Demand not congruent with salary

Did not promote, follow what was promised. Changed job duties without notice. Demand for this companies service has diminished drastically. It has not stayed competitive.

It's ok
Server/Waiter (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCJune 24, 2019
Only getting $2.13/hr is ridiculous. The place doesn't get much business sometimes so when you're there for hours not getting tipped good enough it sucks. Standing around for hours just to go home with about $20

Not a good place to work
Server (Current Employee) –  Niagara Falls, NYJune 23, 2019
This location has a horrible review. To many servers are on the floor which causes everyone to receive less money. The kitchen messes up a lot and the kitchen manager worries about unnecessary things rather than the food.

Declined rapidity after gold coast
General Manager (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYJune 21, 2019
Lack of direction of parent company, identity crisis. Upper mgmt (vp,do) extremely fragmented and political. Profit before people especially in boh personnel fueled perpetual staffing issues. Management personnel expected to work line and prep functions in order to achieve unreasonable budgets. Very poor bonus structure.

Bartender/Manager (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJune 21, 2019
I had bartender experience before working with TGIFridays but not a lot of experience in full service restaurants. I learned a lot in a short amount of time during the bar training and was extremely impressed with the bar etiquette and with the organized expectations. When I entered management training it was exciting and new, I again learned quickly in a short amount of time. After training was finished I had the confidence to manage and operate every shift effectively. The pride in working with the company grew tremendously through out my employment with this restaurant.
Pros
Free lunch for management 1/2 off for team members great benefits package

Not a very professional workplace like they made it seem.
Waitress (Former Employee) –  2502 east springs driveJune 18, 2019
I didn’t make a lot of money there like the rest of the employees. I wasn’t trained properly and the mistakes in the kitchen were affecting my income. Probably the worst work experience ever. Children were throwing food and water on each other in the back of the kitchen. It was just a mess. Short staffed people walking out
Pros
Good discounts.
Cons
Cross contamination, cooks didn’t use gloves, no rules I forced which lead to angry customers

If you aren't a college kid apply somewhere else.
Server (Former Employee) –  Auburn Hills, MIJune 17, 2019
Host and servers will skip you to make money. Very slow most of the time, akward sections, and the guests are not good tippers, or zero tip, every shift you work. You take a back seat to managers favorites. Cooks are mouthy and slow, not enough staff to run the place. Except the bar.
Pros
Half off food
Cons
Everything else
