Joey's is a fun place to work at and has a lot to offer such as learning and growing in the company.
I work in BOH as Line/Prep cook. My work hours at Joey is mostly evening with that being said I am reviewing on how a typical day at work in the evening at the station I work at.
First few things I do/check when walk on-line are: Protein, sauces, rice stock, and other items to see if I need to stock anything so that I don't run out of the items during peak times. Check the sanitation-water and change it if it is dirty. Clean up the station and make it look presentable for the night service.
About management: What I have learned from the experience while working at Joeys is you need to tell your leader/management that how good job you have been doing in order to be recognized and that's a little grey area because the other places I worked at where supervisor/manager come to you and tell you how good or bad you are at your job. But at Joey's leader/management only come talk to you if you are not performing at the expected level and get written-up for that.
Co-workers: Co-workers at Joey's are great. Specially with the ones you have been working when you first started.
Hardest part about the job is transitioning from day shift to night shift and the station is left terrible condition such as: Stocks is not at the par level, station is not cleaned, Sanitation water is not changed, Pasta water pot left unattended and its almost burning etc. and to top that you get hit with bills and you literally have nothing to cook those bills. Also when you are paired with new hire and you get told that they have been trained and know everything about this station but they are not even prepared and when you ask them to cook particular item and they don't know what goes in that particular item. In the end you are stuck with them and train them while putting put the food and spec test them at the same time.
Enjoyable part is the opposite of hardest part.
