Great place to work
Server/Carryout Specialist/Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TX17 January 2018
During my time there I was able to grow and develop myself with the help of the great management team. It is a great place to start or expand your career, they definitely take care of their own.

busy but fun
Stocker (Former Employee) –  Woodland Hills, CA12 January 2018
working here you'll meet people from all walks of life and learn a lot about the world from them. guest here are usually polite. management if sufficient but in my case a little stingy when it came to supplies but within reason lots of silverware are thrown out from the fast pace work, as a stocker you'll work in a team of two to move eating ware. a few tips and tricks will have to be learned but after a while they will become natural, hoilday season gets really hectic.
Pros
great people
Cons
holiday season is BUSY!

Front of House Staff (Former Employee) –  Costa Mesa, CA11 January 2018
fun group of people to work with, in an efficient, team player environment. Money comes and goes with changes in the season, but hours have been hard to come by for me and some of the people I've worked with

horrible work experience
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Naperville, IL9 January 2018
I would never recommend to anyone to work for this company as a ground level employee. They work you very hard for very little money and they do not seem to have any loyalty to their employees.
Pros
free shift meal if you work in the kitchen
Cons
everything

Runner/Busser (Former Employee) –  Wauwatosa, WI9 January 2018
I enjoyed the benefits of working part-time at Maggiano's, but I would never stay there long term. It pays well, but there are other jobs I'd rather have with more consistent schedules.
Pros
Discount on good italian, free bread, well paying
Cons
Unpredictable hours

Server (Former Employee) –  Cherry Hill, NJ5 January 2018
It's a fine place to work. Good people good managers shift meal (for doubles) decent benefits very good 401K. Negatives are nights weekends holidays repetitive corporate restaraunt etc. and certainly consistent OVER staffing (less money in everyone's pocket). BUT otherwise a great restaraunt and environment to work in.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Night weekends holidays overstaffing of servers

A great place to work for anyone looking for part time work.
Banquet Server (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VA3 January 2018
Maggiano's Little Italy is a good place to work and earn money for anyone looking for part time work, especially students. Maggiano's stays consistently pretty busy year-round giving employees an opportunity to obtain their hours.

Fast pace great money lack of job security
Server (Current Employee) –  Denver, CO30 December 2017
A manager once told his employee "I don't have to give you a reason to fire you" and that he did not for a few of his employees this year. Managers play favorites and can be either super nice and fun or threatening , but If you can deal with a lack of job security, you can make some serious cash at this restaurant. I make anywhere from 100-200 dollars per night shift, no matter if it's a weekend or week day. Employees are also fun to work with and team play is also really good at this location. Really the only downside is the absolute lack of job security.
Pros
Money, food discounts, flexible schedules
Cons
Lack of job security, stressfull

It's a good place to work for students, young professionals.
Banquet Bartender (Former Employee) –  Durham, NC4 December 2017
There are some improvements to be made before it becomes a fun place to work. The selections of management should be thorough before just hiring someone that doesn't know what he/she is doing.
Pros
Friendships
Cons
No breaks

more of a miss
Server (Former Employee) –  Springfield, VA29 November 2017
you can make money in this place but the restaurant is unorganized. the host do not know how to seat the dining room so good luck getting a table. the servers are cut throat and are so greedy and money hungry they forget what it feels like to be a warm blooded human being.

Busboy/Server (Former Employee) –  Skokie, IL21 November 2017
Working at Maggiano's was very different compared to my other jobs. It was definitely a faster pace. I had to perform very well, and never make a mess in public, while people are eating.

Server/Waiter (Former Employee) –  Centennial, CO15 November 2017
The job was very challenging and quite informative. The servers had to know not only the menu, but also had to know how to sell everything from add ons to secret shopper visits. Had to carry heavy dishes and had to box a lot of food. Teammate were great and overall it was a great experience.

Restaurant Server (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GA7 November 2017
What a great place to work. The portions would easily fill the stomach of a large sumo wrestler. The wine is delicious and the water is pure and crystal clear.
