    I worked at The Original Gino's Pizza part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Decent pay
    -Flexible hours
    -Fun coworkers
    -Good food
    -Relatively clean

    Cons

    -Disorganized management
    -Unprofessional
    -Understaffed
    -HOT
    -Understaffed again
    -No chance to move up

    Advice to Management

    You're aware of how busy you get, don't let yourselves go understaffed for more than two weeks at a time and then demand the same workload of them that you got when you had five people working back there at any given time. Otherwise, you drive your employees off. Also, it might help to communicate with your fellow owners a little. Being given instructions by one owner and then getting scolded by the other owner because 2nd owner wasn't told of instruction change by 1st owner is extremely unprofessional.

    I worked at The Original Gino's Pizza full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers (excluding mgmt) were great, employee discount, busy environment

    Cons

    Roach and rat infested, no professional cleaners, ingredients not original, mgmt runs employees ragged for little $$

    Advice to Management

    Hire professional cleaners and exterminators no matter how busy and famous you are! I've been in service industry for 15 years and this was the dirtiest restaurant I've ever worked in. Roaches climbing into the salad bar, I was afraid I'd accidentally take one with me and infest my home! Tips are poor, average 10%, mgmt works employees ragged for little $$. Also fix the elevator, servers have to hike up 3 floors because elevator is so slow :'(

    I worked at The Original Gino's Pizza full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The uniform is casual and the company itself is kind of laid back, not as many crazy policies as other corporate

    Cons

    Pay is pretty low for all the work you do, most of the time you bus your own tables and make your own drinks

    Advice to Management

    This is a job for entry level servers and should be treated as such sometimes corporate is unaware of what it is to do this job at that pay

    I worked at The Original Gino's Pizza part-time

    Pros

    The best reason is desperation to pay bills, fear of being homeless, or the news to purchase medicine for elderly parents.

    Cons

    Having to work in food service as your friends go on to have lucrative and successful career in prestigious fields working with interesting people.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to stop asking people to fill out an many forms, you asked me to fill out one form to become a member. Then made a second offer with no refuse button.

    Pros

    I loved working at Gino's because you make delicious food for money and get to see the smiling faces of customers as they devour your wonderful creation.

    Cons

    It was good as a summer job, but nothing you can make a career out of...well come people do make a career of it.

    Advice to Management

    There is a lack of communication between employees and management resulting in senseless rules, procedures, etc. The people who do the work understand how to do it better than people who do not.
