I have been working at BJ's Restaurants

ProsBJ's has pretty good food and excellent beer. It is open late, and my location was always busy. This translates into lots of opportunities to make $$$.

ConsJob satisfaction is directly correlated with management. I worked with awesome managers and loved my job, and bad managers who made work hell. BJ's transfers managers all the time which makes employees have to adapt to new rules and preferences.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep managers in locations longer to build rapport with employees/guests.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
