Fast paced work environment.
Cover Manager/Trainer/Line Cook/Server (Former Employee) – Altoona, PA – December 26, 2017
A typical day depended on the position I held that day. If in the kitchen, I would be prepping , line cooking, and cleaning. If my position was serving, I would be serving guests, working with the kitchen on food orders, and doing side work. If I was cover managing my job would be to attend to guests, as well as front and back of the house staff. In addition I would be providing help in the kitchen, handling end of night reports, and overseeing operations. I learned how to work in the front of the house for the first time in my 20 year career in the industry, giving me the chance to experience managing the dining room. Eat n' Park is a high volume restaurant, where speed is needed to move tables in and out quicker. The hardest part of the job was not being able to have any creative outlet. Everything at Eat 'n Park has to be the same as all other franchised restaurants. The most enjoyable part of my job there was the people that I worked with.
Free meal for kitchen employees.
Benefits and advancement was lacking.
