Standard mall food court job; wouldn't recommend
Cashier/Host (Former Employee), Memphis, TNAugust 21, 2015
It was a hard company to work for, as it seemed most times that everyone working there, management included, was only in it for the pay and themselves. There was no clear training and everything was learned on the fly. Often, even though there were always supposed to be 2 people and a manager, often times it would just be one person stuck by themselves while the manager was goofing off elsewhere in the mall. The pay and the atmosphere was terrible.

Educational and fun!
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee), Buford, GAAugust 9, 2015
Working at Sbarro has been an excellent experience for me. I've learned many skills that I can apply in both my professional and personal life. I enjoy working with all of my co-workers, every single person there has been an integral part of my development. The hardest part of this job is the strenuous labor but it always pays off in the end when I get to see a customer leave with a smile on their face. My favorite aspects of my job are finding new ways to challenge myself each day I work. I set a goal to learn and implement something new on a daily bases. Working here has helped me improve my life in so many ways. I've developed excellent customer interaction skills as well as managing a team of people, managing responsibility and even managing my own personal life.

co workers with great personalitys
Server (Former Employee), Springfield, PaAugust 5, 2015
Pros: Free food
Cons: 30 minute breaks
It was a fun work place because the managers and co workers always had a positive attitude. Coming into work I always look forward to witness new things and skills that I've picked up without actually being taught.

Productive and Fast paced work environment.
Cashier/ Crew Member (Former Employee), Hoboken, NJJuly 15, 2015
Pros: Free lunch, Reliable, and good atmosphere.
Cons: Not enough hours, tips weren't the best, but that's bout it.
A typical day at work is a busy lunch rush and then a slow period around 3 pm. to restock the refrigerators.
Its a food court so if any other places need some help i would go an help them as well. The food court consists of Sbarro, Manchu Wok, and Subway.
I learn some different techniques everyday and how to make different types of foods like: pizza, garlic knots, and samosas etc.
My co-workers are nice as well as very skilled, hard working, very helpful too. Very reliable when you need some extra help or need to trade shifts.
Hardest part of the job probably just closing up the store. That's probably the only most frustrating part because there's a lot to do in all under about 20 minutes of closing.
My most enjoyable part of the day is the fun we have in the work place. The jokes, laughter, practically being a family its a good feeling.

Sbarro's was a fun and family orientated work enviornment.
Cashier/server (Former Employee), Taylor, MIMay 29, 2015
Pros: Free lunches
Cons: Short breaks
When I first started at Sbarro I wasn't the best at the job task. Thanks to the support and patience of my managers and team mates I got better quickly. Majority of the time on weekends it was very busy, my team mates and managers worked well with me and together with customer service with a smile. Even with rude or impatient customers my managers and team members kept calm and very professional. What I loved most about this job is that it was a fun environment but we still got the job done quickly. The only hard part was keeping up with the customer demand of the fresh and tasty food.

First Job First Days Of Working
Cashier/Server (Former Employee), Exton, PAMay 19, 2015
Pros: Free Lunches, Co-workers, Hours
Cons: None at all
Being at work would be like home. The co-workers were very nice and we got alone right away. The only had part about this job was that it was my first job EVER. i was very nervous the other day but when i came in they put me right to work which i suspected they would do. I started as an cashier and by the end the day i learned just about everything i messed up a few time but i always corrected my mistakes. The best part of the job was i had gotten a lot of hours so i was busy.

great job
Cashier (Former Employee), Eustis, FLMay 4, 2015
Pros: management training, customer service, a lot of hours
Cons: it closed with no more then a days notice
I really enjoyed working at Sbarro. I was being trained for a management position and was just about to be promoted but the store closed down. It was a very fun job, I got to talk to a lot of people because it was in the middle of a mall. The people were great, the other workers were great. I spent my time making pizzas (fresh from scratch), cleaning, helping customers face to face and over the phone and I was being trained to become a manager.

From this job I was able to gain customer service skills and I learned the importance of communication in the workplace. The hardest part of the job was not receiving enough work hours, the most enjoyable was interacting with customers at the mall.

Cashier- Open (Former Employee), Greece NYFebruary 28, 2015
The management was awesome. They made sure you were soing everything you should be doing to make the teamwork flow easier. My co-workers were easy to work with and good people. The hardest part was trying not to burn myself on the oven when moving fast pace. The most enjoyable part was being around work loving energetic co-workers and having to attract customers from other places.

Great place to work, nice management, and fun atmosphere.
Cashier/Server (Former Employee), Palm Beach Gardens, FLFebruary 26, 2015
Pros: free meals during shifts and flexible scheduling
Cons: must work some holidays and black friday
I really enjoyed working for Sbarro. The atmosphere was awesome, I loved my coworkers, and the food is delicious! Black Fridays at any company are crazy but the people I worked with made it all the better and I couldn't have asked for a better team to work with. I would definitely recommend working for this company.

Working in NYC
Pizza Man (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 11, 2015
My day on this job was busy. Working in Times Square in a restaurant can be quite stressful. My experience with the management was not the best, very disrespectful and not well trained. Hopefully my future employers will give me the respect that I deserve. The hardest part on the job is keeping up with all the work that we have to do on the job.
