Productive place to work but no room for advancement
Prep Chef (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – July 21, 2017
I would have love to stay on the team but i believe that the manager preferred men on the front line and he did appreciate me for my quality in how i prepped and prepared the food according to Mimi's Cafe standards.
Restaurant Manager (Former Employee) – Santee, CA – July 7, 2017
They have a good training system for new management. I learned a lot from this place, they had showed me behind the scend where we got our resources so we can explain to customer and understand the time line.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Elkridge, MD – July 4, 2017
A typical day at work for a hostess like myself included greeting customers, seating them at tables, cleaning tables, running food, and keeping the front of the restaurant clean and tidy. I learned how to manage my time efficiently. Management was ok, not great. The manager was not very nice. There was no positive reinforcement. Hardest part of the job was keeping the customers happy. The most enjoyable part of the job was my coworkers.
Server/Waiter (Former Employee) – Lakewood, CA – June 30, 2017
The management kept changing. Did not like this aspect of the job. Everything else was great. Tips were good. After some time the customer base started to dwindle though. The managment changing frequently made things a bit caotic.
Server (Former Employee) – Costa Mesa, CA – June 28, 2017
Good place to work and busy. Worked there for over three years and they were flexible with my schedule because I was attending school. I no longer work there because the location I worked at closed down in Costa Mesa. They have a lot of other locations.
Manager (Former Employee) – Bernice, LA – June 6, 2017
They shut down a few months of working there because of not getting enough business in a rural town. It was small little restaurant that once was cds but was bought out by another individual. It served country soul food and had really nice people. It just was in a small town where not many people passed through enough to get the business they hoped for.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Henderson, NV – June 2, 2017
A boring job if there isn't people coming in to eat. When it's busy you normally seat people in rotation of servers as fast as possible. If too busy, you will put people on the wait list and quote them a time of seating time. The hardest part of the job is when customers do not understand server rotation. The most enjoyable was making friends with my co-workers, it always make life easier
Hostess (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – May 24, 2017
Being a Hostess at Mimi's Cafe was a good summer job. The management was very nice and professional. I gain long time friendship from other hostess and the waiters. Working at Mimi's taught me how to better manage my time in a busy environment.
