    I worked at Carrabba's Italian Grill full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great, made-from-scratch food that you feel happy to describe and serve to guests
    Flexible schedule
    Possible to move-up in restaurant i.e. bartender, shift supervisor
    Employees treated well, respected, appreciated
    Good training and continued refreshing of food and beverage knowledge.

    Cons

    It's a restaurant job so the expectation to handle a fast-paced, high-stress work environment applies here.

    I worked at Carrabba's Italian Grill part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fun, energetic atmosphere; attractive career advancement opportunities-even for those without college degrees; diversified company (Bloomin Brands). You have the option of transferring to other restaurants natiowide or other opportunites within the company that involve travel, which can be pretty exciting. Performance bonuses as well. Comfortable uniforms. Good food and wine. Knowlegeable staff, adequate training. Flexible schedule. Managers will usually work around class schedule. Uses Hotschedules.

    Cons

    Inexperienced, and sometimes immature, managers burden staff by making the restaurant susceptible to chaos. (This is not true for all regions and not every manager) Favoritism at times. Fluctuating income; some nights/weeks are super-busy and others are super-slow. There is a ton of pressure on management to maintain numbers which can be stressful. Normal everyday restaurant drama.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your staff well so you don't have to micromanage them. This only leads to poor overall performance as you end up neglecting your own responsibilities. LEAD BY EXAMPLE.
