While this is more of an upscale restaurant, the people working here did not reflect that as much. It was quite difficult working here all the time but it paid the bills.

Moxies was a great work environment for a server. Clientele could be sub-par at time but the job culture and energy of the staff there is truly a morale boost on slow nights.

I worked at Moxies Courtneypark and loved everything about it. The management were amazing, coworkers became lifelong friends, and everyday included something new and exciting. Moxies as a whole definitely takes care of their employees, and makes it a point to put special effort into their company.

Typical casual restaurant work environment. Most employees are 20-25. Busy lunch rush, the rest of the day is okay. Weekends are typically mediocre. Work day starts either at or after 11:30 or 4 usually.

Working at Moxie's was disappointing. I expected a lot more out of a successful chain restaurant in regards to how staff is treated. Several of the male management team members often gave write ups for not wearing makeup or having styled hair.
Pros
great money
Cons
everything else

Had some great times and it taught me more than most of my other jobs. After this experience I will push my kids towards working in the food service industry.

A typical day at work would be opening the restaurant and bar and getting it prepped for revenue. I would be highly involved with communicating and dealing with guests in all situations. At the end of the day I deal with balancing out tills with end of day sales and labour. I entering information into the data base as well. I have learned to become an excellent multi-tasker and how to work closely with others. The hardest part of my job is dealing with unhappy guests. The most enjoyable part of my job is the fast paced environment.
Pros
tips
Cons
long hours, working weekends and evenings

Moxie's menu is simple and straight forward, they feature the seasons and are consistent with their dishes. The crew is great to work with and they will treat you respect, if you respond in kind. I learn many things from Moxie's and developed my interest in cooking and learned many different techniques that are useful to me to this day. I enjoyed working at Moxie's mainly because of the crew, management and the easy to learn menus.
Pros
Great staff, Good food.
Cons
Demanding work for those who don't love it

I have never ever been belittled and spoken down to the way the owner spoke to me ever. He is very rude and thinks way too highly of himself. NO respect for people at all. The managers of BOH and workers are great and fun place to work at except for the owner. Moxies Argentia
Pros
none
Cons
owner

As a hostess my typical day at work would consist of, if opening, performing and completing all the opening duties on "Opening Duties Checklist" - i.e. cleaning and restocking bathrooms, making sure all menus are sanitized, vacuuming carpets at front entrance, wiping down glass doors, dusting wooden ledges around front area and wooden areas in dining room, completing floor plans, transferring reservations from binder to the computer system, etc. As a closer, duties on "Closing Duties Checklist" are completed. During the shifts, as a hostess, I was responsible for answering telephones, taking reservations, and directing calls to correct correspondences. Also, I helped run food to tables during peak hours which allowed me to learn the dishes served at the restaurant. Furthermore, I opened doors for guests as they entered and left the building, to enhance their dining experience. Besides taking on the role of shift coordinator, I sat guests at opened tables and informed them of daily drink features. The hardest part about the job was busing and setting tables within 60 seconds especially during peak hours. The most enjoyable part of the job, was getting to interact with different kinds of people during the shifts I worked. As a dining room/lounge server, I'd come in to work and initially check the daily feature board. Soon after, a shift huddle was conducted by the manager on duty where expectations of the shift were discussed. After the shift huddle, I would go over to the side-during shift/closing duties listing and check my duties. During the shift, I would serve tables as - more...
Pros
Interacting with new and regular guests (customers).
Cons
Walking around for 8, or more, hours in heels.
