ASG - Auxiliar de Serviços Gerais (Former Employee) says"Paga mal e a gerência trata funcionários sempre com falta de educação"
Head Waitress (Former Employee) says"The one good thing about this place was that I’m pretty sure now I can handle anything in a work environment. Management receives so much pressure from corporate about numbers that they lose sight of what really makes a full service restaurant succeed- happy servers. Incredibly toxic work culture, harassment is always dismissed, and even the hourly positions in the kitchen are paid garbage. Cons: Pretty much everything else"
Server/Bartender (Former Employee) says"Nothing good about this job from management/ownership on down. Customers expect champagne quality for beer prices. Very impersonal service. All servers are expected to run everybody else’s food. Customers often don’t know who there server is. More of a factory than a family environment. Stay away, far, far away. Worst job I ever had. Don’t say you weren’t warned! Cons: Everything"
Server (Former Employee) says"Was always told I was useless even when I continued to work my butt off. Manager always talked down on me. Did everything I could for a company that did not care about me or my feelings."
Prep Cook/Dishwasher (Former Employee) says"This company cares nothing about their people or the equipment they are supposed to use to perform their duties. They have a high turnover rate and will require you to work double shifts if your relief does not show up for work. There are no breaks, no meals and no benefits but on the plus side you will leave feeling overworked and underappreciated on a daily basis. Cons: Working with unsafe equipment and being treated like a piece of feces."
Atendente (Former Employee) says"Trabalho no Outback Steakhouse a 2 anos . Minha vida social acabou , vou ao médico a cada 3 meses com problemas nos nervos e ainda somos obrigados a fazer outros trabalhos que não foram concordamos na hora de contratar o funcionário ."
Server (Current Employee) says"the managers are horrible and do not care about you only themselves. they definitely have favorites so do not be surprised when they get all the good shifts. also, they are not flexible and always schedule you to work on the days you cant. Cons: too many to list."
Server (Former Employee) says"I had a horrible experience at outback Steakhouse. They never followed up with any requests I had and the scheduling was very inconsistent. Many people were very drama oriented."
Server (Current Employee) says"September 12, 2020 Cons: Kitchen safety, sanitation standard, employee appreciated levels are all below standard"
Server/Bartender (Former Employee) says"The title says it all, worked for them for 6 years, wasn’t just me unhappy with the ENTIRE front of house management staff. The manger that lied and got me fired, got fired herself a month later for her dirty and down right unethical management style and back stabbing traits. Cons: Not enough space to list all...... literally"
Server/Bartender (Former Employee) says"Working at Outback Shelby felt like having to do community service every day. The money is little, co-workers are clueless, management is nonexistent (kitchen manager is creepy) and the clientele act entitled. Save yourself the anguish and find a more unique, fun restaurant to work at in the area."
Dishwasher (Former Employee) says"managers only care about advancing their careers and don't care who they step on to do it the owner was a complete clown who abused employees and had inappropriate relationships with managers and staff"
Line cook Outback Steakhouse (Former Employee) says"Straight up save yourself the time and energy into working here. Nothing but bad vibes and management. General managers don’t care and promises of promotion are often never kept."
Runner/Waitress (Former Employee) says"Terrible management. Rediculous below minimum wage pay starting at $8 an hour. No weekend rates or public holidays. No employee benefits. Constantly underplayed and no super contributions. Got about $8 in super in 2 years Cons: Absolutely everything"
Host/ Server / To-go Specialist / Bartender/ Head Wait/ Trainer (Current Employee) says"Management doesn’t care about you. Worked there since i was 16, and only gotten worse since. Pay isn’t good unless it is holiday seasons. No sick day “or you are fired”. No paperwork on write ups or call outs. They have “favorites” and they have employees. They do not follow conduct of orders on employee rights."
Ryan O'Boyle says"My fiancée and I went to Outback Steakhouse in Greenfield, Wisconsin and were immediately hit with the "at least 30 minutes until a table will be available" routine. After waiting quietly off to the side for 17 minutes, another hostess informed us that we could either sit at the bar or in our vehicle. We sit at the bar, two corner seats, clearly adhering to the "socialist distancing" measures while practically forcing our bar mates to play Santa Claus... Thirty-three minutes after being told about 30minutes, we're escorted to our booth. It's still dirty and we stood while they brushed the slop off. We get water and bread, order, and wait. At least 40 minutes elapse and the manager comes out to apologize, asks if we need anything, and brings me a beer, free of charge of course... The food arrives, and my fiancée is given the wrong order. We send it back only to wait for another 5 minutes...the food was very salty and highly overpriced for the quality and size. I did not leave feeling satisfied only thirsty and nauseated. Definitely will not be returning to this establishment."
