I have been working at Uno Restaurants full-time (More than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Staff is team oriented. Managers listen & help. Sales contests. 401K and medical benefits. Vacation pay. Great environment. Discounted meals. Great food. I cannot stress enough what a great restaurant Uno's is, but I am referring to the Uno's in Astoria, New York. Fantastic general manager, and managers working there. Everybody is helpful to each other. It's a competitive, but fun atmosphere, with almost daily contests. The cooks are amazing, and its delicious food. They update the menu to keep it cost friendly to the guests. Managers are always around to help you.
It is a VERY corporate environment. Cover average is always checked and they have certain things they want you to do, like signing people up for insiders, as they have no other means of advertisement. Other than that, there's no real downside. There is quite a bit of side work at times, but that doesn't really bother me. I will say, if you are working in the downtown Chicago Uno's, though, it is controlled by the Union. It has entirely different rules and a different way of doing everything, such as scheduling, seniority, medical benefits & your 401K (which are non existent, with the Union). It's slow season is extensive. The kitchen has no computer, but you have to find your tickets & write the table number on them. This, though, is only in the downtown Chicago restaurants.
Advice to Management
Spend some money on advertising, to focus less on the Insiders. A lot of times people are already signed up for the club, or sometimes people don't want to be bothered with filling out paperwork when they're eating out, or they just don't want to give their email out.

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Uno Restaurants.
Quick scheduling. Only one short interview with store manager. Asked only a few behavioral and experience questions. The manager seemed to mostly be judging my inter-personal skills, so they were not too focused on my previous experience. They indicated and then followed through on providing most of the training on the job.

Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
The Uno® story begins in Chicago in 1943 when Ike Sewell developed deep dish pizza and opened a new type of restaurant at the corner of Ohio & Wabash. It was here that Ike served a pizza unlike any that had been served before. Today, Uno® still draws its identity and inspiration from the artisan heritage of the original. Each restaurant still makes their deep dish pizza dough fresh every morning. Currently UNO Restaurants, LLC encompasses the UNO Pizzeria & Grill, UNO Fresco, UNO Due Go and UNO Foods brands!
