    I worked at Sbarro full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment meet people all day long. Great food that you get at a discounted prices. I enjoyed working there.

    Cons

    You work long day and on your feet a lot. They pay isn't the best of course but what do you expect?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase employee pay to reduce turn over rates. Mix up the menu some add some fresh options like a salad.

    I have been working at Sbarro part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It's fun to make pizza.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great. It's higher than minimum wage though. You burn yourself a lot on the oven and lights. The store is badly in need of remodeling. Conflict with co-worker. Assistant Manager wants to quit after other assistant manager quit. Other co-worker quit yesterday. Boss wanted me to come in sick but I got a doctor's note so he couldn't tell me to come in.

    I have been working at Sbarro full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pros are working with people constantly We are like a family at Sbarro and our customers are like relatives that are coming over to eat so we try to give every one a since of fun and suggest meal ideas that we ourselves have tried we give free items daily through promotions we have contests with other stores

    Cons

    Rotated schedules, long shifts, favoritism develops which can effect promotions, in the later years Sbarro has become a push push push sales environment breaking away from the family environment it used to be the company has financial troubles that leads to few raises I haven't received mine for four years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less sales pushing if the products are made right the customers will comeback the pushing only makes them go away
