Long work weeks with no advancement, training or compensation. Took 10 years to receive a pay raise of 2k.
Restaurant Manager (Current Employee) – Oviedo, FL – August 22, 2018
They have a good mission statement in their principles and beliefs. Unfortunately its all for show. They say their most valuable asset is their people, but after 17 years of service I can tell you I don't feel valued nor have I ever. Carrabbas takes more than it gives.
They are headed in the wrong direction.
down or flat in sales, closing/not opening restaurants. In my experience they aren't good about career advancement or pay increases from within. My last raise was in 2008. They seem to value outsiders more than the people they have.
They have a good training program its just very poorly executed due to understaffed restaurants. Food quality is on the decline.
Good news is, if you can tolerate the work weeks and underwhelming pay, your job is very secure. Very few people ever get fired for under performing. They have a hard time staffing or the management position, specifically kitchen manager.
$100 comp card to carrabbas and affliate restaurants after 17 years accumulated 4 weeks of PTO
health care isnt good, No cost of living pay increases in 10 years, Limited opportunity for advancements
