    Pros

    Excellent company to work for. The corporate office gives franchisors the keys needed for marketing success. Communication with the home office is also very easy.

    Cons

    Working a freelance marketing position always has a number of cons. Compensation and benefits can vary between the locations that you work for. Some stores may be able to handle a flat rate of pay where other locations are working under a stricter budget.

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

    Pros

    The Melting Pot was a different kind of dining experience where you could really have the time to build relationships with the customers as well as your fellow team members. The place started as a destination spot and grew to something much more.

    Cons

    Long hours and high turnover with the wait staff was the only real con because it's hard to find good help and experience in the food service industry.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the turnover of staff and that will translate to the consistency of the servie and overall dining experience.
