I have been working at Carino's Italian Grill

Pros

Always a young fun staff, great corporate structure with many resources available for any help needed. The food is great and the process by which food safety and quality is met is very streamlined creating confidence in your position because there is always an answer somewhere.

Cons

There are long hours and late nights, slightly limited in what you can and cannot do for guest recovery, advertising, community involvement, and advertising because of the corporate structure. Managing young wait staff can be tedious. A lot of extra cleaning and detail wokr is required by lower paid staff in order to ensure lower costs and to make up for the fact that they pay no outside vendors to attend to any cleaning in the restaurant so servers and cooks and bussers have to maintain all facilities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A couple more dollars spent on abor during the day would go a long way in ensuring that the restaurant facilities were maintained properly and that guests are properly cared for. An extra couple of servers or an extra host or busser may cost us a couple of dollars in profit for that day, but a guest that does not come back because they did not have good service or food because the FOH and BOH are more worried about their cleaning responsibilties than they are about taking care of them can cost quite a bit in money we will never see because those guests never came back.
