Fun, easy, great and friendly employees
Line Server (Former Employee), Green Bay, WIDecember 16, 2014
Pros: long breaks, half off meals and for our families and friends.
Cons: pay and hours
Typical day at work, I would have to go to the dessert area where I'm assigned. I would need to make desserts and cut cake for the customers. I'm also responsible for the salad bar and have to watch that also, basically I have to refill salads and dressings and the fruits. My managers are very fun to work with and they are easy-going people not very – more... strict. My co-workers are friendly people to get along with. I enjoy most is closing because it's easy. – less

lineserver (Current Employee), Beaverton, ORDecember 13, 2014
going in with a great mindset you get a lot done and are able to help everyone else if they need it. I learn everyday something new at work. weather its at my own station or any of the other employees stations.
Our management is very hard working, always running around on the floor checking on guests and also helping everyone at work as well.
all of – more... my coworkers are very fun and energetic to be around and I love working with them. they always get the job done fast and correctly.
the hardest part of my job is keeping up with the floors. no matter how hard and often you sweep and clean them someone is always dropping food on the floor.
the most enjoyable part of my job is making sure all our guests have a wonderful experience everytime they come in and always making the next time the best time. – less

Hometown Buffets
Food server (Former Employee), Stockton, CANovember 25, 2014
Pros: free food
Cons: low pay
this was my first job in Stockton it was something i wasn't really sure about.learning this job took sometime eventually i was a pro at it. Changing the food tray over steamed bath was a tricky thing. Once you start working here you know your cooks and employees it became more comfortable. This isn't a career, but it will keep you busy and motivated – more... to keep your assigned area clean and organized. – less

Great Place to learn
line cook and Opening Cook (Former Employee), Elk Grove, CANovember 20, 2014
Pros: great people and awesome food
Cons: unexpected rushes and the occasional bad customer
This was the first time I had ever held a cooks position at anything other than a fast food environment. They were very patient and kind with me as I crawled my way to the top of our employment ladder. I had a really great kitchen manager at the time who gave a really good tour and explanation of all things considered in my station. The work environment – more... was very uplifting as well. My coworkers were very kind and helpful when I needed it the most. The hardest part of the job for me was getting use to the pace of the restaurant and following every recipe to the "T". It didn't take me long but it was definitely a fun challenge to overcome. – less

No quality of life, with very little realistic expectations.
Get to work write prep list, place orders. Then prep and wash dishes for 12 hours.

Pros: discounted meals
Cons: little to no breaks
I loved my job with Buffets Inc. It got to be too much because the pay wasn't great and some days I washed dishes by myself. But other then that, this is a very well managed place. They make you feel comfortable at work and you will absolutely love your co-workers.

Enjoyable workplace with great employees
Service Assistant (Former Employee), Stockton, CAOctober 28, 2014
Pros: employees got discounts on the buffet
my typical day at work was making sure my guests were always taken care of. that was the most important goal of my day. what i learned at this workplace is that you have to stay calm while under pressure. the management there was great until i had my hours reduced. the co-workers i worked with were great. they were the reason why i loved to come in – more... for work everyday and also because i absolutely loved the job i was doing. the hardest part of the job was trying to keep up with all your guests when it got busy. i always did the best i could. the most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people that came in everyday. the reason why was because i love meeting new people. – less

Server/Team Leader (Former Employee), Dothan, ALOctober 24, 2014
Pros: doing something i love to do.
Cons: not working there anymore.
I would go in to work ,find out my section, start my day out. I have learned that being over a crew is hard work. My managers was ok sometime but was not understanding at time. With me being a leader and a regular worker, I can understand alot more. Most of my co-worker was nice and hard working and some were not. The hardest part of my job was dealing – more... with rude customer. Seeing my regulars eveyday was very enjoyable.If I could I would work there now. – less

Pros: discounted food when working, free drinks
Cons: horrible management, forced to work even when you are sick
This job was not very good.they treated a lot of employees horribly.I would be asked 10 minutes before my shift ended that i need to stay until closing time because of under staffing after i had worked earlier that day.I could never call in sick because they told me they would fire me i was forced to work even when i was very sick.
