Line cook, server, hostess, expeditor (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – March 3, 2016
A typical day at work is pretty hectic. I am constantly helping servers with their questions. After a long day, sitting at home, it is an adjustment to not be helping someone with something.
I am the major line of communication between the servers and cooks. The 2nd hardest part of the job is having to deal with tempers and people who want to argue with you about something. However, I would have to say that the hardest part of the job would be that it can be very stressful during the busy hours. Funnily enough, that can be the best part of the job as well. It feels really good after an 11 hour shift to know that upwards of $25,000 worth of food passed through my hands successfully. My coworkers are pretty easy to get along with and I have even made a few very close friends.
Management is pretty well trained especially the general manager who we all respect and love. His job is highly stressful and yet he always has our best interests at heart.
I have been at this job for 13 years and while it has been a good experience I would really like to move on, preferably using my degree I worked so hard for.
Great management, rewarding after a long day
Exhausting hours in a hot kitchen, not using my degree
