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

Pros

Good pay, flexible schedules, nice managers, neat atmosphere, room for advancement, meal compensation benefits, nice coworkers.

Cons

You have to pass a menu test in order to work here (which you have to cheat on in order to pass).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Perhaps upper management should take the menu test without proper training. It's impossible to pass. Corporate officials are always out-of-touch with reality and you should not need to know every single ingredient in every single thing in order to just he a hostess or host. I'm pretty sure you can have good hosts who simply don't know EVERY single thing off of the ingredients list.
