Pros: friendly work environment
Cons: little benefits, low wages, low hours, horrible management
Everyone you worked with was a friend/family, which helped for great teamwork and overall atmosphere of the workplace. I would start all of the stoves, friers, presses, and lights first thing in the morning, then as the line cooks arrived we would spend the whole day cooking, stocking, and prepping as a team, helping out anyone who needed it (station jumping). The management was horrible due to a constant change in management members and the managers they hired had little to no experience. The hardest part of the job was the struggle to get hours, as well as the no benefits/ no incentives. It is not a permanent job for anyone who has established family, dependents, or a mortgage to pay.
