    Pros

    There are few late nights.

    Cons

    The buffet industry is slowly dying. Raw food costs are too high to profitably run an all-you-can eat buffet.
    Management from A D on up to the top are so scared of losing their jobs that they will not support store management on important issues.
    There is an active campaign to reduce overall salary compensation.
    There is no "inclusion." Everything comes from the top down.
    Food quality on food bars has diminished over the years due to the purchase of the cheapest product available.
    Continued reduction of the few benefits the employees have.
    Do you really want to work for a company that has gone into bankruptcy twice while the CEO gets huge bonuses for "guiding" the company through bankruptcy even though he "guided" the company INTO bankruptcy.
    Store managers, in dozens and dozens of locations run a manager or two short and there is no focused effort to fill those positions when each management position not
    filled saves the company fifty grand or so in salary and benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would if they would listen. Listening stopped a decade ago. No one above store level cares. They pretend to, but they don't.

    Pros

    its a paycheck not much more for most of the operational staff.

    Cons

    vision for change has to start from the top not in operational management. You have to make a difference (earn it) daily or you will become extinct very soon

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get with the program with this reorganization or be another lost corporation

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
