    Pros

    co-workers become like family because we are all stressed out with the kitchen and managment.

    Completely unorganized. Management is horrible and nobody is held accountable for anything. No professionalism at all.

    Get rid of the management and start over.

    I worked at Romano's Macaroni Grill part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing coworkers and great management style, managers actually help identify how employees can be doing better and get on the floor if needed, free training meals

    Cons

    Few hours (though you can always get more by kissing up to the scheduling manager), extremely slow business, constantly changing upper management that causes employees to keep changing both climate and knowledge, as well as regulars being driven off by changing policies

    Advice to Management

    Talk to us and inform us about what we're doing wrong before penalizing and THEN helping
