    I worked at Romano's Macaroni Grill part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good food.
    Some really great servers
    They have a lot of culture for a chain. Ex: Traditions to break the bread with your hands to share with family, no knife tradition, heartstone over fireplace tradition.

    Cons

    Highly disorganized system. YOU WRITE DOWN WHO HAS WHAT TABLES and if someone else seats and doesn't tell you, you get blamed.

    As a host, you clean bathrooms, take to-go orders, seat tables, handle reservations, buss if there isn't a busser, and help out servers. Most of the time, you do all of this at once. Especially morning shifts.

    PRETTY SURE I DIDN'T GET PAID MINIMUM WAGE since tip share was split over so many people

    Advice to Management

    Get your crap together, and don't blow up on your hosts just because things are hard. Management can be real jerks. Pay us fairly


  2. "Over worked managers, total focus on labor, labor, and labor, some what of a bonus program for General Managers"

    I worked at Romano's Macaroni Grill full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, competitive salary, health benefits (expensive and incomplete). Lots of marketing help from the marketing dept., including t.v.

    Cons

    LONG HOURS. Constant leadership change along with company philosophy. High hourly turnover caused by a fast food labor matrix which leads to over worked managers. Team members quit at an alarming rate because of the lack of a consistent schedule

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is totally out of touch with the operators. The constant couponing, along with the overwhelming emphasis on labor forces management to work in hourly roles for long periods
