    I worked at LaRosa's part-time (less than a year)

    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.

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

    Pros

    Laid back place. Hours aren't too bad. Company cares about their customers.

    Cons

    Not the greatest pay. Huge turn over not always reliable staff. Sometimes customers take advantage of the system and its hard on the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When upping the minimum wage make sure to increase everyone's wages by that amount not just increasing those at minimum wage.

    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 a 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)

    Former Employee - Cook/Cashier in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at LaRosa's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    There really weren't any. There was a 5 dollar discount IF you were on duty, but that's pretty much it.

    Cons

    Management was rude and condescending, supervisor was unprofessional and rude. When I was hired, the manager who hired me didn't tell anyone he hired me, or that I was coming in, I wasn't trained, I was expected to just know everything even though I had never had a job prior to working there. As a first job, it's terrible. I wasn't put on the schedule so I had no idea when to come in or anything, the management was lazy and the training was non-existent. I wouldn't recommend this job to anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nicer, try harder with your workers and be nice to new people, and be more responsible.

    Decent first job

    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
