    I worked at The Village Inn of Wayne full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Meeting new people everyday and being in an upbeat, happy environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes you'll have to leave earlier than scheduled, if business is slower. Sometimes you'll have to work past work schedule.

    Pros

    Good food. Paycheck wasn't all that but you can't expect much from a job like this.

    Cons

    Same with every other workplace. They have their share of flaws, bad managers, good managers and lazy workers. Nothing new.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to really say. You give people jobs and I suppose they should be thankful for that. But treat your employees and customers with real genuine respect.

    Pros

    Wonderful customers. They are all so nice even when they have a complaint

    Cons

    The management is terrible! The assistant manager seems to always be in a bad mood and the general manager is super nice but can't figure out how to let the employees do their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the same page it would make the work experience for your employees so much better.

    I have been working at The Village Inn of Wayne part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I like the fact that they serve decent food at a somewhat affordable prices. Promotions are always talked about as a career path. Encouraged to be ridiculously fast paced even when there is no need to be. The egg dishes were good.

    Cons

    This place serves all preprepared food. No skill or basic culinary knowledge needed. Speed is always thought of as an asset, with no regard to the quality of the product. It seems everyone has had a drug problem, or legal troubles. This a place where "turn and burn" was invented. Everything is prepared with little thought of quality. I've heard that in the past they had contests to see who was fastest. Food is precooked and finished on a griddle. Eggs are the only product that is made fresh on the premises. Their famous pies are frozen then decorated with whipped cream making them look pretty. Still you have to question the quality of a frozen pie made off premises. No skill needed. If you are passionate for the culinary arts this is not your place at all. Speed over quality. That really should be the company motto.

    Advice to Management

    Hours are hard to come by, and you usually are sent home early. Benefits are available to employees that work over 30 hours. No medical unless you choose to use Obama Care. I did not know of a single employee that really enjoyed their job. All of the reasons to stay are based on whether you can fit it in with a second job. After all you can't live on what they pay you.

    I worked at The Village Inn of Wayne part-time (Less than a 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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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