    I have been working at Primanti Bros. part-time

    Great Customers
    Fun Friendly Place
    A lot of money to be made!
    Availability of hours

    Cons

    Management can be harsh but understanding

    Advice to Management

    Treat Employees equally

    I worked at Primanti Bros. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Regular customers made my day
    - Not using a blender to make shakes
    - Co-workers were helpful in accomplishing tasks, most of the time

    Cons

    - I would ask management to get more diversity in my shifts, since working mornings only gave me very little benefit, and nothing was done for months
    - Management was unhelpful and lazy in the front of house operations
    - Our orders were always late, behind, or forgotten. Always running out of something that we needed whether it be food or alcohol.
    - Management did little to nothing to solve problems between employees. They would rather let the employees working out the issue which only furthered inner conflicts

    Advice to Management

    I surely hope things have changed since I left. I remember that upper management was difficult to work with but, you've got to step up your management inside your own store.

    I worked at Primanti Bros. part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers
    Fast-paced
    Potential to make decent money

    Cons

    Management is horrible. They are incredibly disorganized and make a fun atmosphere absolutely pitiful.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees a little praise! They work hard for you all to make your money for you and it's very discouraging.

    I worked at Primanti Bros. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people, out of every job I've ever had I ran into the most genuine and kind people in the world, and most are going to be life long friends.

    Cons

    The cooperate side. Cooperate management is bossy, will do shady things to make there business look better, and then get mad at the store managers for all the mistakes the cooperate managers have made.

    Advice to Management

    Don't insult your employees, don't come up with rules that cater to your mindset, but instead the mindset of your employees. You know, the people that make your business run.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great co workers

    Cons

    Management doesn't know what it's doing half the time, and expects you to pick up the slack. They promise you the world on moving up and nothing gets done. They constantly say one thing and it never happens and they wonder why they have major turn over every 3-5 months.

    Advice to Management

    Start acting like a leader and not a coworker, give credit to those who deserve it and stop using those who work their butts off for you

    Pros

    Can be good money, people are usually friendly and nice,

    Cons

    Management will play favorites (if you don't have kids or are not living on your own and the other employees complains enough, you'll get screwed.) Lately I've felt as if hardwork isn't as appreciated

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the employees who workR hard and give you their time and life. Make sure they know you appreciate them, and don't screw them over just because they are a good worker, reward them for it instead.

    Pros

    Great tips, decent management, always room for more hours

    Cons

    When it's slow season-it is SLOW, some days there are way too many servers working at once
