    Pros

    Great good, great benefits, lots of opportunity for career growth

    Cons

    Horrible work life balance if you're in management. Working 60hrs a week is a common and expected thing.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to have more work life balance or managers will keep leaving. Allow us to have more staffing because if we want to be the best in the industry, it takes more people to do it.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at California Pizza Kitchen (Torrance, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online and received a phone call. Scheduled an in person interview. First interview was with manager, and then interviewed with general manager after. The process was fairly smooth and easy and if I am not mistaken, I was offered the job on the spot after speaking with the general manager.
