My experience at Golden Corral was not a very pleasant one and there were a multitude of reasons as to why. For starters, the management was poor. They lacked consideration for the employees in every way possible. These instances included but are not limited to blatantly ignoring employees when they asked questions that they didn't know the answer to, mocking the Spanish speaking employees, and dismissing any opinions that the employees gave. Secondly, the cleanliness of the restaurant was never well-maintained. Dishes were constantly dirty, the carpet floors always had dried-up food and liquids on them, and there were even cockroaches on the dining tables and in the boxes containing coffee grinds, to which management did nothing about. The staff was not friendly towards one another, teamwork was seen as a competition, and my fellow servers were never willing to do their part of the job. I would not recommend working at Golden Corral to anyone, it was a very unpleasant experience.
not to bad of a place to work for but then you can't mix family with business so that makes a big issue especially when it comes to working on holidays and certain shifts
I enjoy working for Golden Corral. Although I work for the GC in Pomona California, I believe the experience would be the same. The managerial staff is understanding and open to suggestions. They are courteous when asking to perform different tasks. They even say thank you after the task is completed. Being an older worker, working with younger employees there is no discrimination. Pleased with this company. I think they could pay more.
It was ok. I worked there for 10 years. I loved my customers and most of my co-workers, but the management has serious issues with favoritism. Many times this got in the way with many good employees and made them quit. It was a job and it did pay the bills, however and I appreciated the time I spent there!
I like that this company is College oriented. They really work with my school schedule, and they are very understanding of the busy college student life.
Getting along with everyone, more benefits, and paid vacation. I'm pretty sure if anyone would get the job with them they will like it as well and get along with everyone to.
I have been at the one in Conway, AR for a little over a month and there is so much drama. The servers curse at each other, the manager stays on his phone while guests are trying to talk to him, it is very dirty, the kitchen and the front area with the cups are is molded
The Director of operations is terrible. The manager suck. The work schedule suck. Crew don't come to work. Nothing runs correct .
I have thouroughly enjoyed working for this company. I worked for a local franchise that was run well, and had very happy customers. Management was fair, and pay was sufficient. There were many opportunities to work your way up the ladder.
It's mostly finding things to do as a waiter, and taking care of the guests as well. Its sometimes very grueling and other days it feels okay.
My experience at Golden Corral has been wonderful. Being in constant contact with clients is the best part of this job. I would like to improve promotions and growth opportunities at work.
I like most being around people. I love the fast paced eviroment makes time go by faster. The different buffet's are a big hit with the customers. Employee's are really easy to get along with. I enjoy working a set schedule. I enjoy cashering during the day and serving at night. It helps evening the pay out for me and my family. Ive worked at Golden corral before and I have to say the company has got rid of some great managers. Don't know what the reason was but that has nothing to do with me.
I have worked for this corporation for 3 years now and I am one of the employees that has been here since the restaurants opening day. I enjoy going in to work because of all my coworkers and the customers I interact with on a daily basis. One thing I would change would have to be the communication between management and employee's is not the best they can have a better form of communication. Other than that I have enjoyed working at golden corral because I have been a full time student since I started working here and they have been very flexible with my school schedule if it were not for management understanding school comes first I would not be able to work. so I appreciate this corporation for working with my school schedule.
I love working for this company. My coworkers are great, the customers are great, the only thing I consider faulty is the management. I feel they could really try harder with their employees and also with their customers. If they were more concerned with customer satisfaction than money we would have more returning customers and customers that are actually happy to be there. That also applies to their employees. There will always be something at one job or another you are bound to not like, I didn't like certain things about my boss at my last job. If managers tried harder to treat employees like human beings instead of children or were more compassionate about our needs instead of their profit, it would make going to work a fun thing to do.
Golden Corral worked with me on scheduling. I have 5 kids at home, one I was recently pregnant with. While I was pregnant and working they made accomadations for me to contiue working there without risking the health of my baby. I am really excited to go back to work soon. I was a server so making cash everyday definetly helped with so many kids. Anything could pop up, field trips, pictures and I would have the money to provide it because I got cash everyday. The managers were very understanding and compasionate. And our regular customers were some of the best people I have ever met... some of them even brought in baby shower gifts for me. My baby shower was also thrown for free by the management and staff. They have been exceptional to me and my family.
