Food prep for all stations (Former Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – November 28, 2017
It was an alright place to work. Lots of variety in the work which was great. I learned how to bake many different dessert items and prepare all types of food. The longer I worked there, the more stations I learned how to manage.
Training to be Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Clackamas, OR – December 10, 2017
Low pay, inconsistent breaks, mean and unprofessional general manager. Called in on my days off, managers sit in office and don't help when needed. Horrible place! Restaurant was shut down without notice to staff!

Server/Cashier (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – November 19, 2017
Hometown Buffet was a fun environment. A typical day consisted of everyone working together to assist customers. Management was fun and tried to make sure everyone was happy. There were not very many options for advancement which made this job temporary for many people.
I enjoyed working for hometown buffet got to meet so many different people, never a boring moment, always kept myself doing or finding something to do

Cashier (Former Employee) – Kennewick, WA – November 4, 2017
A typical day at work as a Cashier is busy, fun, friendly and requires good multi-tasking. I typically took care of customers as they came to the register, called to confirm future restaurant reservations, cleaned and helped my co-workers with keeping our side of the restaurant clean and presentable. I learned how to be a good employee, this is a great first time employer and they employ anyone, no matter their background. I learned how to multi-task much better and have learned how to operate restaurant computer systems, deal with cash and I also learned the value of consistent hard-work and staying ahead of my tasks. The management is very kind and helpful and flexible with their employees. The workplace culture is very familial and busy. All employees and managers work hard when they're on shift. The hardest part of the job is the learning curve and computer system. If this is your first job, it might take you a little while to feel like you are getting very good at your job and the computer system can be a bit difficult to manage. However, you'll learn the value of asking for help and being able to problem-solve in work situations. The most enjoyable part of the job is definitely the people that I worked with, I enjoyed being around them, talking to them and became fast friends. The people there are very good people and come from all kinds of different backgrounds, which makes getting to know them even more valuable. Co-workers, managers and customers are what make the restaurant a lovable place to work.

I would not recommend anyone to work here well not at the one im at anyway. You get paid nothing, you dont get that many hours, and they will sit there and yell at you for dumb stuff that you have no control over.
Food Court Line Server/ Team Member (Current Employee) – Eau Claire, WI – September 22, 2017
It's a good place to work at if you find food interesting, really fun co workers. There's also a lot to learn, taking me for example i couldn't flip omelets, but working at Old Country Buffet taught me how.
