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....

    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.
