    Pros

    Hours, there's plenty of work in the busy city. The experience-fundamentals for hospitality environment, such as but not limited to; Hostess/Greeting, Sales/Pitching, the importance of product knowledge, customer service, mixology, food prep, stock, and others.. Lastly, Sometimes you meet locally important people and celebrities, that pop in.

    Cons

    Long shifts. Low pay. Some store managers are not so invested in their staff. No time for a personal life. Majority of the staff is un-professionally involved with each other.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your good workers, help develop them, encourage them. Stop wasting your time on personal relations and relationships within your stores and the company. Lead you people and set examples.

          I worked at Così part-time for more than 5 years

          Pros

          Nothing nada zip zero none.

          Cons

          Flexibility depends on the manager, managers are taken advantage off from cooperate people higher up in the company, hours vary "according" to business, raises are a joke, they only give you a raise yearly because the state mandates it, you have General Managers who are illiterate and cannot operate a simple Windows machine and treat employees worse than a dog, health and insurance are a joke too, many hourly partners...

          Advice to Management

          DON'T TREAT YOUR EMPLOYEES LIKE PAWNS AND CUT THEIR HOURS BECAUSE THEY DON'T MEET YOUR STANDARDS. HR SHOULD BE MORE INVOLVED.
