Looking forward to go and be at work. Everyone helped each other out, in order to run the restaurant swiftly. Thursday Nights were our Family Nights and we always had a house full. Our Managers were fair, empathetic and friendly with the employees.

Lineserver/Busser/Dishwasher (Former Employee), Westland, MIJuly 19, 2015
One the franchise level, management and personnel were professional and competent. But the parent company filed bankruptcy in 2012 so I suppose that competency didn't reach the top.

Meat Cutter (Former Employee), Hiram, GAJuly 16, 2015
Pros: $4.00 lunch
Cons: only part time
I was trained well then was able to adapt the training to make the job easier. I learned how to cut meat properly and to maintain a proper meat cooler. All my co-workers worked very well as a team. I loved most about the job that I didn't have someone watching over my shoulder all the time. I was expected to do my job to the best I can and went beound that.

Waitress (Former Employee), Janesville, WIJune 27, 2015
Taking care of customers and providing great customer service was the top resposibility. I learned to mulit-task, that you can have fun at work but still do your job, and that there are so many different kinds of people. The managment was ok, but my co-workers were great. The hardest part of the job was an irate customer or not being able to give the customer what they were looking for. My favorite part of the job was interacting with all the guests and getting to know the regular customers as more than just customers. Knowing about their jobs, families, even what they were going through really made them feel like a work family.

Line Server (Former Employee), Wichita, KSJune 22, 2015
Pros: co workers, work place, job advancement, health benefits
Cons: turn overs in management, lay offs
Hometown Buffet is family oriented. The supervisors were understanding and enjoyed interacting with all of the coworkers. Sometimes keeping up with the customers and the amount of food needed to be pushed out sometimes was difficult. I learned no matter how swamped you feel or how impossible something may seem if you just keep at it eventually it will be accomplished.

Pros: part time
Cons: on your feet all day
great place to work for youth going to school, perfect stepping stone for young employees to learn responsibility and multi-task and take orders from management. busy buffet keeps everyone busy and makes time fly and before you know it your shift is over.

DISHWASHER (Former Employee), La Habra, CAJune 13, 2015
Pros: good pay, overtime, great crew, employee of the month incentive
Cons: drenched with water and sweat at the end of the day
I started washing dishes and that became easy after a few weeks.The staff was great always smiles all around.I learned nothing new as I had done this before at another restaurant before it brunt down shortly after I started working.Management was great until one came back from vacation when I got hired.That guy didn't like me cause i spoke English and Spanish fluently,but i was also getting recognition – more... to become management and that made him see me as a threat cause his English was horrible and he mostly spoke Spanish.Hardest part of the job was itself washing dishes,although we had a machine that took in 6 "racks" at a time making it easy the steam from all the hot water would make you sweat so much you needed to hydrate almost every hour.Most enjoyable part of the job was the recognition you got for working hard and compliments from customers when I did meat carving .The few months i was there i was employee of the month twice. – less
