    I worked at BUCA full-time

    Pros

    Not much to share as far as positives go.

    Cons

    Others may have had better experiences as a Paisano, but mine was overly challenging. I went and entire year without a chef or staff manager, this led to very long hours and an unbearable work load. The issue I had was that my superiors' workload was incredible as well and no real focus or effort was adequate to lighten my burden. Eventually I became burned out and sought employment elsewhere. A positive note is that since my departure they have restructured their upper management allowing for more attention to stores. Also open 365 a year, very difficult around the holidays, if you have children.
