This was the best company I ever worked for. They have the most amazing set of Core Values and hold you in such high regard. I felt so important and was always noticed for all my hard work. My GM has no problem coming out on the floor and helping bus tables, or whatever was needed.

It was an amazing restaurant to work at. I obtained regulars who came in weekly. Management worked with my schedule when needed special attention. And most importantly all of the employees became family.
Pros
Free fries
Cons
Worked 14 hour days, sometimes.

Managers play favorites, and will disrespect you. Have heard a manager being discriminatory towards Asians. Hostesses do not get tipped out here. Would NOT recommend.

Managers pick favorites and get rid of the good workers and guilt trip you if you have to call in sick. GM is all over the place and has no set plan, he just likes to yell at people
Pros
None

Great place to work. Positive environment. Great teamwork, Always something new to learn, and a very dynamic environment as well. They promote from within so plenty of room to grow.

Money is good and staff treat you like family but they get very full so be prepared to be running around and be on top of things.

working at Red Robin was good and I was able to move up from being a hostess to a server in a short amount of time. Everyone is friendly and the customers are nice

I worked for this group for about a year, and everything was fine until we got a new GM and they tried to make me work Sundays even though that was not part of my availability. I was then fired over this.
Pros
Easy work, decent money
Cons
Management has no clue what they are doing

Working at red robin was my first restaurant experience for i have only ever worked at bars and clubs but it has taught me so much and i enjoy working in restaurants and the hours are more beneficial for me and my children. Although being behind the bar making drinks is my passion serving is also fun
Pros

The people at the restaurant made the job worth going into. Everyone was friendly and social which helped me get into the groove of things. The only thing that was difficult was being able to gain hours. They wouldn't schedule me enough to be able to pay off the bills that I had. I also did not receive the proper training which made it hard to do certain tasks.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
Scheduling

No direction or plan for the future development of anyone , the company bases all of its decisions on non development tactics, award winning or friends of others that can advance you . Witnessed it for several years
Pros
GM trip, once a year, most likely gone as well
Cons
Make you believe you’ll get promoted by developing, but it will not occur

They introduced service parter. Servive parter is an unpaid position who's pockets are filled with servers tip money. They don't pay them, servers do.
Pros
A lot of hours, because so many people quit so often!
Cons
Lack of pay, Servers make $2.13 hourly (as do server assistants), They expect servers to split the money that THE GUESTS gave them to pay a position that they won't, All of the side work goes to the positions that are not being paid hourly, You sit there nearly an hour after close doing free labor every single night, The tips are not enough because you have to tip out so much

Management needed more work . Compensation not enough for the work you put in. No work life balance they want people to work and no breaks sometimes depending on the flow of the day. Not fair work environment

Pros
Flexible schedule, great co workers
Cons
The GM was horrible at my location

Taking care of guests and spending time with coworkers is highly enjoyable. I enjoy helping people as well as taking Cate of them. Ensuring that they haven’t good experience is my number one priority. Teamwork is important as well.
Pros
Engaging with guests
Cons
Rude guests

Company is going downhill and screwing everyone over it. Used to love the job until we reopened for dine-in after COVID-19, now it isn't nearly enough pay and even managers are getting pay cuts. Also, no stance on current civil rights issues outside of hollow words. Love my coworkers, don't love the company.
Pros
Great coworkers and managers
Cons
Low pay, either too much or too little hours
