Pros

Tons of free food Opportunities to innovate in your role

Cons

No support from directors or upper management. Toxic level of expectations that comes out of upper managements desperation for results, always being reactive rather than proactive. Nearly no work life balance. Expect to be called during vacation to work. Culture of subliminal bullying for disagreeing with upper management. Lack of investment in materials to get the job done well. If you’re not part of the inner clique, you won’t last long and they’ll force you out.

Advice to Management

Give everyone an equal chance to have their voice heard. All the employees work really hard and start out with a love for the company and products, but the upper management’s tendency to form cliques and ostracize, ignore, and push aside those who are not their favorites is the reason why the brand doesn’t have a greater share of voice and you’re losing great talent.

Pros

I worked for Red Robin for about 2 years. The first week I got hired based off of my high experience, they definitely seated me as much as regular server but with a party section and triple sat me on MULTIPLE occasions. While the money was well worth it, the work... not so much. Because that day literally set the tone for the TWO years I worked there EVEN during a global pandemic. Management is VERY unprofessional, (inappropriate relations, overworked workers, favoritism & unfair treatment towards selective) not only did these locations have not have a diverse serving staff, multiple micro aggressions were used even by managers and seniority servers. Management and company did not take care of majority of their (COVID) staff as they “promised” too. Work for them at your risk, but this your HEADS UP!

Cons

Meet a FEW wonderful people

Pros

Getting to interact with people of different backgrounds Building relationships with enjoyable people. Has the potential to be a great employer again

Cons

Horrible work/life balance at the moment. Company is going through some changes, some for the worse. Managers are seen as place-holder cooks while staffing up, but still expected to manage competently. Borderline negligence in allowing restaurants to try to offer competitive pay rates to new hires. Jobs being threatened to maintain good Steritech scores, guest satisfaction scores.

Advice to Management

Review salaries with those employees who were affected by the position crunch. Some of the salaried managers who were bumped to AGM and given extra workload are doing the same job as some who are earning $20k more a year. Assess restaurants that are struggling to hire staff due to being near large hiring centers (e.g. Target, Walmart) that are offering $15/hr to start. You cannot compete for an 18-year-old with their benefits if you’re only offering $15/hr too. Look into what your RODs are telling their teams. It’s a massively toxic work atmosphere to continue seeing or hearing threatening messages from higher-ups when restaurants are struggling with staffing but are still trying to do their jobs.
