Great workplace environment, Amazing community.
Pros: meeting new people
Cons: sometimes people get incredibly ignorant & rude
You come in 10-15 minutes before any shift. Relax wait to clock in, talk to who ever is already there. Catch up with the girls about what's going on. Clock in and start taking tables. Serve your customers to the highest standards, and always with a smile on your face.
I learned how to move up in a company and take up more responsibility. I learned how to believe in myself and that I could really do anything that I had set my mind to.
The people I work with are great! You aren't always going to get along with everyone you happen to come across, for the most part I get along well with everyone just fine.
The hardest part of the job is first starting out serving and learning how to take the occasional abuse that is thrown your way when talking to distraught customers. Of course not every customer is going to have the best time in the world. You can't please everyone, but you can try. It can be rough for the first little bit learning when to keep your mouth shut, but there are times when you need to stand up for yourself.
The most enjoyable part of the job probably has to be when you get those tables with the nicest people possible. You aren't in it for the tip then. You are in it to make their day and make sure they have a great time sitting in your section. If you happen to create a repeat customer then good on you, but if just by being yourself you happened to have made someones day, well that's the best part of my job.
