    I have been working at The Common Man Family of Restaurants


    The money is great. I make more working part-time at the Diner than I would any entry-level job out of college.

    Free food every shift.

    Dress code is simple and laid-back.

    Employee appreciation day once a year.


    Very stressful due to the extremely fast turn-time of the tables.

    "Secret shoppers" anonymously come in to rate your service to make sure you follow the "20 steps of Common Man service." If you score low on this, your job is in jeopardy. This is ridiculous, especially in the summer time when we serve over 1,000 people every day.

    Upper management very strict and sucks the fun out of the company.

    Low employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up on the secret shopper checklist. They make everyone stress out.

    Offer more employee incentives.

    Give more positive feedback, morale is low at the Diner.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at The Common Man Family of Restaurants in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Basically I just applied on their website and received an e-mail from the general manager within a week. I went in for the interview and was asked to explain my work experience and my future career goals. The manager didn't really ask me any hard questions and I was hired on the spot. The interview lasted about 20 minutes which seemed really short to me, especially since I was hired. The manager seemed really nice at first, but after I had been with the company for 2 weeks, everything changed.
