Server/Bartender, Lexington, KY - March 2, 2016
I took this job due to its purported advertisement as a perfect job for college students. This could not be further from the truth. The shifts are very long, leaving little time for productivity outside work. The managers at the Lexington Airport are disorganized and too personally involved with one another. On numerous occasions, managers would complain to me about their personal relationships with other employees causing awkwardness and a tense environment. Furthermore, the managers are rarely in the restaurants during the day so if you have an issue with a customer it is nearly impossible to appease them in a timely manner. Lastly, there is no consistency in pay. It entirely depends on the time of year whether or not people are flying frequently. I would sometimes work a 10 hour shift and walk out with less than $50. This job is not worth it unless you can work full time.
