Pros: leadership responsibilities, one free meal per shift
Cons: management issues, no benefits, bad pay
I devoted my life to Boston Market. But they don't just want that... They want your soul. I don't mind busting my butt for my job... In fact, I rather enjoy working hard for something I'm proud of. However, I am only human. I enjoy (and deserve) some time off, some benefits, SOME appreciation, etc. Even as a crew member, Boston Market will make their management problems YOUR responsibility. Imagine that... Being forced to work as a manager and getting paid minimum wage.
Despite the managerial problems etc., etc., etc... I learned a great deal about customer service and management during my employment at Boston Market. I actually became a shift manger at a young age, the youngest one ever, due to my over-achiever and go-getter attitude. What I loved most about my job at Boston Market was that I was in charge. I called the shots, and when I was on location, I was the boss. I was a teacher, a mentor, a supervisor, the boss. I learned how to lead my coworkers responsibly and respectably, I learned to conduct a safe and clean working environment. I kept people there because I was there and when I was there, the restaurant was a better place.
