    I worked at Red Robin part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Most co-workers are friendly - The Manager is nice and understanding. She will ask for your schedule availability and will do her best to accommodate you.

    Cons

    - Chaotic environment most especially when busy. - Management is not strict about cleanliness. Servers and hosts just leave trash on the floor when wiping tables because they know someone will clean it when the restaurant closes down. - Shift Leaders are not well trained. The Manager will tell the team to do something but the shift leaders will tell otherwise. The team in general doesn't follow one direction - You...

    Pros

    Amazing people Can cover shifts easily Fun atmosphere

    Head office is based in the US so change on the Canadian side is slow Chaotic High turnover

    Support your upper management more so in turn the restaurant can run smoother and your staff can be happy.

    Pros

    50% off food, wonderful co-workers, decent hours

    Cons

    Management that doesn't seem to know what they're doing - frequently felt let down by them. The managers at my location, who I believe have good intentions, were absolutely clueless on how to run a restaurant. Busy nights were always a gong show, which is unfortunate that it outweighed the good
