    Corporate Takeover Diminishes Fun Setting in Family-friendly Restaurant (Oakland Branch)

    Server (Current Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    Pros- Every day is different
    - Somewhat flexible scheduling (works around your unavailability)
    - Tips everyday/every shift

    Cons- Corporate has too much control (over-regulated radio/tv channel options)
    - Not everyone goes through the same training process and so are not as knowledgeable as they should be
    - Corporate workers have not worked their way up: do not have our waiting on tables experience

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrying to make each store the same exact place isn't doing the customers any favors. Each location of PBros should be able to be a little different shaped by the workers there. Almost like a fun new experience every time you walk into a different branch.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Restaurants are well run and management is fair to employees

    Server (Former Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsGood managers
    Holiday perks
    Opportunity for advancement if desired

    ConsNo money when it's not busy
    Time off can be difficult

    Advice to Senior ManagementGood 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It is a complicated experience. Overall, I'd say 45% satisfactory.

    Server (Current Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

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

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementPay 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.

    not a bad place

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Greensburg, PA

    ProsDecent 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.

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

    fun environment to work at

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosfun, fast workplace with lots of money to be made

    Consas the company gets bigger, it's become more corporate.. instead of a family family like they advertise.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
