    Cons

    At one point I was scheduled everyday for a month plus
    Not enough pay for as hard as I worked
    Management played favorites (a lot)
    Impossibly busy winters

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees about how the company can improve, I left because no one in management was concerned about the struggles I was having. I told them I was working too many hours with not enough pay. Their reply, work less hours. This made me mad, because I couldn't work less hours because I wasn't paid enough to pay my bills. Even with the obscene 14 hr days I was still in the hole, and I didn't have very high bills.


  2. "Satisfying work, but some of the decisions made by upper management were counter productive."

    I worked at Carrabba's Italian Grill full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The food is good, and the people I started with were fun, the atmosphere in the kitchen is relaxed enough for a good time, but not so much that performance suffers.

    Cons

    Training has slidden, upper management bewails the cost of training, leaving the proprietors holding the bag.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the employees for suggestions about things to make Carrabba's a better place to work and eat. They are there every day.
