    I worked at Pappasito's Cantina full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The food is good and workers get a meal for free while training.

    Cons

    Training is intense. There is so much to memorize in a short time. You might work a double and get off at 11pm and they'll ask you to study that night before coming back the next day.

    I worked at Pappasito's Cantina part-time

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with, especially my fellow servers, bartenders, bussers, and BOH staff. We had a set schedule so I always knew what days I worked, but we did use HotSchedules so it was very flexible. Mid-range price points, good tips. Lots of room for growth and promotions. Top management was very supportive.

    Cons

    I did not like the big top procedure. You have to split tables over 10 with another server. They were usually more trouble than they were worth. There was also an issue with manager favoritism at the location I worked at.

    Advice to Management

    Less favoritism, more professionalism. Overall, my experience at sitos was very good.
