment, great food.
Cons
Long hours, short breaks

Flexible workplace with cohesion among coworkers
Very flexible for your personal schedule, good for students and people with multiple jobs. Environment is no different from any restaurant employment. Management is a hit or miss. Hardest part of the job is doing multiple positions as a server, where other restaurants separately employ food runners, bussers, etc. Most enjoyable part of the job was the coworkers.

Small town restaurant
A chain restaurant in a small town is hard to work in. We don't operate like other stores in our chain/region. The hours are different, which effects how the workers are paid.

Fast Paced and a sense of belonging
I enjoy the people I work with and the fact that there's always something to do. However, with 3 kids the work hours aren't conducive to a family lifestyle.
