Pros: working with great staff and food
Cons: wearing a hairnet
Workers know the role they play in the kitchen so its generally a routine that you follow. I Iearned a lot about how a kitchen is ran, from dishwashing all the way up to cooking. Management was professional but also friendly. Work was pretty straight forward, you know what your there to do but occasionally you will be asked to go above and help out – more... in other areas in which this great staff were willing. – less
Company was very structured but managers were not easy to get along with
