Cons: short breaks, little to no benefits, management, no room for advancement, bias and favoritism, awful client base
Typically, I would go in for either a single or double shift. Single shifts lasted approx. 4-5 hours as a hostess. Double shifts lasted around 8-10 hours. The management was brusque, quick to judge, and not willing to help with most issues. I learned to manage my time and how to deal with situations that go awry, however I would not want to deal with the management again. They are inappropriate and unprofessional. They often invade personal space (emotionally) and judge you. The corporation cares more about making money than its actual employees. I have not known a single co-worker to enjoy their job the way they should be able to. My co-workers were (for the most part) determined to do well and free of drama. However, they were often terrorized by the management and led to quitting or the like. Even when working a 10 hour shift you could not eat a piece of bread without putting a coin into the cash register. They need to prioritize.
