      Pros

      Flexible Hours Learning Experience Great Management Discounts on food Friendly Workplace

      Cons

      The only con I can think of is only being allowed 3 tables at a time for first month or two, but even that is not bad considering you are still learning the ropes.

      Pros

      Decent tips, made on average 60-100 or more a day, hourly pay is decent, flexible schedule. Decent management team.

      Cons

      The all you can pasta deals sucks, money can be better, you only get 3 tables to serve, they push you to up-sell aggressively.
