    I worked at Catalina Restaurant Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I made good tips being a TL but since store runs short staffed, you end up being an over paid waiter, not able to lead team.

    Cons

    Customers ask for management all the time to voice their concerns. Understaffed, understaffed, Carrow's had no GM for 3 months.

    Advice to Management

    Abandon labor scheduler with guest count determining how many workers to have. Back room employees are important and get cut. Does not work. Never will.

  3. "Be aware of what you're getting into"

    Pros

    Good food, nice people, friendly environment

    Cons

    You will be timed in all you do and working the job of 5 people. Understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Hire mystery diners so you know what's going on in all your restaurants.
