Fun work environment, but hard work goes underappreciated
Server (Former Employee) –  Brookfield, WIAugust 16, 2017
Working as a server you can make really good cash. The environment is pretty laid-back and you definitely won't leave work hungry. End up working pretty late some nights.

Good hours and good money
Bartender/Server (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAAugust 14, 2017
For a student, the hours are great because they aren't open during the day and they close relatively early. Restaurant opens either at 4 or 5 pm and closes at 10 or 11pm depending on the day.

Good place to eat, terrible place to work
Server (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXAugust 13, 2017
Just overall a terrible place to work, it's either very slow and understaffed of very busy and understaffed and hectic. No one at this location likes to help it's all about themselves and it's so dirty!! I truly had to quit because of how dirty the employees are are how terrible the owners are, they will never fire you so it's packed with thieves and drug dealers and they know it. They just truly don't care. You get $2.13 an hour and maybe get 3-4 tables if you're lucky. Never more than 100 one night no matter how hard you work, you're the chef and the sever. It's a mess
Pros
Free salad
Cons
Low pay terrible employees poor ownership bad environment

Server/Tableside Food Preparation (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCAugust 12, 2017
The Melting Pot is a family environment that I enjoy and is such a plus. The owner takes very good care of his employees which brings the good from the bad. The only bad part of the job was sometimes having to come in so early (11am for certain events when you usually come in at 4) and still have to stay until close. However, management would provide us with breakfast and lunch/dinner.
Serving four tables at once is like serving 9 tables at a regular restaurant. An ability to multi-task, personalbility, and time manage is a must in order to do well in the restaurant. Going above and beyond to give a perfect night out it a huge plus.
Pros
Management takes care of you, decent clients
Cons
Hours can get to be long

BARTENDER (Former Employee) –  Framingham, MAAugust 2, 2017
Ownership of knowledge of menu was necessary. Delivering excellent service like in any other restaurant or company was a must in these four walls. People were amazed at the attention to service when they came in and recognized it when it was lacking. I had been working for the company off and on within a 10 year time frame. The job was very demanding on busy nights and you had to be great not good at multitasking to stay out of the weeds. At the end of the night after all your hard work it was fun making relationships but tough if you ever had to work a double.
Pros
The family environment
Cons
Kitchen Help

It's a Restaurant Job
Server Assistant/Busser (Current Employee) –  Maple Shade, 584 NJ-38July 21, 2017
You work in a restaurant. It's long hours on your feet, dealing with customers, fast-paced, tip wage, etc. It's a pricier place so you get less tables, but bigger bills.
Pros
50% For yourself and one other person
Cons
Long hours, not set time of being finished.
