    I worked at Village Inn

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Really felt like a contributing member of the team. Was treated as an equal by superiors.

    Cons

    Long hours, staffing issues made it so I spent a good portion of my time doing hourly employees responsibilities. Tiring.

  2.  

    This store has had some growing pains lately, however it does seem to be under new audit for future potential stability.

    I worked at Village Inn part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very customer oriented, Great Pie's, most server's truely care about customer dining experience.

    Cons

    Too much gossiping, too much lack of concern for co-workers well being, and not enough hand washing after a cigarette breaks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gossip is contagious, if you are part of the solution, then you are not the initial problem. Because if you fight for the better good of your employees, then they will willing and able to fulfill any and all company policies, values, and projected future production goals.

    Low pay rate and few hours

    I worked at Village Inn part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get a discount for the restaraunt.

    Cons

    Paid minimum wage and I was literally given 2 hours a week. Supervisor was unnecessarily strict.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so critical of your employees. There's a fine line between effective leadership and being drunk with power.

    I worked at Village Inn part-time

    Pros

    Meeting new people, making new friends, free pie whenever, sometimes I would get to take home full pies for free.

    Cons

    Very fast paced servers get mad if you have to seat them twice, customers who are mean, bosses don't give you a break. My bosses would sometimes make me work my whole shift then make me take my break when my shift was over...pretty sure that is illegal.
