    I worked at Old Country Buffet part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    temporary job, management was nice enough They were understanding about being a student and working with your schedule. Some co-workers were in the same boat as me and worked well together.

    Cons

    Most of the staff were dead beats, the harassment and crude behavior was disgusting. As a young girl I wouldn't have recommended working there. Staff were also quite rude and customers were ungrateful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    crack down on employee harassment, especially the sexual comments
