The job itself was simple but the staff needed training and continuitity
Shift Supervisor: (Former Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FL – September 9, 2014
Pros: the meals were free and the atmosphere was pleasant
Cons: the lack of training
I would have enjoyed my job there is the upper management had consistency with the procedures and the daily running of the store. I learned that it is difficult if you are the only member of the leadership team who is trying to enforce or uphold certain standards that the job becomes taxing and difficult. The staff in the kitchen was there for many – more... years and were never updated on the new standards from the Board of Health. Therefor there was resentment when correcting things that needed to be updated to the decade by myself. they also were not held accountable for any mishandling of products , and the very relaxed way in which they prepared the items for the public. I enjoyed the contact with the customer and especially with the regular and the locals. – less
Great New management but no room for advancement, because they declared bankruptcy
General Manager (Current Employee), Delaware – May 22, 2014
Cons: health benefits/ no bonuses
Learned the new Syrus system which is there database for financials. The job is really a walk in the park if you you are used to a hands on environment. The management staff is tenured and very welcoming, especially since I was the only female general manager in the company,

Cashier (Former Employee), Burlington, WA – May 10, 2014
Pros: free lunches
My day was cleaning, dish pit, stocking, taking orders, prep work, answering questions. I learned what it was like to work in a family like setting. Management was great worked with me the whole time on anything I needed help on. Co- workers were fun to work with knew what they were doing and hard workers. The hardest part of the job working the dish – more... pit. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the customers. – less
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee), Hickory, NC – May 2, 2014
Pros: free lunch, flexible schedule
Cons: no breaks, bad healthcare
A typical day at Sbarro was all about spacing things out so you could get it all done in one day and not have to rush before you have to go home. The job was very simple, but it had to be on point every time. The food was the hardest to make because you had to memorize the recipes, but once you got the hang of it, It was no big deal. Managing shifts – more... is different everywhere, but at Sbarro it was the generic managing labor, cash control, making sure everyone's happy and making sure the food is perfect. I had extra duties to take on as well because my General Manager always had emergencies or sicknesses to deal with so I had a lot of responsibility. It was a small store, in the food court of a mall, but running the store with just you and the Assistant Manger 80% of the time is hard work. I loved that job, as stressful as it could be at times, I was good at what I did and I knew what I was doing. The people that I worked with were my favorite part of my job, they respected me, but we could still make work fun and enjoyable and still get everything done correctly and in a timely manner. – less
Cashier (Former Employee), Orlando, FL – April 27, 2014
Pros: weekly pay
Always a fast pace environment, learned how to communicate tremendously well with others. Most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with customers. Recall the management to be unprofessional leading to my decision of leaving the work place. Co- workers were always friendly as well as optimistic.
Pizza Server/Cashier (Former Employee), West Des Moines, IA – April 20, 2014
A typical day involved washing hands & getting into the grind of greeting people as they passed along & try to sell the product or combination of pizza, breadsticks, salad, spaghetti, cake, or soft drink.
Server/Cashier (Former Employee), Santa Ana, CA – April 19, 2014
Great customers and co workers. During the weekday the mall was slow so we would just make sure everything looked presentable to customers. During the weekend the mall was busy and had to take care of more then one customer at a time.
