    Former Employee - Hospitality Manager in Greenville, SC

    I worked at Buffets Holdings full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There work load is divided. The atmoshere is targeted to hapy and its dining rooms are for familys.
    Decent pay, and benifits with PTO.

    Cons

    They instruct you to push back on issues that should be followed by management, but if you tell anyone above, outside your management then you are considered a whitsle blower and you will be black balled.
    No store under any one is ever perfect but this one has some Food saftey issues and Integrity issues. If you see it, just dont tell it, ot try to fix it or you will be black balled. Management turn over rate for Greenville SC is 48%

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont loose sight of the Guest and their saftey on the food issues. You get some one sick everyone under you could be with out a job. Dont loose your concious....
