    Pros

    Starting as a server, UNO offered me with immediate management opportunities which I took. The training was fairly easy and was more about getting to understand day to day operations.

    Cons

    Constant change in the corporate philosophy, unstable hours, low pay, and no opportunity to grow above assistant general manager


  2. A wonderful company to work for, that really cares about their employees.

    Pros

    Good paid vacation time. Availability to transfer across the U.S. Great working environment. Fast pace industry Managers seem like they actually care about you, and you aren't just another employee to them.

    Cons

    Not very many vertical opportunities to move into after you reach the managerial level. Christmas is a restricted holiday to request off.

    Pros

    They recognize hard work by their employees and have a great benefit package that really helps out when sick. They constantly update and change the menus to keep up with the times

    Cons

    Long hours, you have to work a lot of weekends. Guests can be really annoying and sometimes if you don't have good cooks you can end up getting yelled at because the food takes too long to come out

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees

    Pros

    Under Ian's leadership the ship that is Uno Pizzeria & Grill seems to be righting its course. The new food we have been rolling out for the past year has been tremendous and I expect more good food to come out of this. The pay is good, the opportunity for upward mobility isn't too bad.

    Cons

    The quality of life is really not that great. The bonus structure makes it near impossible to actually make any money. The company says to put it's people first yet time and again more things are pushed down onto management that most other companies would handle in their corporate office. The assumption seems to be that if Uno compensates management with money that you should be willing to sacrifice any sense of personal life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Something has to give with the lack of work/life balance. Reconsider the current bonus structure.

    Pros

    - $9 an hour - Great staff - Decent benefits - employee discount

    Cons

    - Annoying customers -Must always be friendly at all times and happy. - Gets reallllllyyyyyy slowww in some months which means less work days = less money - Other times it gets really busy and hectic - No bussers to clean tables so you must do it yourself

    Advice to Management

    - Employ bussers - Come up with marketing and sales strategies that would bring in people on the slow months.

    Pros

    Great peers to work with Easy menu to learn Paid weekly Met my husband there Flexible schedule... sometimes If management likes you, they will work with you to advance in your career.

    Cons

    treated ridiculously management constantly yelling at people for random things management picking favorites and picking their dislikes and telling employees about it!!! management constantly bad mouthing union members and the union all together no breaks for anyone even if your on a double sometimes the kitchen runs the show instead of the management running it, which is actually OK by me b/c of how horrible the management has become. over the past 6 years that I've been there they have let go of some of the best management that they'll even get.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the employees and the employees will take care of the customers
