Hard to move up levels, as a kitchen manager the hours are long but the staff make it very rewarding. There is a lot of appreciation for the staff and they are celebrated for the work they do

Customers can be very uneducated about how to tip the servers. Lot of parties and that can be stressful. But if you know what you doing shouldn’t be a problem.
Pros
More you work, more you make. Employee benefits.
Cons
Stressful, rude customer

If you ever work there the chance of you returning for a meal is not going to happen. Too much trash walks into the restaurant and it’s not worth your time. Try something else.
Pros
There are none. Zip!
Cons

Cheesecake Factory Rocks. I worked at 2 locations and the people were all very friendly. The food was a little pricey so you could get really good tips. I had a regular who came in with his family and tipped $100 EVERY TIME. If there were two servers working the table - then he'd give $200! Though it was a once a month thing buy you can get some very big tippers here. If you get the job you'll like it.
Pros
Free bread & soup + so much food during training
Cons
singing happy birthday and the normal pains of being a waiter

Overall great restaurant. Management is a bit unorganized. Team members are awesome and helpful. They lack full training and expect things to be know right after a week of training.

The GM at Bethesda, Maryland was a misguided, indecisive, and poorly executed manager that didn't know how to lead by example. She made fake promises to many of her staff including myself and never follow through with any of the past commitments she made to people. I love my co works but the management was the very reason why I left the company sooner than expected.

It's a nice company to work for but it's too much chatter and personal business being spread(Gossip)! To be clear it is a restaurant and you'll gain friendship but i feel why mix the two.

The Cheesecake Factory is a great place to work as a main source of income or supplementary. They allow you to complete your job with a great support system.The workplace culture at this specific location is really harmonious where everyone is helpful and friendly. The most difficult aspect of the job is excellent customer service when the section you're assigned is demanding. Given the day, you may get 3 tables at once or have a needy table while your other tables are ready to pay. It's a good company to work for overall.

The Cheesecake Factory is perfect for young adults with goals outside the restaurant industry as well as for people who seek to further their career inside the restaurant industry. Management at my location became overwhelmed with the position and sometimes acted unfairly as a result.

They are an excellent stepping stone to your next phase in life. However, they use you to the fullest solely for their advantage with little to no return. They are terrible at developing their staff and management, you basically have to help yourself.

Guests may not notice, but The Cheesecake Factory is a sinking ship. You will be hard-pressed to find any long term employees that have not seen a drop in the quality of employee working for this company. You can make money if you know how to flip your tables, but they remember that you're replaceable.
Pros
Discounted meals

Almost perfect place to work. Staff was very approachable and friendly, managers knew what they were doing and knowledgeable enough. Kitchen staff was slightly unreliable, still good nonetheless.

High volume
