    I worked at Carrabba's Italian Grill part-time (more than a 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.

    I have been working at Carrabba's Italian Grill part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, fast paced dinner rushes, agree with other review if proprietor is good you will like working there

    Cons

    Stressful dinner rushes, high turnover, felt like I should have made more money for the amount of work and the difficulty of tending to all of the new corporate policies for guests
