    Pros

    Fun energetic people to work with. Fast-paced environment that lots of friendly people. One of the best places I worked at.

    Cons

    Money is really tight during off season. BOH rotated a lot, and many of them had trouble getting out food on time. Some customers were a little more annoying than others, but that's part of the job.

    I worked at Carrabba's Italian Grill part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Money can be very good if you work hard.
    Usually you can find great friends in your coworkers, as the mutual dislike of the customers can easily start a conversation or friendship. Lol.
    Flexible schedule is a great pro.

    Cons

    You have to deal with unhappy and/or hungry people all the time.

    Advice to Management

    I know this is easier said than done, but there is something to be said for a manager who can walk the line between too nice and too strict. I have had managers on both sides of the spectrum and both are difficult to work under.

    I worked at Carrabba's Italian Grill (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is really good, free meals, fast paced and your time goes by on a good day. Fun people good hours.

    Cons

    Some people are rude, if they were there for a couple years or more they are very cocky. They nit pick a lot if they are frustrated from the fast paced work.. Weekend do suck only because they can't control their temper when we are under pressure..

    Advice to Management

    Address employees if they are constantly causing people to quit. You would keep a lot more friendly employees that way. Overall the management team was great I loved them all just didn't do a good job at addressing certain problems because they don't want to anger the person because they are good at the work and have been there over a year

    Pros

    Nice and friendly atmosphere. Managers are great to work with. Team work by most employees. Good food with a nice discount as a employee.

    Cons

    A lot of young servers and they can be very clickish during working hours. One manager shows to much favoritism within the work. Place.

    Advice to Management

    Be more precise with job roles among employees and don't let favoritism become a problem within the workplace. Be fair to everyone.
