I worked at BUCA full-time for less than a year

Pros

quality product, great facility, good concept and sound philosphy for team building and a great recipe book without an exception

Cons

management cliques make newcomers feel excluded and with no hop for a long range plan. a great place for a big party but for a party of four or less it becomes an expensive choice i a market that is flooded with choices

Advice to ManagementAdvice

when moving into a new market listen to the local talent hired to adapt to local market conditions

    I worked at BUCA part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great 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!

    Cons

    Not 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep 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.

    I worked at BUCA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    First starting, th management was great. Everything seemed to be working well, great store morale. Then corporate started changing everything. Got rid of the good managers and brought on some not-so-good management. Really ruined the flow of the store
