Associate Manager (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – July 11, 2018
I learned how to train others while still being trained and making sure my work was done on time. The hardest part of the job was not being able to give veterans discounts or military members discounts.
The upper management besides two GMs actually knows what they are doing one was still working with a messed up knee she suffered on the job because she had no support from her assistant GM who would not pick at every thing she did , the other GM knew what to do and had a fully functional and capable staff
Hardly any breaks upper management lack of skills and communication
Cashier (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – July 1, 2018
It was a great job when I work there. The co-workers that I worked with were fun and great to work with. But I had to leave because it was getting in the way of my school and got the time. Overall it was a great job.

I was shoved into work without training. I constantly had to ask coworkers for help learning everything. I had a trainer who never had the same shift as me and she quit a week after I started. A lot of my coworkers sat in the bathroom to get out of work which made it a lot more stressful for the rest of us. Management was awful and never helped. Managers never worked together so I would get conflicting tasks. They would also talk bad about one another behind their back. I quit after a month.
No one is motivated, and management never picked up the slack.

If you are a truly ambitious and thoughtful employee who just wants to improve the state of their working place look somewhere else. When I worked here I made employee of the month, and won many medals for premium customer service.
When the time came to pick a new closing manager since the previous one left, I was picked over by someone who had little experience and no credibility. Over time the store became filled with newer managers who believed they shouldn't do their job because their 'inferiors' were to do everything.
Leaders are supposed to work with their team, not against or without them.
Can make own food, occasional free drink
No advancement, and difficult to get rid of bad management
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Ankeny, IA – June 12, 2018
It was stressful but it paid well with the hours I was putting in. If you like fast paced places it would be a good job for you. But a lot of workers quit while on the job so it did not run very smoothly.
Associate (Current Employee) – Bellbrook, OH – June 4, 2018
Fazolis is one of the best work environments I have experienced.It can go by quick especially if we are busy. I have learned new customer service techniques. The hardest part of the job is dealing with rude people, but I have to say I handle it very well. The most enjoyable is definitely the food and the great coworkers.
If you were a good employee they took advantage of you and they underpaid you. The work environment was very toxic. Everyone tried to undermine and sabotage each other. The management staff was awful. There was no communication or cooperation. The hardest part of the job was the people and the environment. The job itself was actually quite easy and the payoff of the bonds you make with customers was easily the most enjoyable part of the job.
