    I worked at Sbarro full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I loved working inside the mall. It was a great location and you see a ton of different people. :)

    Cons

    Corporate measures seem unfair. I was offered general manager and come to find out after taking all tests, passing, numerous hours of testing and studying for that position to have it stripped from me to hire a candidate that was a drug addict.

    Pros

    The atmosphere was always fun and my coworkers/manager were easy to work with, made friends with almost everyone. The hours were also very flexible and if you were good at your position they definitely recognized it
