A fast-paced, busy and high-end restaurant environment
Host Manager/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – 19 April 2013
I have worked at The Boathouse for close to four years. It's incredibly fast-paced and steady throughout the year. I was a hostess/admin. assistant and the hours were never sparse, the management is amazing and it was a very important job to have. I have always felt like a part of "The Boathouse Family" and was comfortable within the restaurant with the people I worked with. The hardest part of my job was the clientele. The customer base consists of your regular restaurants diners, but with a serious attitude. I am proficient in customer service, and I have never encountered the kind of entitled, rude and demanding guests that this restaurant caters to. However, the setting is beautiful and the food is amazing. I think it is a great place to work, especially if you have thick skin.
family atmosphere, great pay, good management, small business
rude clientele, long hours, no week-ends off
