    I have been working at Carino's Italian Grill full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    High turnover so if a person puts in time and effort they will have the ability to earn. Typically a good staff that will help newer and younger staff learn the job.

    Cons

    High management turnover creates a mix of policy and procedures that can be hard to follow, or hard to know what's expected.

    I worked at Carino's Italian Grill part-time

    Pros

    It can be a fun environment to work it, but it can also be boring. It usually depends what mood the GM is in.

    Cons

    There is no opportunity for growth. While I understand that it is a restaurant job, if you want to move up from hostess to server it is really hard to do unless you are the managers favorite, or another manager moves you up while the GM is unavailable. There is a large turn around for workers because people don't want to work with certain management.
