Pros

Managers are former employees so they have no problems helping and doing dirty work.
High sale totals possible.
Let their employees have input, doesn't push things to sell.

Cons

Does not care to follow the FIFO system of First In First Out, resulting in openers turning into closers frequently.
Kind of scattered on where to take the brand.

    Pros

    If you enjoy cheese, you are in the right place.

    Cons

    The "core values" mantra is only that. There was a severe lack of respect amongst staff members and the ownership group. Little consistency in policy enforcements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach.

    I worked at The Melting Pot part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great working hours.
    Great pay for ease of work.
    Management able to work with you.
    Awesome discounts when you go in to enjoy their food.
    Great clientele, at times.

    Cons

    High work pace environment.
    If you are not good with people and want to server them you will hate your job.
    The restaurant industry in general is full of complaints and learning to deal with them will make you money or lose you money, it can get hard when you are accountable for little you can actually control.
