    I worked at Tony Roma's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It is a great place to work. High volume and long hours are what I liked about it. I also made good money and that's what the jobs about most the time.

    Cons

    The company itself is not a company that I would want to move up in. They don't really take care of the people that work so hard for them.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be your employees friend and be their manager. The company needs to have more consistency, organization and people need to held accountable for their actions.

    I worked at Tony Roma's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was given a flexible schedule and the training was good. The other employees were usually pretty helpful and the upper level management was around more than I would have expected.

    Cons

    Servers had to do work that often took away from the guests' experience (like prepping our own salads and desserts to order). Quite often, I had to work split shifts and lived to far away to go home or to do anything in between.

    Advice to Management

    The employee discount program is almost useless to be honest.

    Pros

    We made some great food, good hours and decent pay. There was room for advancement plus locations around the world.

    Cons

    I worked at a franchise store as opposed to a corporate store so things were a lot different than they would have been in a corporate store.

    Pros

    Tony Roma's is a long-time, well-established restaurant chain. Franchise stores are allowed some leeway when it comes to menu options.

    Cons

    Franchise stores do not follow corporate guidelines when it comes to compensation.
