Shift Supervisor/Line Cook (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – January 3, 2019
The best part of the day is prepping time. The team is fun and gets along well. The environment is fast-paced, but it helps the day go by fast. I would highly recommend working at DiBella's if you are looking to work in food service. Their schedules are flexible, so it would make a great job for a student or part-time worker.
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – July 16, 2019
When I interviewed to DiBella’s I stressed I needed full time hours because they only offered me minimum wage and that just wasn’t livable. They bumped me up 50 cents but still only schedule me part time while paying me in pennies basically. I work SO hard during the lunch rush (which is the only time I’m needed) only to get paid $20 overall for my effort. At my location, all the managers and most of the staff are related so nepotism prevents anyone else from getting paid fairly or advancing. I applied for 1 position and was thrown into another because they thought they had enough people for the position I applied for....which they neglected to mention AFTER I had already been hired. I genuinely need my job so I’ll stick it out for as long as possible but I don’t foresee myself staying at this location. Unfortunately I’ve had to ask other stores if they needed any extra coverage because mine only schedules me for the rush. Also learned I’m the lowest paid employee. They started everyone off literally $4 more than me. You’re not supposed to talk about salaries with coworkers because management doesn’t want people to find out they’re not being paid fairly. I have 5+ years of restaurant experience and they started me .50 cents above minimum wage. They promised me full time hours and overtime but haven’t followed through. Hopefully it’s just my location that sucks because as soon as the restaurant closer to my house starts hiring I’m going to try to get in there. Also I don’t get free lunch so I’m really jealous of anyone who says their store provides them with a free lunch. Imore... faked my location so my store wouldn’t see this.less
