    Loved working at Buca

    Hostess (Former Employee) Thousand Oaks, CA

    ProsGreat staff/management to work with
    Decent pay (hence the 4 stars)
    Fun environment
    You get to try the food when you first work there and when new items are featured on the menu!

    ConsNot enough hours, this was my only issue when I worked here. Especially for a loyal employee who wants to work and cover other peoples' shifts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing! They do a great job at keeping the environment fun and upbeat and that's what keeps happy employees and customers! And When I worked there, I had Gerardo as a manager and he was absolutely amazing. He did a great job at encouraging employees to do what needed to be done in a positive way.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Server (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsMy co-workers were the best part, everyone works as a team. The location was convenient for me.
