I have been working at BUCA full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great opportunity to relocate all over the US. Very good benefits and competitive salaries.

Cons

Family style is a hard sell. They over promises and under deliver on large groups often.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

DVPs don't have any idea who is competent and how the restaurants are truly run. Seeing a DVP once every 3 months is ridiculous. Buildings are in need of serious repairs.

    I worked at BUCA

    Pros

    work hours were good, that's it though

    Cons

    regional manager threatened everyone weekly, very negative, unattainable goals, they don’t pay their bills, vendors putting us on C.O.D. or just refusing service, restaurants dirty, food overpriced, anything goes wrong you are threatened with termination. No job security. Cooks and servers struggle because of ridiculous labor budgets, high turnover, very low morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat people with respect, not threats and intimidation. invest in your people and restaurants. pay your bills
