    I worked at Luby's part-time

    Pros

    good pay, opportunities for advancement, they work with your schedule, managers are nice, it's kept pretty clean

    Cons

    the handles of the spoons get so hot when you're serving you constantly burn your hands.

    Advice to Management

    protect your employee's hands, it's not that hard to invest in better spoons or better gloves.

    Pros

    First of all the food is really good and employees get a 50% discount on food. You also get a lot of customer experience.

    Cons

    People quit too much and they're always hiring new people. You're easily replaced yet they don't train you that well. Prepare to do much much more than what is stated in your job description. They also give you very little hours. Management are really difficult and will yell for any little thing.

    Advice to Management

    the food could taste better and the management is too rude.

    Pros

    Pay. Small enough company so changes in policy and procedures can happpen overnight

    Cons

    $13000 health insurance, 60-90 hour work week, open every holiday, no appreciation for sacrificing your time with spouse, children, friends, personal time and sleep. Plan to work every holiday. You get paid for your life and thats exactly what they get. Better hire a tutor for the kids. Time to help with homework, forget about it. Your partner needs to get used to eating dinner alone. Lubys is a meat grinder. Your pay is based on 9% of the profit. You might have a good month and then corporate pays repair bills from 6 months ago that will eat up your paycheck. They are strategic about that. Everything is taken from your paycheck. From labor, corporate marketing..... everything....

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the work hours and reduce the insurance cost.
