I worked at The Melting Pot part-time for more than 3 years

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.

    Former Employee - Host in Reston, VA

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

    Pros

    The pay was good for a hostess job. I got to become at hostess at just 17 which was cool. The servers were nice.

    Cons

    The hours were terrible. On some days I was scheduled they'd let me go home 5 mins after getting to the place! That got really aggravating. Also, being "on call" can sometimes suck because you cant really make plans. The management was nice but you could tell they favored people. I wasn't properly trained and the management expected me to know things I was never told about which is a flaw on their part. I only worked for like a month because I got tired of the mistreatment. And I always went home smelling like cheese which stays in your clothes and hair forever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't openly favor your employees, treat everyone fairly, and practice what you preach.

    I worked at The Melting Pot full-time

    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.
