Cook 1 (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – September 25, 2018
I enjoyed working at village inn. i learned alot about how a restuarant operates and focused primarily on being a skilled cook. I liked the diversity of working and meeting all different kinds of people. I loved the fact that my shifts went by very fast, it literally felt as though i was only there 15 minutes instead of a 6 to 8 hour shift.
Dish Washer/CSR (Former Employee) – Ozark, MO – September 23, 2018
I worked for the Greene Franchise, and they decided to screw everything up and completely switched the management teams of two different stores, destroying the sales at the store that I worked at. It is very fast paced and can be very stressful.
Waitress (Former Employee) – Clinton, IA – September 23, 2018
Like most restaurant jobs you will have some drama with the younger staff. However, all in all, it is a positive place to work. Management does a good job in keeping everyone in line. All staff helps everyone out.
General Manager (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – September 13, 2018
Seems that a lot of times decisions are made without the input of infield operators which in turn causes lag times and service. Village Inn is very concerned about freshness and quality of their products the reward systems while somewhere in place or not followed to the T and motivation is some type of lacking
Busser (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – September 4, 2018
The hours i was given when i was hired were horrendous. i would go in at 11-12pm and leave at about 4:30am. This caused me to start sleeping through the day and not be able to do much. Also, the management doesnt really check to make sure every server tips out the bussers. Ive seen servers walk out thinking they were taking a smoke break and never come back. You have to stay on top of it or they'll just walk out.

Server (Current Employee) – Slc – September 2, 2018
Use to be so busy you wouldn't make less than $100 now u have to fight for tables and are lucky to make $40 . Got to the point they would send the servers home and keep the managers and managers would stay and serve the tables and make the tips
Housekeeper/Laundry (Former Employee) – Leavenworth, WA – September 2, 2018
All of my co-workers were very nice and helped me figure out how to do what i needed to do in a time efficient way, the rooms were very clean and the area was very beautiful. It was like my home away from home.
Fast paced environment, but helps if you learn quickly
Hostess/Cashier (Former Employee) – Centennial, CO – August 27, 2018
Village Inn is an amazing first job. I personally loved the fast-paced environment that keeps you on your feet most of the times. Just be careful with the few late night stragglers who come in right at closing. I would definitely recommend this for an in-between job, but not as a full-time job due to the minimum wages .
