    I worked at Old Spaghetti Factory Canada part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great big staff, incredible people fun chill work environment, flexible schedule, easy to get hired, great entry level job for hostesses/servers.

    Cons

    you don't start until they're ready for you, which often leads to waiting in the staff room unpaid for hours and only working to serve three tables and walk out with less than $20 tips. Unstable tips, up to $100 but very rarely much more.

    Advice to Management

    Start your servers on their start times.

    Lots of hours if you ask, attentive training, understanding managers, good tips.

    Advice to Management

    Check in with staff more often to see how they are handling everything.. but overall not too many complaints!
