    I have been working at Fazoli's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good food, friendly customers, clean environment, impressive pay, involved corporate, simple tasks, helpful management. Pros may vary from location to location, but: dependable and friendly coworkers, everyone gets their own apron.

    Cons

    Rushes, the smell, making breadsticks, lack of free meals. The first two can't be changed and they're both bearable. The latter two are both irritating to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Free meals during your break/at least one while working would be considerably appreciated

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Pay was horrible, they expect you to work crazy hours one week, and very minimum the next. The owner refused to give pay raises, we went through 3 GM's in a year because of this. For 3 months I worked 60+ hours a week with no day off. I got yelled at for getting strep throat. After I left, the store closed 2 months later due to no staff.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better!!

    I have been working at Fazoli's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours for anyone in school and food depending on if you like Italian. Opening and closing hours make it feel like you aren't there forever

    Cons

    All stores have way too many manager issues, lazy coworkers, extremely low pay. You run around crazy for an extremely low pay.

    Advice to Management

    If you want labor better then hire experienced people at higher rates. Cannot expect minimum wage to work like they are on salary.

    I worked at Fazoli's part-time

    Pros

    The restaurant I worked at had some of the best reviews of any Fazoli's, so I was probably spoiled. Managers were flexible and actually trained you on various jobs.

    Cons

    you're working in food service...so the usual, rude customers, lazy coworkers, etc.

    I worked at Fazoli's part-time

    Pros

    The only pro was they were willing to work with schedules, and were willing to give me certain days off.

    Cons

    I never got any hours!! I would get 3-6 hours a week and legit got so mad I didn't even give them a two weeks. They didn't even deserve it at this point. Running around constantly and only getting paid 7.75 and hour was not fun. Please spare your time. Horrible company and horrible management.

    Pros

    Half off on food, there isn't much else I can think of.

    Cons

    Filthy work environment, poor management. Some of the products used to make food are outdated.

    I have been working at Fazoli's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay compared to other jobs. Mostly friendly co-workers and managers. Discounts of food even when you're having a day off.

    Cons

    Unorganized staff. Fazoli's in Lee's Summit often under staffed. Scheduling messed up almost every week (I need only Sundays off and can't work morning shift but I still get scheduled for it). Customers constantly complain about more breadsticks

    Advice to Management

    Work on scheduling fairly so that people have similar hours every week instead of working 30 hours one week and only 10 hours the next

    I worked at Fazoli's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family oriented company. Closes in bad weather. Competitive pay for salary management. Clean environments. Offers a great sense of community within the management team across the board. Constantly develops employees.

    Cons

    Offered many things at interview but none became reality. Fast track employment options were unorganized and not clear. Above store leadership constantly changes leading to unsettled environments. Hourly managers and associates do not get competitive pay. Most units are low volume resulting in a working management position. Overall provides a "fake" atmosphere. Nothing is as it truly seems.

    Pros

    There are no best reasons why to work here I was desperate and I needed a job.

    Cons

    Pay is bad they cut your hours without notifying you they criticize you infront of other people

    Advice to Management

    Do your job stop sitting around having everybody pick up after you
