Not a terrible place to work but could be better. Management is not nearly strict enough. The hours can br rough sometimes as well. It has benefits though. You apply for stock.

I was treated like someone that they picked up off the street. Very poor management skills. I ended up with severe depression. I started working for Applebee’s and didn’t realize how bad I was treated

Love my team, fun environment, good people. They work with you in any situation. The pay is half of minimum wage but if your store has hood volume that doesn't matter.

Over all goodPlace to work especially if your young, it’s a good starting server job. Fun people to work with , management is pretty flexible and will work w u w personal issues. Now a lot of $$ if your a server or host though

If management didn’t play favoritism with their kids then it would be a awesome job but other then that it’s like a high school full of over grown adults that talk about each other like a dog the money was good but very un professional
