Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work and incentives. As someone who is now about to graduate with a degree in Accounting and Management and having experienced the staffing of Melting Pot, you guys can definitely become a more lean and efficient operation. Having so many people on staff is expensive and quite frankly a waste of the employees' time. Look for people who will be able to work a set schedule, fill your needs, and then hire a few part-timers to have on reserves.

    Pros

    The work schedule is flexible. Is perfect for a student looking to earn some money through a part time gig.

    Cons

    The cons are that it is a job in the food service industry. Living off of tips is the most frustrating part of the job. Most customers do not grasp the concept of tip sharing systems that most restaurants feature. Large bills = large tip out (usually 2.5-5.5% of total revenues. Not tipping on 15-20% of the bill is completely unacceptable. But it happens often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-investment is key. GM's need to get owners to fork over the necessary cash to keep the restaurant running effectively.
