It was a decent job but could be fun at times.
Cook, Dish Washer, Cashier, Food Runner (Former Employee), Cape Girardeau, MOJune 27, 2013
Pros: half off everything if you worked that day and free sodas everyday
Cons: people would always just get moved around and not be able to stay in their assigned spot
My typical day at work consisted of cooking a lot of food and keeping the customers happy and have their food out to them as fast as possible. I also washed dishes every time that I worked. I worked anywhere from 4 to 10 hours shifts. I learned that I had to keep everything clean and organized to make my job easier. Also to never let anything get behind – more... or you would get into trouble. The management was pretty good there, The GM was an awesome person and worked well with his employees. The hardest part of the job was when a lot of people came in at once or at closing time. The most enjoyable part of the job was when i worked with somebody i knew and we had a good time working together and we always got everything done early. – less

Fast, friendly, and teamwork oriented.
line cook, server, and dish washer (Former Employee), Fairview Heights, ILJune 16, 2013
During my time at Fazolis I was introduced to working night shifts starting at 4:30pm and ending at approx. 10-11pm. A typical shift consisted of preparing meals for customers whilst maintaining sanitation standards. At approx 9:45 pm, I was required to "break-down" the steam table used to prepare food.I then proceeded to wash all utensils and set the – more... steam table up for the next day.
The 2 years I spent working at Fazolis taught me how to effectively work in a team to continue serving customers in a fast, friendly manner. The most enjoyable part of my job as line cook had to have been co-worker relations; Most of the co-workers made my experience at Fazolis the most enjoyable to date whilst still achieving our goals as a team. – less

I loved working there.
Cashier (Former Employee), Abilene, TXJune 8, 2013
Pros: good breaks, fun time, decent hours
Cons: only one or two good managers, didn't see much room for raises.
I can honestly say I liked working at Fazolis. The managers actually taught me how to do things instead of just telling me I'm doing them wrong. There was ONE manager that I disliked because I would be busting my butt off while she sat on her phone but left soon after I did, thank god! But the other manager would help me out instead of just sit there. – more... There was also a manager who was allowed to have her nails painted but I wasn't, which upset me because that is not fair. The pay is minimum wage but is awesome for teenagers in school because they will work with that. Overall, I loved it there. – less

Ok place to work.
Associate (Former Employee), Fort Dodge, IAMay 14, 2013
Pros: fun co-workers, flexible schedules.
Cons: management communication, doing the same thing over and over again.
Aside from unorganized management, working there was a great experience. Typically I ran the drive thru. That part of the job is the busiest job one can do at Fazolies. There is a lot that is expected of the person on drive. However, if one can handle the stress that job produces, one can do anything else in the store. Management had some serious issues. – more... There wasn't always a lot of communication unless it was about something that was wrong. Some managers are made to do more than they were capable of doing, then punished for not getting it all done. A few of them were not well trained with the technology that played a critical part in their jobs. On the same token, the technology being used is in serious need of an update. My co-workers were, for the most part, great. Everyone had their ups and downs, including myself. The people i worked with quickly became friends that made working at that establishment a great experience. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the stress that working in a successful restaurant in a positive way. The best part of the job was the satisfaction I got from customers that I helped. When a customer was dissatisfied and I helped to fix the problem, ensuring their future business as a part of a response team, it made me feel like I was helping Fazolies grow.Being part of a working team and helping to keep customers happy gave me a great feeling. Overall, a great experience. – less

Pros: free food, fun atmosphere, good people, great management
Cons: low pay, no set schedule
This job is very easy and the hours are good for any student in high school. I had fun working here especially after it was closed. The management was great too. It was very easy to advance in pay and easy to go above and beyond expectations set by the management.

Not a good place to work
Associate (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, CODecember 20, 2012
I enjoyed the work that I did but they were not serious enough there. The managers didn't care about much and they were too lenient. I learned a lot there I got really fast at what I did and I got better at multi tasking. I enjoyed the people that I worked with they were all really friendly and we all got along like a big family. There wasn't anything – more... to hard about the job because it was your basic run of the mill fast food job not too much of a challenge for anyone. Overall this just wasn't a good place to work there wasn't much room to grow there. – less

Server (Former Employee), Fairview Heights, ILDecember 5, 2012
Pros: good discount
a day at fazoli's is fast right as you come in with the customers needing things and you having to get food out. It isn't really a hard job just as long as you do what you are suppose to.

It was a fun job
Cashier/Cook (Former Employee), Charleston, SCNovember 28, 2012
Pros: half off meals
Cons: short breaks
I'd clock in and go straight to counting my drawer down to make sure its correct. Then i'd start taking orders if any, if not i'd clean my area if needed. We always had atleast one manager on duty and 5 co-workers altogether. The hardest part of the job is taking the customers attitude.We try to handle those behaviors in a mannerly way. the best part – more... of our jobs is making sure our customers feel at home and are giving the best customer service. I love hearing about how good we were to them and there stories. – less

This was my first official job and one of my stepping stones in life I learned many valuable skills and working at Fazolis starting my journey for management.If they would have stayed in business I am confident I would be a District Manager or better.
