I worked at T.G.I. Friday's part-time (less than an year)Pros
Flexible hours with long/good length shifts, consistent schedule, good pay for starting job, detailed computer training so all employees learn the same thing, decent benefits, fun co-workers, very LGBT friendly, could usually get time off if requested in advance, fast-paced environment, will train you for bar tending and even becoming a manager if you are willing to stay there for long enough, corporate is very responsive and you are very likely to see the company owner visiting your restaurant to check in occasionally.Cons
Poor lower-level management- there was literally a manager who hated hosts simply because they were hosts, every manager expected something almost completely different of you so you had to change how you did your job for every shift, managers would give you a hard time and try to make you come in for calling off if you were sick. Food workers should not be allowed to ever come in to work if they are sick, we handle other people's food and this is very hazardous practice.
Had corporate-imposed rules that were not functional for real-life application and would instigate arguments with customers.
8 AM food test meetings.
Takes very long time to move up from hosting to serving.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Don't allow shift lead to go on break during rush on weekends if other servers aren't going to cover their section - this makes the hosts look stupid when there are open tables and a half hour wait; make sure all management is on the same page always; make it very clear that no employee who is sick, doctor's note or not, should be on a shift handling food.
No one wants to eat Fridays at 8 am - move the food testing to an evening hour.RecommendsNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
