Dining Room Server (Former Employee) –  Richmond Hill, ON31 July 2017
A typical day at work for a dining room server would include working breakfast shift, lunch shift, or dinner shift, or any combination of them. You will gain valuable experience as a server in one of the better retirement homes out there. You will learn how to serve the elderly and provide excellent service. The hardest part of the job is learning to not sweat the small things and learn to deal with death. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with residents learning about them and their stories and making their day with excellent service.
The job starts you off above minimum wage as tips are not accepted. The job work/life balance can be very difficult as most shifts will be 3 hours long and often for new employees be 5-8 which is in the middle of the day. Also schedules are often released only 2 or 3 days in advance for a 2 week period so trying to plan your life ahead of time becomes very difficult.
There is no room for advancement at this workplace in the dining room as all higher positions are filled and will not be opening any time soon, and there is seniority hierarchy in place.
Overall it is a good place to work for a part-time position, suited to a student who needs the extra cash.
Pros
Free foods, easy work, friendly
Cons
scheduling issues
