    I have been working at Carrabba's Italian Grill full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work with some great people.. only thing that makes going to work worth it

    Cons

    Management .. young and unprofessional.. years of experience dont always translate into best managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on consistency inleadership... worry more about the restaurant instead of airing personalthings to all of staff during a shift.. we all have our own lives and do not need to show interest in what you are buying or who you think is "hot"

    I worked at Carrabba's Italian Grill part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Descent earnings. Menu and prices attract a better clientele.

    Cons

    Very conservative company with outdated management styles and awful corporate practices. STUFFY uniforms. You are worth as much as your sales (of overpriced wine.) A lot is expected of you without much recognition or opportunities to advance. Good performance is rewarded with more work and responsibility. Little concern for employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not treat employees like they are disposable. It does not feed loyalty or motivate them to give extra effort. To run a restaurant smoothly and efficiently you should strive to reduce turnover and maintain a staff of well trained, educated servers. And finally, stop trying to cut on labor costs at your employees' expense, and schedule food runners!
