Hostess (Current Employee), Williamsport, PAAugust 13, 2014
Pros: 50% off, making new friends, being around the general public
Cons: pay is low, hours are not as much as i would like
A typical day at work is anywhere from 4-10 hours depending on what the schedule is. Showing up to work 15-30 minutes before the shift starts, clock in and begin the shift. During shifts we seat people, talk with guests, we have receptionist duties, and we help the servers if needed. This job has given me a lot more experience with the general public. – more... It has taught me to be very patient with people and to become more comfortable with communicating with guests as well as my co-workers. The management here is very good at helping and directing the workers here especially when help is needed. A hard part about the job is when dealing with the guests that seem to be unappreciative or rude, this job has definitely given me more experience with that and I am thankful because instead of getting frustrated I can help them more, give them more options, or ask for help. I love working closely with people and making new friends. This type of job has given me the experience I have wanted to get with the general public. – less

Server/Shift Leader (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAAugust 9, 2014
Pros: percentage off on food during shifts and off shifts
Cons: no breaks
Typical Day at Work: side work such as taking out trash, sweeping the kitchen area, putting up glassware etc. Always staying on top of your tables making sure area was clean and guests were happy. opening duties, depending on your job title you had certain duties, shift leaders had more work because we would have to come in early. closing duties we – more... would have to clean the whole front of the house to the back of the house to make sure everything was in order for opening shift the next day. Always a rush, especially on weekends. No time to sit and take breaks.

Co-workers: were like a family even through the rough times and frustration of customers.

Hardest part of the job: was closing up because by then you are tired and counting down the hours.

Management: was so-so could use more team building

Most enjoyable part of the job: was the fact that you get to meet a lot of different people and can also network. It's kind of like a stepping stone if you take advantage of the benefits because you never know who you'll meet. – less

Server (Former Employee), Newport News, VAAugust 4, 2014
Pros: friendly staff
Cons: overly friendly staff
Welcome to the cookie cutter restaurant business! This is where managers sleep with employees and do their side work for them; where a cook sleeps with everyone possible, spreading his herpes far and wide; where people play favorites. Basically, where your dignity goes to die.

Server, Coach, Expo, Host (Current Employee), Albany, New YorkJuly 29, 2014
I have worked here for 7 years. I am looking for something new. I would have to set up for success and exceed guests needs to make money. I am a trainer for servers and help them learn about Fridays. I have to suggestively sell drinks, appetizers, and desserts. Management is okay they don't really praise you on a good job you have done. The turn over – more... rate for managers is a lot as well. My co workers do not know how to use team work. I would say the hardest part of the job is dealing with some difficult tables and them getting mad at me for their food being cooked wrong or no to their liking. – less
