    I have been working at Sbarro full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The pros are working with people constantly We are like a family at Sbarro and our customers are like relatives that are coming over to eat so we try to give every one a since of fun and suggest meal ideas that we ourselves have tried we give free items daily through promotions we have contests with other stores

    Cons

    Rotated schedules, long shifts, favoritism develops which can effect promotions, in the later years Sbarro has become a push push push sales environment breaking away from the family environment it used to be the company has financial troubles that leads to few raises I haven't received mine for four years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less sales pushing if the products are made right the customers will comeback the pushing only makes them go away

    Interview Details

    I applied in person and was called a few hours later to come in for an interview the following evening. This company was the third interview I had ever had, so I was a bit nervous. I interviewed with the general manager and the process was extremely strange. He didn't really ask me anything of value -- other than what I go to school for and what my career plans were. Other than that, all he did was talk about himself and what the position requires. I was offered a job on the spot and was taken into the store to do my background check and fill out new-hire paperwork. I was really iffy about the job and the professionalism of the management, but I took it anyways because I was a desperate first-year, broke college student. I started that weekend.

Roughly 500 of the locations are company-owned, while the rest of the chain is operated by franchisees.
