Working at Bobby O'Brien's provided me with the skills that I needed to start out in the industry. It is a fast paced environment, especially in the summer months. During the training process you work with a couple different servers, you shadow them and work up to being able to serve a table yourself. The management makes sure that everyone is on their toes and keeping busy. If they feel you are not preforming your daily tasks to the satisfaction of themselves as well as the guests, they will take the time to retrain you. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with your sections (as sometimes they are quite large), and ensuring that all your guests are satisfied, while abiding by you Smart Serve. Guests can get upset, and cause a scene if you cut them off from alcohol, so that is something you should be prepared for before getting into this industry (it happens at EVERY restaurant). Be prepared for long hours,and a lot of time spent on your feet.
You can make really great friends while working a Bobby's, everyone was treated as family while I worked there. You were well looked out for by all staff and management.
