Education Fund
Golden Corral Corporation is committed to helping our company-operated restaurant hourly employees achieve their educational goals. The Connie M. Maynard Education Fund provides interest-free loans to our restaurant team member to help with education expenses. Loans range from $1,000 to $2,000 and can be used for any educational expenses such as tuition, books and supplies or room and board.

To be eligible to apply, team members must work 600 hours during the 12-month period immediately preceding the deadline, and have a 2.5 grade point average or GED. Recipients of loan awards who return as full-time employees after completing degree requirements will be forgiven the amount of their loan at a rate of $200 per month for each month of continued full-time employment. Applicants will be selected based on several factors including academic achievement, potential to succeed, education and career goals and work experience.

*The above detailed benefits are for eligible individuals employed at corporate or company-operated restaurants. Golden Corral franchisees may offer different benefits for their employees.

Golden Corral utilizes E-Verify in all company-operated restaurants as part of the hiring process.

*Golden Corral franchisees operate as independent business owners. If you apply and are hired for a restaurant team member opportunity with a Golden Corral franchisee, you would be an employee of that Golden Corral franchisee and not an employee of Golden Corral Corporation. Team Member opportunities are available at both company and franchise-operated restaurants, which are specified within individual job postings.
