    I worked at Uno Restaurants part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My coworkers were very friendly as most waitresses are. People are very happy when they are on a date, with their family or just eating food in general so for the most part people enjoyed themselves. Seeing the kids that come in for parties or events is so nice. And we get half off the food that we buy from there.

    Cons

    My boss would use me to do tasks that were not at all in my job description (such as change light bulbs or scrub things down). Customers can be very rude and impatient. Also working near the bar during events meant a lot of uncomfortable attention from older men.

    Advice to Management

    Hostesses do a lot more work than people think we do, so treat them with respect and pay them better. We barely get any tips.

    Pros

    I don't have any pros.

    Cons

    Managers that never follow through on what they told you they will do

    Advice to Management

    Value your people. Work with them. Help them, don't tell them you will and never follow through.

    Pros

    Honestly nothing. Everything sucked.

    Cons

    Incompetent managers, the GM comes off as friendly, trustworthy at first but he's foolish too.
    My coworkers were incredibly mean to me and they talk back to managers which never resulted in disciplinary action.
    Sexual harassment constantly from the kitchen staff.
    Filthy location with rats.

    Pros

    More direct communication with managers than you get at most restaurants.

    Cons

    The company violates every labor law it can find, forcing the servers to perform the work of cooks for only $3.27 an hour. In addition, the expectations for customer satisfaction are so ridiculous that the slightest mistake is treated like the most egregious error.

    Advice to Management

    Give corporate an honest report of what is going on in the restaurant so that the vicious cycle is finally broken.

    Pros

    It was on campus, the schedule was flexible, I liked the people I worked with, some opportunity to advance (shift manager), management was friendly.

    Cons

    Very poor pay. I would not have worked there unless I was a student and not needing to make a lot of money.

    Advice to Management

    If you want turnover to be lower, pay your employees more. If turnover is not an issue because most employees are college students anyway, then just keep the low pay I guess.

    I have been working at Uno Restaurants full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I actually like this job. It's easy, and I like my actual store managers.

    Cons

    Last week I worked mostly slow lunch shifts. As such, I made under under minimum wage. In cases like this, the employer is required to compensate the employee up to the level of the state minimum wage. When I received my paycheck, it showed that I had declared a large amount of cash tips, much larger than I actually made. I consulted my time sheet for the week, which I always save, and it showed quite a different number. The new, forged tips, increased my total compensation to a level that the restaurant would not be required to make up the difference.

    I will be filing a formal complaint with the State Attorney General's office.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe don't steal from your employees. Especially when you can't manage to keep staff in the first place.
