Yeah,your right you can get SSI good check too ! The with that you can get free Medical care, food stamps and all kinds of benefits and you don't have to pay a baby sitter or you don't need a car either. If the business's around here paid more than slave wages a person could afford to work. If someone did work up there I'd say they could not do math and they apparently cant figure out it cost more to work for a slave driver than to stay at home. Just go take a look at the houses these slave drivers live in while paying these girls a pittance sum of money. Thats how they make all their money off the backs of their workers. A nickle at a time.

Have you been in the Salem Dairy Queen lately.That places goin down hill.They have no help and the ones they have don't know what they doin.I know at least 3or more have quit in less than 2 months.same 2 always there.They arent even themseles cause they work too much...management needs to open their eyes and do something.

I myself like Cottage Corner. People just need to not be in such a hurry. sit back relax and enjoy your time out having dinner with your families. it may take longer getting your meal but it's always good food. The workers there are all hard workers and if someone quits that just puts that much work on the ones there because you can't hire someone that fast....
so just be patient and give the waitress a extra smile so they can enjoy their day!

Angel...you should be a "Angel" and not start rumors about the owner. I can't believe the owner was messing around with anyone. worked there or not...that's B-S.

the same reason they talk about every business owner in Salem its called jealousy and they can't stand for someone to have a good life. they have w life that must ne boring to sit around and guess what's going on in someone else's life. Sad really. Through it all they Will have the karma kick them in the butt

the latest new is the manager is now gone they ran her off to after 16 years of service. From what i hear they threw her to the wolves. If i was a customer which i wont be anymore I wouldn't eat there with a owner that only cares about making money . And doesn't care about her employees .Its the staff that makes that restaurant not the owner they should all quit at the same time. I have never seen such a selfish act in my life. The manger did alot for her and someone else comes along and throws her out.yeah did I mention 16 years of dedicated service.what a shame i wish her teh best hope she lands a better job which i am sure she will. to all that is left run while u can.

Maybe they all have recently quit because they aren't in high school anymore, and they need other jobs because they don't want to waitress for the rest of your life.

I am going to say that I probably know a little more than the average person typing comments on here. Cottage Corner Staff is top of the line. They are hard workers and care very much about their customers. I am not sure why when someone ever leaves a job that it has to be negative. Did anyone think that maybe the manager just needed a change? Maybe looking for insurance, benefits, etc.?(You really don't get that in a small business - ask anyone.) But you do get other benefits. I know first hand that nobody works around our schedule like their boss. I refuse to say anything bad. Can't believe that people put rumors out on this page. Everyone there including the ex-manager are good people. Change has to happen and people have to deal with it. Sometimes it sucks and sometimes it is for the better.
Peace- Love

This topic page amazes me how some people can use it only for gossip... that's the pot calling the kettle black. I grew up in the restaurant business and know the hard work that it takes. Very few people can take the hard work that it requires so people work for a short time and quit. Is it a high paying job? No. Is it hard work? Absolutely. Very few people last long. But to try and drag the owners name through the mud? Those of you without sin, cast the first stone! How judgemental! God knows her heart... Who are any of you to judge? You all should be ashamed of yourselves!
