This was the first real line cooking job that I have had. the hours were terrible but I was young when I worked there so I would stay up all night anyway. It takes a different kind of person to work in a restaurant. We wouldn't get off of work till 1 am sometimes. definitely not a bad job for someone in their youth, I was 18-19 when I worked here.

At joes Crab shack I learned to be a hostess. It was my first job working in a restaurant where you have to be fast paced and able to communicate with the customers. I loved when we got to do birthday games with our customers and also dancing for them.

Loved the variety of personalities on the team, I enjoyed working here because the staff was very welcoming to me and I felt right at home. Although my personal circumstances didn't allow to complete a full year I would've loved to do so.

I began working with Joe's Crab Shack when I was sixteen. I am now 26 and a recent graduate from the University of Maryland. As excited as I am to take on the next chapter of my life with a new career I am also sad to be leaving such a great company.

I met great people working for the short time I worked at Joe's Crab Shack. My managers were awesome. I learned a lot about how to work with people. The hardest part of the job for me was figuring out what buttons to push on the register in all honesty. The most enjoyable was the people and the environment.

Joes crab shack has to be one of my most favorited joes ever. The dances we did made the day go by faster, the customers we've encountered would always enjoy themselves and the food is GREAT. ALSO the pay was mighty great..
The restaurant was a busy fun place to work. I typically waited up to eight tables a shift. I learned hoe to stay organized while wildly multi tasking. The co workers have a great team attitude. The hardest times was when the eatery was slow with little business. Best days are when it was so busy the wait would be up to two hours. It was exciting to learn how to keep up with the pace.

My biggest complaint is Management is always changing. During my 2 years there I worked for 5 different managers. Each one ran the place different and each one made the same error never introduced themselves just started giving orders.
