    Fun environment, inconsistent pay

    Server (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsRelaxed and playful environment, co-workers are trained to always help each other out and be very welcoming to guests. It has a friendly and positive atmosphere

    ConsPay is inconsistent, over staffing of servers, bad sections, difficult to turn tables when food takes so long

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Not my favorite

    Server (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsThey value customer service above all else so you are sure to learn a lot about delivering outstanding customer service.

    ConsVery hierarchical culture (managers treat the rest of the employees like they're useless)
    Expected to know an insane amount about the restaurant (every single ingredient in every single dish, regardless of position)
    No job security

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees with respect and they'll be more productive!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Service for Guests, Horrible Managers

    Server/Cashier (Former Employee) Tempe, AZ

    Pros-Decent Pay/Tips
    -Great Co-workers
    -Awesome Service/Food
    -Attainable Relocation around the valley

    Cons-Managers treat you horribly. Most of the time they are moody, rude and take it out on their employees
    -They say they have an open door policy, but depending on the day, the manager can fire you if they consider it 'being a bad sport' or 'complaining'
    -If your a student, it is hard to work around your schedule
    -Not a lot of room for advancement
    -Little to none employee discount on food

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe customer is not ALWAYS right

    Oregano's is a fast paced, lively environment that gives employees a challenging but rewarding jb

    Server (Current Employee) Chandler, AZ

    ProsThere is ample opportunity to make money as Oreganos is constantly busy and the family atmosphere means that bills are driven up

    ConsOregano's can be a stressful environment for servers as you are forced to take care of a large number of tables in a very busy restaurant

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe nice to employees

    Not bad but not great

    Server (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsCo-workers are cool for the most part, great menu, potential for great pay

    ConsDon't compromise with school schedules, younger managers leave open for favoritism, no breaks during shifts so you're up and moving for hours at a time, have to run food for everyone sometimes before your own which can be frustrating for your tables

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe a little more flexible with school schedules

    Loved working for this company!

    Server (Current Employee) Scottsdale, AZ

    ProsAlways loved coming to work and seeing all my second family. Everyone that works there is a family and the customers can see that we love our jobs which helps us make more money.Always busy, promote from within, great training program, loved everyone I worked with.

    ConsSome typical restaurant drama but overall alot of managers favorite certain people which is fine but when its super obvious it becomes annoying. When managers try and pass down messages from corporate it seems like a competition and employees make it a competition which sometimes makes work not as fun.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWeed out the flukes and dont spend so much time training the impossible. Alot of new trainees would go through training and still be horrible with the guest. I would just not spend so much time on the worthless people.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
