I have been working at BUCA full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Fantastic food!
Staff and management in store all work together.
OK benefits - health insurance is decent for managers; different for part-time staff.

Cons

Corporate doesn't ask those in the real-world situations to evaluate, and makes changes anyway. Cannot negotiate PTO days in considering a position with the company - "take what we offer" is the only option.

Advice to Management

Check with those in the restaurants if things are working or not before making drastic changes.

    I have been working at BUCA part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    everyone is friendly, good discount on the food, management treats you like family. they help you advance within the company if you want to, they're there to help you whenever you need. the regulars always remember you.

    Cons

    pay is decent but could be higher, open everyday of the year and hard to request holidays off.

    Advice to Management

    offer promotions and pay raises to employees who work hard and show improvement rather than just to people with more experience.

    I have been working at BUCA part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free soft drinks (only from tiny cups though, God forbid an employee should have a perk)

    Cons

    Insane corporate structure, scatterbrained management that completely disregards employees' scheduling needs, no chance of advancement (especially for women), no break whatsoever when I worked for 11 hours on a major holiday, lack of hours, sexual harassment, terrible training program, employees get a 50 percent discount on food the days they work, but you are not allowed to take the leftovers home
