Great work environment with many wonderful customers.
Server (Former Employee) – Plant City, FL – January 19, 2016
I enjoyed my job at Fred's because I enjoy meeting and getting to know my customers. Although all of the co-workers sometimes wouldn't get along, we would always work everything out and continue working as a team to provide the best dining experience for our customers. I learned how to deal with difficult customers and how to approach a situation calmly but still in control, and I learned how to keep my customers happy with me to ensure that they will come back and see me. The hardest part of my job was certainly trying to pick up shifts and get more hours on my schedule, as I was a new server and did not have the upper hand like the servers that have been there for 3+ years. The management was also quite difficult for me, as I was always running into some sort of problem. I did get along with my managers quite well, but there were definitely a few flaws in the management system. What I enjoyed most about my job was not only the wonderful customers who made me look forward to going to work every day, but the wonderful family that I was working for. Overall, Fred's was a very enjoyable job and it provided a great work environment.
Buffet discounts, wonderful customers, flexible hours
Not guaranteed many hours, not great management
