    I worked at Eat'n Park part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to meet new people and you work get hours every week. Some stores aren't open 24 hours a day so no over night shifts

    Cons

    Manager favoritism. Harassment. As a new employee I was given the assessment and failed. I failed because they never gave me the book of information but still expected me know everything. Advertised we would get benefits. Nope not one beside a half price meal during breaks

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally. Actually train the new employees. Don't expect perfection when you don't teach it.

    Pros

    I have worked in the food service industry for over 12 years. I have done everything from: cooking, dish washing, serving, bar tending, host, prep, supervise, etc. You name it I've done it. Eat N Park is great with working with you. IF you need off or give them your availability, they usually do an amazing job at making sure your schedule is near perfect. As for the job, it's rough. You'll do a lot of running and a lot of work for little pay. Since they don't server alcohol, check averages are much lower, so salaries are lower. If you have a strong staff and a supportive management team, you'll enjoy it much more.

    Cons

    Lots of running Compensation low Management communication sometimes lacking

    I worked at Eat'n Park part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Safe and friendly work environment. Restaurants were always kept very clean and proper food handling was always followed. Company has positive civic service reputation.

    Cons

    Pay rates weren't competitive and while chasing better payroll efficiency, hours were often cut due to slow business. Some locations are in dire need of renovation and updating dining rooms.

    Advice to Management

    Find some costs to cut to pay employees better where turnover rates are high, will reduce training costs and develop employee loyalty.


  11. Company culture is unique and very much like family.
