Good place overall to work and get experience in the restaurant business. They are flexible on letting you try other positions if you are interested (cook, food runner), which could lead to management opportunities.

    I have been working at Primanti Bros.

    Pros

    Respect from customers as it is a famous restaurant. Hours can [usually] be flexible. Work attire/"uniform" is flexible to a t-shirt and shorts.

    Cons

    The neighborhood has gone bad recently and the customers/tips aren't what they use to be. Management is run by a family, it may not make the best choices for a business but it supports the immediate family. One must be "accepted" by the family to maintain a job, even if you are a good worker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the work ethic of your employees. Don't listen to hear-say, actions speak louder than words. Everybody should be treated equally at the work place.

    I worked at Primanti Bros.

    Pros

    Decent atmoshphere. Most people were friendly to get along with. Manager a little pushy when stressed, but that wasn't always the case. Relatively flexible for off time.

    Cons

    Sometimes had to deal with jerks as customers (I guess you run the risk of that anywhere). Was sometimes blatantly obvious management had no clue what was going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rely a little more on the advice of the people on the floor. They may see things you do not.
