Not a great place to go but if you really need a job...
Not a great place to go but if you really need a job they will probably hire you good for a summer or so but if plan on staying long term find a job where you have as little interaction with the management as possible.

Best place to work!!
Worked for this company for 7 years and moved up many times. It’s like a family whether you’re a server, cook, manager host, etc. Very fun work environment and made great money. Also, learned a lot in different positions to improve my work ethic and make it more broad.

Great place to work
Loved working here, managers were amazing and understanding, great employees, opportunities to work your way up. Fast paced and well put together. There was a small understaffing problem but overall great job.

Mostly Boring, sometimes agitating
A typical day for me anyways is boring. Most of the people I work are pretty cool but I do notice a trend that a lot of them want to quit. Some of the managers are really bad about lateral communication and that gets supper frustrating.

Good place to work
Depending on your team, it is a great place to work and make good money. Terre Haute is a great example of a store run correctly for employees, customers and investors.
ProsGreat food

Good place to start
Obviously not everyone will be wanting to make bussing a long time career, but for someone who is in high school and is wanting to make some money, this is the perfect start to do so.

Management bias
They ask for your availability then ignore it and put someone who can’t come in were you said you could then call last minute for you to pick up the shift then one manger always got on people who were working hard while her favorites sat on the floor hiding from customers

Texas Roadhouse
working at Texas roadhouse is very energetic fast paced. Management has helped excel me from a server to an hourly manager. The key hourly position has taught me how to manage and delegate things to have a shift transmitter. Working for the roadhouse has taught me a lot.

The management is honestly terrible they don't do anything as there job as a manager but be on phones as well as playing favorites for the suck ups as servers us bussers and host get treated very poorly terrible hours terrible income at a rate of $4.45/hr (bussers) I see all these rewards and honestly think how? They servers snipe hours by sitting on there phones for closing shifts instead of working to get the hours in then don't pre bus there table and leave a full table of dishes and tell the busser to do it for them by begging it's honestly terrible then all the staff are very poor in leadership and lack of communication and responsibility as a real Manager (TXRH alliance OH) don't recommend it is a easy way to get manipulated and used for no money I just worked 3 days as 16.3 hours and got 95 in pay check they servers keep the money more then putting them in the system personally saw server put a tipped cash in purse right away very terrible for us host and bussers for hour "tip share" and very over hiring easiest hire don't even really interview you.

How long does it take for them to call you after you've done the online application for the location you want?
Asked Feb 28, 2017
I applied on their website and they called me back two days later.
Answered Jan 22, 2020
If they don't call you that day, call the store you applied for the next day! "Hi, my name is ____, I put in an application yesterday and was wondering if I could speak with a manager." Nothing is better than an ambitious employee!!!!! We love new employees who are ready to join the team!

Do they drug test?
Asked Aug 24, 2016
Lol, no. The turn over rate is too high and so are the kitchen guys. Just kidding. They don't drug test unless you get hurt on the job and need workers comp. That's kinda the standard at all corporate restaurant chains.
Answered Nov 14, 2019
No I didn't have to take a drug test.

What is the interview process like at Texas Roadhouse?
Asked Apr 26, 2018
You have to study and pass a menu test before they will hire you
Answered Mar 29, 2020
I got seated at a booth and asked if I wanted any water. Manager came out asking me why I wanted to work at Texas Roadhouse, what my favorite part of serving was, what my least favorite part was, my availability, etc. They then ran through dress code, what the training process is like and asked if I had any questions. They then have you come in for a second interview. The second interview, they asked me what I would do if conflict with another server occurred, why I chose Texas Roadhouse again, my availability again, and if they like your answers, they will hire you. If hired, they give you a welcome sheet and ask that you get your alcohol serving license and what to bring to orientation. Pretty simple.
