Pros: being the top person in the restuarant, the money, the people, the food
Cons: rude guests
Working in a restaurant is definitely a tough job... you are viewed as literally a servant to some people. Which is very aggravating at times. It is also very stressful. You have to be able to move very quickly and remember orders and multitask like no other. I would have a full lounge, bar, and well... but I always worked better under pressure. I loved being busy and getting my butt kicked. It's just so much more rewarding when you actually work hard for something. It is also rewarding... Or else so many of us wouldn't still be doing it. I had the pleasure of working with some pretty amazing people... We were (and still are) a family. We might of wanted to kill each other at times, but at the end of the day we always had each others back. Which is a pretty rare thing at some jobs. I also had the pleasure of Bartending for some amazing guests as well. For the most part, I got paid to hang out with people. Don't get me wrong, some guests are rude and disrespectful but that's just part of it. I managed a few times as well... I had some pretty great managers that I learned from. Being there for five years, we were more friends than anything. (which isn't always a good thing) They are some of the best people and it was a pleasure to work for such a caring, giving, and kind group of managers.
