Super competitive environment, the other servers and hostesses would go behind your back to management and complain about you being inefficient, when you were doing your job properly. Constantly scolded by management, was made to do the server’s jobs without tips, I was promised to become waitstaff upon hire and it never happened.
Other staff were lazy and would pawn off their work to you at the first chance they got. Wasn’t able to start on time, was kept back 2-4 hours when I wasn’t listed as closing. Management would leave before me and without telling me, but wouldn’t have anyone stay who could let me clock out.
Staff were always hungover, servers couldn’t take more than 4 tables. I would ask for more hours, but never got more than 9. They hired me because they thought I was in high school (under 18 - I was 19) gave me no more than 9 hours a week. The 14 year old got 25+ hours. If you didn’t fit the mold, you weren’t welcome.
