Pros: fun work environment, benifits.
The typical day at work was varied. If my supervisors needed me to come in early I would with no problem. The earliest I had to come in was 9:00am. The work was time consuming but not hard. Once done The Show Grill, outside of Trapper's Smokehouse, had to be ready by 1:45, that means all food needed to be out and ready to be cooked on the grill, the fire had to be already started 15-20 minuets prior to opening, cashiers, including myself, had to already have our tills counted out and set into the register 30 minuets prior to opening. The management style was a mix of the supervisors checking on us making sure we are following the rules and to make sure we all had breaks, and for us as a team to make sure we had all the supplies i.e. food, cups, plates, drinks, and to make the grill presentable i.e. no trash on the ground, no dishes behind the grill, wood stacked up neatly, all surfaces behind the grill clean, and crates for the bottled drinks out of site for the customers. The co-workers at the grill and inside the Smokehouse are a joy to work with. The hardest part is to clean the Show Grill, this includes drinks set into the crates and put away, the tub that we put the drinks must be dumped of all ice inside, the beer kegs must be taken out and put away, the drink/beer stand must be wiped off and cleaned, the countertops behind the grill must be wiped off and sprayed, the floor has to be swept before degreaser is applied to the floor and sprayed off, and above the grill must have degreaser applied and wiped off. The most enjoyable part of the job is the job itself, you get to work with awesome people, the work environment within Busch Gardens Williamsburg as a whole allows you to have fun and not that many places have that, and yes the work is hard but you know at the end of the day it was all worth it.
