    I have been working at LaRosa's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free meal while on the clock and 25% off other times.

    Cons

    Dispatch managers sending and giving the closest and best deliveries to their friends​ without regard for whose turn it is to go out and with the closest order. Working with twenty something children, all the drama and play baby games, the back stabbing from Co workers, 19 year old immature lacking life experience, managers. Drivers who put off hard out duties to new drivers and whose friends are managers and get... away without doing their fair share of work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire adults as managers, stop allowing all the play baby drama games from the little boy drivers who think they are grown men and are rude to other co-workers. Offer health insurance and vacation time after a year of employment and you will retain mature consciousness workers instead of kids.

    I have been working at LaRosa's full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You're taken care of at work. One of few restaurants that will feed you for free as long as you ask. If you're a hard worker, managers will work with you on scheduling and flexibility. The company shows appreciation for their employees in many ways as well. The servers typically work well together as a team, and even work well with managers on proper times to make cuts.

    Cons

    Patience is definitely a virtue here, especially with the predominantly teenage cooks. Income as a server is inconsistent, as business is very up and down depending on the location and clientele. Staffing is inconsistent some days too; one day you're understaffed, and the next day it's overstaffed.

    Advice to Management

    The way you staff and structure servers needs updating. Decide on a system (rotation, sections, etc) and stick with it. Work with your employees, yes, but be consistent.

    I worked at LaRosa's part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    No boss most the time. Got yo be on your own while delivering the orders. Only had a boss when back at the store.

    Cons

    Beat up your own car. The company does pay a mileage based on the amount you deliver but this is tough to save.

    Advice to Management

    Good job.

    Decent hours, flexible hours, can somewhat make your own schedule, decent on request offs
