    Pros

    everyone is friendly, good discount on the food, management treats you like family. they help you advance within the company if you want to, they're there to help you whenever you need. the regulars always remember you.

    Cons

    pay is decent but could be higher, open everyday of the year and hard to request holidays off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer promotions and pay raises to employees who work hard and show improvement rather than just to people with more experience.

    Pros

    Great Food, Great Environment, Great Team. This is the Best Place I have worked. Buca has a unique history and lots of growth potential, eight new locations in the last year!

    Cons

    Long hours, and open three hundred sixty five days a year. Including Thanksgiving and Christmas these past two years. It’s been busy on these major holidays, so we are making money, but we would rather spend time with our family if only one day a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for being very open to your employee’s ideas and I appreciate your ability to coach your team so that we are all more successful through your leadership

    Pros

    Great camaraderie, used to have a great training program. The culture of the company was fun, guests were always impressed with the large portions and small basement-like dining rooms. Flexible schedule, opportunities for internal advancement.

    Cons

    Larger more corporate feel than in years past when it wasn't owned by a corporate restaurant company. Training program waxes and wanes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the training program and be consistent.

    I worked at BUCA full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    People have to tip well because its so expensive, big parties typically mean big money as well and theres lots of those

    Cons

    You work every holiday whether you want to or not. Didnt seat my mother in my section on mothers day even when she requested it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    some time off, and pick one manager to run the place not different managers with different rules
