    Pros

    The staff is very friendly and feels like family. This is a fun fast paced environment to work in. Tips are great.

    Cons

    The restaurant is open 365 days a year. If you are not used to working extremely hard this job is not for you!

    Advice to Management

    Try encouraging staff once in awhile instead of pointing out everything that you think is wrong. Look at the numbers & customer reviews & listen to what they are telling you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at BUCA (Columbus, OH) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume to Buca and received a phone call in less than 24 hours. The woman on the other end of the line seemed very excited to meet me, and asked if I could come in for an interview the following day. I agreed. When I met her the next day, she seemed enthusiastic about my resume. We discussed desired shifts and availability. At this point, I thought I had the job. She left to go run my background check (which is clean) and sent another manager in the speak with me. At that time, the interview went south. He was very impersonal. It seemed he did not want to be there at all. He asked me the same questions as the other lady, but treated me like an idiot. When I asked how long the background check would take, he responded with, "a few minutes to a couple hours. Do you know how to get out of here?" Just like that the interview was over. I left feeling very confused. It has been almost a week and I have not received a phone call. Not even to tell me they decided to go with someone else. I find this very unprofessional and rude. Honestly, I am a little relieved. Who want to work in an environment where they are treated in such a manner? No thanks!

Everyone's "famiglia" at these restaurants. BUCA owns and operates more than 85 Buca di Beppo Italian restaurants in about 25 states. Each themed eatery is an over-the-top recreation of a post-war Italian-American restaurant decked out with a hodgepodge of memorabilia. Geared for larger parties of people and event dining, the menu features Southern Italian-American cuisine served family-style to encourage sharing and conversation. Most locations of the casual-dining chain offer a lunch menu (smaller portions for single diners) in addition to its popular dinner options... More
