I gained most of my knowledge of front and back of house through this position, therefore affording me more opportunities. I would recommend a restaurant job to anyone going through schooling and needing extra finances.
I worked there for a few years and moved up quickly. The stress and long hours of the job quickly took over my life, and I was barely able to spend any time outside of work. Trying to negotiate a salary that reflects your work is like pulling teeth, and kitchen workers are constantly treated like a drain on labour costs while they are also expected to carry the restaurant on their backs.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. Managers are useful and helpful. Great kitchen staff and everyone is a team player. Uniform is professional and staff meals are delicious. The hardest part of the job is when you have a full section of 12 tables and more, but the easiest part is that everyone is helpful.

I got the job through friends and it started out good. But management is weak and there’s no team work, even if they say so. I had no free time and was exhausted mentally for working non stop, being scheduled more then what wasleagal and being called in when I wasn’t needed . They caused me a lot of pain mentally with rude comments from other servers and managers, even if it may not have intended to be hurtful
The cost of living is expensive. although I have only received a few paycheck I don't think it is enough to live off of. however, the work environment is amazing. i am working with kind, dedicated and kind people. you definitely get a sense of family at the restaurant.
Working with Milestone I learned how to excel better within the serving industry along with widening my Bartending skills! It was a very organized place of work, from the uniforms to the way the food was placed on a plate and I quite enjoy organization!
