Ok starting pay, poor management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Damon's part-time

ProsThe employees are like a family
The pay is good for starting kitchen wages

ConsNo room for advancement or wage increases
Poorly managed at both middle and upper levels
100% profit driven and no regard for employee needs

Advice to Senior ManagementGet to know your staff and what they are involved in before you schedule them for multiple 10-12 hour days in a row

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Unpleasant working environment

Hostess (Former Employee)
Clarks Summit, PA

I worked at Damon's part-time for less than a year

ProsFast paced working environment so you definitely won't be bored. Discounted food during shift hours and time to sit down and eat it.

ConsRestaurant jobs come with their own set of headaches but working at Damon's was a big one. There is a constant influx of new staff because people are unable to stay for a prolonged period of time. At the time I was there the management was extremely disrespectful to some members of their staff.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Going downhill fast

Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Damon's

ProsIts a job in this economy. Long term employees are great. They really care about the guest and take pride in doing a good job

ConsBankruptcy has made it impossible to do our jobs the way they should be done. We can't order smallwares, we routinely receive calls from utility companies about disconnections for non payment. We are never given answers.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork IN a restaurant for a week. Get out of your office and walk a mile in our shoes.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