C Barry Rosengarten says"Went to outback in lakeworth Florida and we left they are not social distancing there tables were all full and too many people waiting in and outside. We will not return to the restaurant any more"
Travis rogers says"We have went to outback in cleveland tn every week for over six months for the first time i never been so discusted waitress could not get nothing right ignored us when we ask for something we complained to manager she took up for the waitress also other customers there seen how we was treated but the manager there did not want here from non of us that pretty crappy service and by the way i dont drink so from now on i will not return to outback in cleveland tennessee that was very wrong"
Pond User says"So Outback Steakhouse in Hawaii Kai overcharges me for food they didn't deliver. The manager of the Hawaii Kai branch said she would take care of it and then ghosted me. Horrific customer service. AVOID THIS PLACE. Just go to Roy's or even Taco Bell."
Sherry Macdonald says"Douglasville GA. The food was awful it was cold and tasted like it was 2 days old. It was not fresh cooked food. It came out of box and was microwaved. $55.00 for frozen boxed food. Will never order or go to this restaurant again. How about having pride and actually fix fresh food. Not a steak house just another fast food establishment."
William Smith says"Worst take out experience ever. Took two hours to receive food. First was told “oh well” then “we are out of your desert” and then “we can’t find one of your steaks”. Watched numerous customers leave swearing and upset. Definitely needs new management."
Chris Unger says"I gave it one star for one reason. I actually love outback my wife and I go twice a week and have for years bone in ribeye every time I have diet issues it's my go-to meal I look forward to it twice a week our waiters are fantastic we love our specific location..... But when they demanded I wear a mask this week ... January 1st 2021...I will never go back they no longer have my business I do not support businesses that comply with this hoax"
Jacqueline Groves says"Today I visited your restaurant at 21 Orchard Park Dr. Greenville SC 29615! The wait to get in the restaurant was long, we arrived at 5:45pm, and didn't get in until 7:00! We dealt with that, once we got in we got water, ordered a appetizer, took 30 minutes to get that, its now 7:30, Ordered our food, which came with a salad, no salad, nor food, until 8:35, the waitress kept coming by, no food, this is the worse service we have ever had, no one should have to wait that long for food. It was ridiculous. No manager came to the table to apologize or anything, and we feel they should have. I usually go to Easley even though I live in Greenville, and have never had this problem! You all really need to work on this situation. It doesn't look good at all. I feel we should get something out of this, but as I said, noone came to the table to apologize."
Larry Dyer says"Went to Outback Steakhouse in Largo Florida on Sunday night 12-20-2020. First the waitress said the blooming onion was over cooked, but try it. When are main dishes came the waitress said to my grand daughter your blooming chicken was over cooked. They brought my Salmon and it was burnt on the outside, I asked to have it returned. Later the manager brought out my Salmon and it was also burnt, but I gave up and ate it. I have NEVER seen Salmon burnt on the outside unless you ask for blackened Salmon."
Keshia Mixon says"Madison at outback steakhouse house in jacksonville nc was a nightmare hope she's still not working there please hire better staff"
Angela Fischesser says"I was very disappointed with Rock Hill outback. I ordered carry out and waited over 30 minutes for order--I had bowl of soup and salad. Three cars on each side of me came andd went while I was waiting. Got here at 6:20 finally got my order 7:03"
Stephanie and Alberto says"When I was younger I remember getting a blooming onion and coconut shrimp at Outback, so when my taste buds were wanting a walk down tasty lane, I said sure! What I received was far from what I remember. Both were over fried and terrible. I was craving light crispy, fried to golden perfection and I didn't. I ended up tossing a 30 dollar meal. What a disappointment... never again!"
Todd Meyers says"We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated promptly that was the best part. When we ordered the steaks were the wrong temp somewhere between med rare and med when one was supposed to be med rare and the other medium. They were fatty and with excessive amount of pepper so you couldn't taste the steak. The cut was a lesser quality that I'm used to at a steak house. I will not go back again only went because I had gift cards."
Brooke Rodenberry says"The food was delicious, but the service was terrible. It took two and half hours from the beginning to ending of our meal. The server was kind, but it seemed they were very low on servers."
James Moon says"Visited our closest Outback Steakhouse on 12/27/2020, Monday for our anniversary. Call ahead seating. My wife and I both ordered the classic prime rib, with sauteed mushrooms and onions, sam adams beer. Waiter seemed disinterested from the start. Waiter came back and said they were out of sam adams. Brought us our prime rib and said they were out of au jus which is supposed to come with it. They did not bring out sauteed mushrooms and onions so we had to wait on them........"
