Server/Food-Runner (Former Employee) – Duarte, CA – July 2, 2016
On a busy day there is always something to do and little to no down time. Ability to earn great tips on the weekend. Co-workers are fun and helpful. Work environment feels like that of a family and managers are there to assist when needed.

SERVER/ BUSSER (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – June 23, 2016
For a few years i had the opportunity to work alongside an excellent cast of coworkers. Some have become personal friends of mine and i still keep in touch with many others. Overall, they work as a unit, always on the same page!
Good place to make money if you are willing to work hard
Server/Bartender (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – May 30, 2016
The tools they provide on how to give the customers a great experience are sufficient but only providing one week of training does not allow the new server the time to hone their skills. Once you have the hang of it though, you can make decent money in tips.
busy work load, opportunity to advance
On your feet for long periods of time and lots of walking
Lead Host/Trainer/Secretary/Server (Former Employee) – Newport Beach, CA – April 20, 2016
Hosting was my first paying job and I absolutely loved it. I was hired at 17 and working in such a fast paced environment with hard working adults helped me grow as a person and opened my eyes to the real world. Management was amazing; I was promoted multiple times in a short amount of time and constantly acknowledged for my leadership/teamwork and positive attitude. I have nothing negative to say about working at The Old Spaghetti Factory. I'm extremely grateful that I had the opportunity to work for such a great company.
Host and Busser (Current Employee) – Tanasbourne, OR – April 14, 2016
The staff is easy to get along with and they keep things upbeat and positive. Everyone is willing to give a hand to help someone out. The management team can always be contacted and are willing to listen and help where they can.
Server/ Lead Server (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – April 12, 2016
You are always given the chance to learn and grow with the company. They like to promote from within. Management is always great and have been there for years and makes for a stable place to work. co-workers always get along and spend time outside of work with each other as well. Sometimes you can get stretched a little thin during your shift but and that can be tough. The best part was all the people I would see everyday and the people that I would get to work with.
1/2 off meals, good money, great staff and always like going to work
Department Manager (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – March 28, 2016
Good company that has great family values. The major issue with Spaghetti Factory is the foresight and planning is disorganized. Bonuses program is heavily weighted on guest service and cost controls but the standards are extremely hard if not impossible to achieve. Potential to move up is endless however the compensation is below industry standard.
Cook (Current Employee) – Fresno, CA – March 5, 2016
The company itself is a good start for anyone who wants a job. The location I work for, the management team can be better. Pay is not so great; kitchen positions are tiring and the pay-rate for a kitchen position is just not accommodating for the amount of work and BS you go through. Besides a few good coworkers, most of the coworkers are toxic, shady, and immature. You got to babysit them and instruct them what to do.
Server (Current Employee) – Rancho Cordova, CA – February 9, 2016
I have never worked for a large restaurant so that is fun and a lot of the employees are cool to work with since there are so many people you get a variety. Our new management has been unproductive, i am triple sat tables by my GM!!!!!! Then when we are frantically behind the managers will criticize the smallest most unimportant things when big issues need to be addressed. You cannot say a cuss word or drink a soda without being yelled at. There are no more double shifts as they keep hiring many new employees and lowering all of our hours. We even had a veteran of 10 years quit because their rent couldn't be paid and management didn't do a thing to help when it was expressed. The sections are horribly designed and since you are triple sat all night you are just behind and more stressed than normal. Overall this place makes me feel inferior when I know I am a good server with my years of experience. When will companies learn that happy employees equal a happy restaurant.
fun to work with a lot of people
Bad management, poorly designed sections, not enough hours or shifts
Crew Leader (Former Employee) – Clackamas, OR – January 27, 2016
This job was my second, practically my first full time job. At this place I learned that working as team member is a lot more fun. There was busy days but we all managed to go through them working always as a team and making sure everything was going well.
Host/ To-go Host (Former Employee) – Tukwila, WA – December 29, 2015
Working at OSF had good and bad experiences. Most of my co-workers were awesome people who worked hard when needed to, but also very down to earth behind the scenes. However throughout my tenure management had went from great to decent. I easily recognized this by the changes in attitude of my co-workers and the disappearance of a few of them. All in all i'd say OSF was a good learning step because of the positive and negative experiences i had gain.
