I have been working at Pappasito's Cantina full-time (Less than a year)
This place has excellent training programs, especially for those that are first time servers
The staff and management show a high level of professionalism while still keeping it a relaxing atmosphere
The restaurant is very well maintained and shows the company exudes pride in their business
Everyone makes you feel welcome, whether you are a new or seasoned employee
Advancement paths are readily available
Teamwork is very strong with this company
The company has a positive image with tons of growth potential and appears to be expanding further and further
-Work can be stressful at times when you get busy traffic or excessively demanding customers, but that is part of the industry and generally means you will be taking more money home that day.
-This specific restaurant (maybe other locations too) can be a little tight on space and difficult to maneuver around as a server
-Pay isn't the best but it is standard. Unless you have the time and commitment to move up in the restaurant industry it is not ideal for sustainable income in the long-term.
Advice to Management
Nothing I can think of.... The management team does a great job and the general manager especially is awesome and gets along very well with all staff.
I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pappasito's Cantina.
He asked about behavioral and situational example. He wanted to know about how you would react in stressful situations and in busy times where there would be understaffing and rude customers.
