Don't take the 'UTILITY' job. (Dishwashing) Horrible and Alone
Utility (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – May 26, 2016
Didn't work here long after the shock of the strenuous amount of work I and I alone was responsible for.
- Utility (aka Dishwasher) - No equipment, absolutely manual handling of more pots and pans and heavy objects than you can imagine. I can speak of the closing shift but it's probably not much better during the day.
** Also includes all protein preparation, all chicken, etc. This job alone will take 2-3 hours.
In summary, a day is witnessing only yourself not able to pace yourself, the requirement of extreme diligence, scrubbing without break, you cannot afford a break, nonstop, until about closing time for meal service, 10pm, when you will be required to at least double time on already nonstop diligent breathless scrubbing and preparation, and lifting. That double time will be for the next hour and a half and will be absolutely horrible. I witnessed no help at all.
You will likely be the only one doing the nasty jobs (aside from maybe cleaning the restroom which I did not witness) and it will never end. You will wake up in the morning aching.
Hours were terrible. At first I got 2 days the first week, the second week was my regular schedule of 4 days. But the evening shift is 5pm to 11:30, do the math, that's not much to live on. And will be difficult to work around with other jobs leaving at 5pm.
6.5 hour day shifts. Ouch. And for the close to 11:30.
The only job worse than this was maybe repetitive 18 wheeler unloading nonstop at walmart for the same rate. That left me walkless for 3 weeks after the first day.
