If you’ve ever wondered what pay for Golden Corral employees looked like, you may be disappointed to find out that it’s not as great as you may have assumed. According to Payscale, the beloved buffet restaurant delivers an average hourly pay of $5 for those that are servers, while cashiers make an average of $9 per hour. Bakers and cooks receive around the same amount with their pay being $11 and $12 an hour, respectively.
Restaurant managers on the other hand have an estimated range of $9 to $17 per hour and kitchen managers have a shorter range of $10 to $15 per hour. The estimated range for restaurant assistant managers is $9 to $14, while assistant general managers are bringing in anywhere between $14 and $23 an hour and hospitality managers just $12 to $21, according to Payscale.
If you were looking for more of a yearly breakdown for some of those managerial positions though, Indeed has restaurant managers listed as making roughly $49,593 per year and assistant managers at $36,998. And for hospitality managers, you can look forward to making around $47,007 per year. Let’s just hope that free food comes with the job for servers though to make up for the lack of hourly pay.
