    Pros

    There was a very laid back atmosphere, and the management staff was very understanding.

    Cons

    Specials run by the establisment while good for the customer, caused issues in tips for servers. Overall, it was difficult to make a living.

    Pros

    Good pay, great co-workers, overall an excellent place to work! Loved having a set schedule every week - not a guessing game when the schedule was posted!

    Hated working 2nd shift, but those are the hours needed to get the money! rough on my own vehicle!

    I worked at LaRosa's full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    working there was a great experience, the people i was working with always made work fun. there was never a dual moment when i was working there. the fact i got to keep 100% of my tips every night was amazing.

    Cons

    the managers didn't really know how to treat most of their workers. I'm a little disable and they made me do the stuff that i honestly couldn't do without help and thats how i had to do things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop hiring all friends when you hire someone don't hire all high schoolers from the same school i know there is more people applying for the jobs where you don't have to get people from the same school it just causes drama and a lot of it.

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

    Pros

    As a server the pay is pretty great, but a cook receives minimum wage, however there are potential pay raises if hardworking and dedicated

    Cons

    Management isn't always the best, but do what they can to solve problems.
    Not a high chance for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to make workers more accountable for their actions (i.e: an employee doesn't show up for their shift)

    Decent first job

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at LaRosa's

    Pros

    Free food, and an easy job. Nice coworkers, and always kept you busy. Working and closing alone, with too much work for one person to accomplish in a reasonable time.

    Cons

    Poor management and scheduling. General Manager is rarely around, training is not sufficient when first starting and you have to figure a lot out by your self.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train employees better, and work on scheduling

    I worked at LaRosa's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some good people, discounted food, and also a flexible schedule. Opportunities to move up to management position. Clean environment.

    Cons

    Managers not good at dealing with employees. Unprofessional atmosphere at times. Fast turnover rate of employees, but that's expected at a restaurant.

    Pros

    Fun crowd. Good coworkers. Easy menu. Good Food

    Cons

    The managers don't have much experience and a lot of them are younger. They tend to hire a lot of their friends and there isn't an equal system to scheduling. Employees get treated differently if/because they are friends with the managers. Employees who aren't good friends with the managers will get less hours, more outwork, more taks, stricter rules, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better managers. The GM needs to take control and be aware of what his other managers are doing.
