    I worked at Applebee's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The money was good, and the place was always busy. I was making $400 in tips Thursday through Sunday. Can't think of any other pros.

    Cons

    The training was insufficient. Not enough to train a server. The trainer had zero incentive for me to succeed, and it showed. Politics were nuts. I came off the street. Other folks, hosts for instance, had wanted to be servers for a while, so they didn't appreciate management selecting me over them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train better.

    I have been working at Applebee's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing people to work with, every one knows every one
    Cash in pocket is always nice
    Can be cross trained to earn more money.

    Cons

    Tips are way too unstable as a host you could make 30$ you could make 10$
    seems with people come a lot of Drama (Drama-bees)
    New managers every month it seems like

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Applebees is an amazing place to work, it was my first job but some advice try to keep managers for as long as possible and try to give the hosts a little more base pay.
