    I worked at Applebee's part-time (more than an year)


    -Low tip out (compared to other large restaurants)
    -Plenty of opportunity for lots of shifts (if you'd like them)
    -Good team attitude
    -Respectful environment
    -Meal discounts
    -Everyone is treated equally, you move up with experience, not favoritism


    -Minimum wage of course, but you'll double that number with tips

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Continue to be friendly with the staff, work is so much more enjoyable when your manager shows respect and appreciation for what each person does for their role
    -Continue to have pre-shift huddles, it's good to get everyone together and on the same page
    -Continue to have taster nights with the staff, it is fun to get together and try new foods and drinks and learn about them. It is much easier to upsell something once you've experienced it and have a story to tell about it. It also creates bonding for the employees, happy employees create a happy atmosphere for the guests.
