Pros: Great $$$, Good food, discounts on food while working, excellent training.
Cons: Long, unpredictable hours.
Working at East Side Mario's was some of the best days of my life. The staff was close knit, and the customers were awesome. It is important to realize that ESM is more high pace than most places, with its 'All you can eat' feature keeping you on your feet at all times. The opportunity to make extra cash tips was the best part about this job. It was extremely rewarding in other ways as well, making friends with the staff and regular customers. The hardest part of working here was the stress factor that comes along with any job in the Food and Beverage Industry.
Working at East Side Mario's taught me so much. Patience, excellent communication and customer service skills, how to deal with conflict, work in a fast pace environment, and much more. You work your way up in this job, starting as a Hostess to get the training down, and then usually having the opportunity to move up to Server or Bartender.
