    Tips are not the greatest, lots of times people don't tip @ buffets.

    I worked at Golden Corral part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are so few .

    Cons

    Cheat out of pay, backstabbing managememt, underfunded, broken down equipment, horrible pay, disrespect daily

    Advice to Management

    Sooner or later you wll run out of people willing to work for you. Your prices are to high and people want the old corral back where you can spend 25.00 for 2 people to eat. Cut out the extras and the extravigance. The people you feed will eat anything you put in front of them. Invest more in your store operations and employees or you will be another Ryans in 5 years
