"I’ve worked with Outback Steakhouse for about a year now. I have quickly grown in the company, challenging myself to elevate in position every few months. Being only my second job I don’t have much to compare it too, but I would say it’s an average company and a good place to start, as they’re pay is not bad for the type of work, and their it a lot of opportunity for advancement."

"Overall, the job was not a bad one. The problem is that my coworkers lacked motivation and were lazy at times. Also, managers were not clear at times when trying to give instruction, making the workplace dysfunctional."

"The good: I like my coworkers, a lot, whether they're servers, working in the kitchen or even other hosts. They're all super friendly and you will get along with pretty much everyone (if you have a positive attitude). I get along with my supervisors/managers really well, one I feel really comfortable with and he often times gives me tips on how I can improve my work and become a better host. The bad: You get tip share, meaning you get a portion of the tips that servers make. This can work in your favor some nights and be the worst thing ever on other nights. You never know when it's going to be crazy and busy or if it's going to be super dead and you get excited if a single customer comes in, these are the worst because you get paid based off of the tip made that day and if not many come in, you won't be making much that day either. The ugly: You never REALLY know when you're going to go home. You can be an opener and expect to stay for a 7 hour shift, however, that doesn't always play out. Your manager may tell you a time that you can expect to leave, but again, that doesn't always work out as you plan because you never know when people are going to come in. Some days it just may get really packed and crowded that they need as many hands on deck as they can get so you just may have to stay the entire time. I hope this review has helped you because I would have loved to read a review like this before becoming employed at Outback. The good may or may not out weigh the bad for some, however, the bad may just overpower the good. Who knows but just keep in mind, your hourly pay is a lot lower than minimum wage just because you are receiving "tips" and I mean A LOT lower."

"I have worked for Outback for many years and it first started off great. It was a really fun company to work for, made a lot of friends, and you could tell this company cared about the employees and the business itself. Over the years the company started putting multiple jobs on to one person. Example: one person makes salad, desserts, and all appetizers. On top of that they have to prep all there items which takes a few hours and they have to make sure everything is food safe. Honestly the food takes a lot longer because they have so many responsibilities, so this upsets the guests because they are waiting over 10 minutes on a salad. Outback has become money hungry so they cut corners to make their wallets bigger for the short term but in long term they are driving the business into the ground. Also we used to make our own food and that part is set but now everything comes in bags. Outback used to be looked at as a higher based restaurant, but at the rate it's going they will be more comparable to Coney Island. The employees used to be more loyal and over the past few years the turnover rate has gone through the roof. We don't feel appreciated and we feel over worked!"

What do you like about working at Outback Steakhouse?

"I like interacting with people, making people smile, and having some control over how much I make."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"It really depends on the restaurant... they all have different personalities."

What don't you like about working at Outback Steakhouse?

"I don't like weird social hierarchies and relationships among coworkers, unhelpful and unthoughtful coworkers, and rude customers. There was not much of a chance to move up in the hierarchy unless I was a 'lifetime' server."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Some people are NOT meant to solve problems and do not have the patience to help others, so 'keys' should go through a better selection process. If someone's job is to smooth relations and fix problems, make sure they don't melt down and get furious when they have to do their job."

What do you like about working at Outback Steakhouse?

"The fast pace made the days seem to go by fast. I liked the interacting with customers and employees at Outback."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Show personality and dress nice. So many applicants come in looking like scrubs, and I never called them back just based on how they presented themselves."

What don't you like about working at Outback Steakhouse?

"I didn't like the long hours, and the lack of upper corporate support. You were left on your own to run the rest when the proprietor is MIA. There was no accountability for the proprietor. There was lots of stress and no family life if you take an FOH position."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Hold everyone accountable. Be fair to management. Being a proprietor doesn't mean you take extra days off and schedule your one manager to close every night. All this was told to RVP and nothing was done."
