Fast-Paced and Different

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Littleton, CO (US)

I worked at The Melting Pot part-time for less than a year

ProsGood employee discount
Good training period and instruction
Challenging compared to a typical restaurant
Fun and professional atmosphere
Allowed to park on-site

ConsNever really got to take a break
You and your car will SMELL like fondue for as long as you work there
Tough to get shifts at first

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Fondue Professional

Server (Current Employee)

I have been working at The Melting Pot part-time for more than a year


Pros: The work schedule is flexible. Is perfect for a student… 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.… Advice to Senior Management: Re-investment is key. GM's need to get owners to fork… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
