I worked at Carrabba's Italian Grill part-time (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Very conservative company with outdated management styles and awful corporate practices.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!
