A typical day at Fazoli's would be first opening up the store by prepping all of the foods you would be using throughout the day, such as making the pasta, sorting and organizing broccoli, sausage, sauces, mushrooms, etc. Once the store opens at 11:00 am, atleast one or two people will be assigned at the front of the house, (front registers and dining area). Two people will be assigned to the drive-thru, but usually one will be working alone (unless help is needed) and the other employee will be washing dishes and/or prepping the garlic breadsticks. One to three people will be assigned for steamtable, bake table and to catch and prepare anything that comes out of the oven. Throughout the day more employees will be coming and going depending on how close it is to the busiest times of the day. There are typically atleast 3 to 4 managers working throughout the entire day, with a total of 6 or 7. All managers are hardworking and very nice individuals that will go above and beyond to meet a customers needs. Most of the employees are hardworking as well, and just as nice. I would say the hardest part of the job would be trying to meet every guest's expectations and needs when it is around the busiest times of day, lunch time and dinner time, especially if we are under staffed for the day. The Bridgeton store is one of the busiest stores in the St. Louis area, so it gets to be overwhelming at times when a large amount of people come into the dining room and through the drive-thru at the same time. The most enjoyable part of the job would be having fun with coworkers and meeting new, friendly people everyday.
