UNDERPAID

Waynesboro, TN

#42 Jul 13, 2010
Yes it is true aboutIngrid Jones she is and was aDOPEHEAD METH.she WAS just released from FEDERAL PRISON FOR METH.Maybe she will change maybe all crooks will change but all the waitreses are underpaid.Most of them make 2 or 3 dollars an hour.I dont even see why they do it for so less money.But dont blame terry and his family at bradleys for Ingrid jones.Just look at the bright side at least terry gives criminals chances to work and does not judge them.I can also say the same about Micheal Francis at EMERALDS.They both are not judgemental people and give anybody a chance.But emeralds is the one that first started to get attacked on here.Maybe we need to raise the prices due to you ugly people talking about us.If you come in to emeralds after talking about us hope we do not know you food can get alot of bad stuff on it.Maybe it is becuase that our boss dont cater to the POLICE.Evertime you look out the door at emeralds you see cops everywhere at bradleys i wonder if they get a discount.We are not known at emeralds for a gossip place but you are BRADLEYS.

ok. I have had the pleasure at working at both Emeralds And am now working at Bradleys Restaurant! I have to say Michael And Glenda are both great to work with And for. Michael always puts a smile your face And he is like a clean freak! You just got 2 love michael And he will always talk to you And ask about the family everytime you see him. Glenda can make the best home made pizza in town And is also very friendly And caring. The both of them have worked so hard to make their restaurant the best. And they both work all the time its their life! And not only are they great employers but they are great people! They are a little slower than some of the other restaurants but its because they strive to be the best And about everything they have they make themselves. They make their pies, their Croutons, their dressings, their chicken salad etc.. And if you ever have a problem with them you need to speak to one of them! And i promise they will make it right! I have always said Emeralds is like the nicest restaurant in town And by that i mean the atmosphere its somewhere you would want to take your family that comes in from out of town And sit And have a nice quit meal!!!! Now on the other hand if you want some home cooked country food And quick Bradleys is the place. I haven't worked at Bradleys long but i do absolutely love my job, the people i work with And Terry And Carolyn. They are the most laid back people to work for And with And they both work extremely hard to make their business the best! They think of everyone as family their customers included And if you have ever eaten there you know that they come out And talk to their customers every chance they get! They in my opinion, and we all have our own opinion have the best steak And chicken strips in town!!!! But that's just my opinion And well if you have ever had their hot fudge cake it speaks for its self! As far as the waitresses at bradleys you will notice they are mostly older women And they work very hard because they have a family to support.

so really try to earn a great tip. Emeralds waitresses are mostly school kids. Not saying that's a bad thing cause they need to learn the value of a dollar too. And Glenda trains them to be the best. I know everything I learned about waitressing I learned from her! But with kids working they can't always pick up the slack or work 2gether. I have to say at bradleys we are like a team And do work 2gether. And we are always busy so apparently we do something right! Bradleys does have the advantage because we do have a buffet every day of the week And most every night of the week. So these people who are working can get theirs fast And get back to work! And as far as the Ones bad mouthing Ingrid Jones you obviously do not know her. I didn't know her til I started to work there but she is probably the hardest working waitress they have. She works every day And she is a mother to 2 very beautiful little girls that she takes care of! And if you want to know the honest truth she did do time for something she didn't do, the only thing she is guilty of is being with the wrong person at the wrong time but she wouldn't dare nark on them! That to me shows what a truly good person she is:-) And i believe everyone deserves a 2nd chance And she has definitely proved she is a great worker, friend And mother to me in the short time i have known her! As far as the bashing of restaurants in waynesboro every restaurant IN MY OPINION has something that is good about them And a reason you go to that restaurant! So whether it be for a good pizza a good steak or simply good service. I am happy to have each food service we have. Our town needs variety And places for people like myself to have the pleasure to work at! So please stop finding things wrong with every place And start talking about the good from each place so maybe just maybe when out of towners get on here And read they will come visit one of these places for the good. God knows all the businesses in wayne county could use the business!!!!

Ok so anyone that has commented & left horrible statements about any of the restuarants in Wboro needs to work in the business for just one week & realize what the work is like! First of all, I realize everyone has opinions but to post comments about family owned business that are working hard to support their families & feed their kids is a an all time low! As far as Stan goes, get back there & cook over the grill & you will sweat too! And for Ingrid, she was not in federal prison for meth & everyone deserves a second chance! She is in a lose lose situation b/c if she wasnt working then everyone would complain that she is living off the government! and Emeralds is a very nice restuarant that has good food & yes it may take awhile for service but like I said the work is hard! All the people making comments should just run down 2 WCB & speak to Martin Haggard & borrow money to open their own restaurant & then let everyone come in & rate it then get on the internet & post all the negative things so you can lose your butts. and I truly wish everyone would post their real names so the cowards would b known! This website is so stupid! Waynesboro has enuf problems before everyone started getting on this page!

Things are tough in Wayne County. Anybody who can get a business up and going and HIRES PEOPLE should be commended. Now, if you are a millionaire and paid $1000/ plate, and your dinner wasn't perfect and the celebrated guest speaker was a no-show, then you have every right to complain. But if you are sitting on your butt drawing a govt check, then go get a job there and show us all how its done and quit complaining.

I went to emeralds for the first time ever a few weeks ago during the little league playoffs in Collinwood. The service was very, very poor. It took a long time for them to take our order, then we waited and waited on our drinks and NEVER did get a refill!! The food was good, a little pricey though. Probably wont' stop again next time we are over that way.

Listen, everyone that hasnt ever worked at Emeralds Restaurant really just need to keep their damn mouths shut. Working with the public isn't always an easy thing, and half of the customers that come in to eat are extremely picky and we strive our hardest to please everyone that walks in that door. I work at two different restaurants. And Emeralds definitely has two of the best cooks ever, and I feel priviledged to have ever gotten to work with the two of them and eat their food. Michael and Glenda Francis. I couldn't say enough about them two. I love them two like my own dear family. and they treat me like a child, like Emeralds Fan said earlier. All i gotta say, is that if you dont like the food or the service.. then you definitely have NO taste at all and have no respect for others that work their asses off for you to be treated fairly!

I think all of our restaurants are good and am glad we have them, if we didn't we sure wouldn't have anything here in town, Mr. Francis is a good man,and so are the Bradley's, just had a Philly Steak sandwich from Bradley's, it was very good, also no one has said anything about Connie's, now there is some good food, I wish we had a good Buffet, and I know Bradley's has one and that's great, but if we had a Golden Coral,now that would be good, if we didn't have these places we sure wouldn't have any employment here.

I think you people that are talkin about Ingrid Jones need to go and get your bibles out. She may have been in prison for dope or whatever, but she has been forgiven by the one man that matters, GOD. Maybe you too should get down on your hands and knees and ask him to forgive you for the gossiping and criticizing.
