A new forum for alumni to share ideas
about challenges facing Marriott School graduates.
COMPANIES HAVE HELPED US redefine what benefits are. At the 5 & Diner, we offer traditional benefits such as health care and help with prescription drugs, but only to our managers. It would not be cost-efficient to offer our wait staff, who are primarily part-time, full benefits.
We offer benefits to some hourly full-time employees who have been with us for a long time. We also have a profit sharing program for those who have been with the company a year.
Many of our benefits come in the nontraditional category. We are more personal. We know our hourly employees' names, and they get to meet and actually voice their concerns with the owners. Our employees are able to go to the source and avoid the thick red tape often associated with larger companies. Also, promotions come easier because many times our hourly team members are more visible.
