What people are saying about sick pay at TGI Fridays

  • Best thing

    The people I work with.

    Worst thing

    Everything. No breaks or 5 minute breaks for over 10-12 hour shifts. The managers have no respect for you. They do not care if you have worked over 9 hours with no break, especially if it’s busy. If you are sick at work they do not care and refuse to send you home.

  • Best thing

    Experience, 50% on food

    Worst thing

    Lack of respect, rules, overworked, false promises, breaks taken away, sitting out for free on standby, constant change in protocol, never listen


    TGI Fridays Employee, May 2023

  • Best thing

    No micromanagement

    Worst thing

    No breaks unless more than 6 hours


    TGI Fridays Employee, April 2023

  • Best thing

    Great team even if you had a busy shift you’d always have a laugh and just a good time in general. You’re treated great and the pay is great.

    Worst thing

    If you’re on a single shift you’ll only get one maybe 2 5 minute breaks if you’re lucky


    TGI Fridays Chef, November 2022

  • Best thing


    Worst thing

    No such thing as breaks unless you work a double shift. Disabilities are never properly taken into account. Pay is bad in comparison to other places.
