A rather busy and stable but stagnant workplace
Dishwasher/Busser (Former Employee) – Okemos, MI – January 7, 2017
I honestly thought I'd have a great first time there as my very first job. I was sadly mistaken. Once there I was immediately assigned to dishwashing and bussing because that was where everyone starts at (according to the manager). I don't think she entirely lied, but that also wasn't the truth. Lots of the employees were started on the cashier, the kitchen, cooking, and outright to management positions. But that wasn't bad. At least not as bad as the positions themselves. I don't know about my co-workers, but when I asked to train for a different position the first time, she told me "Thanks, I will consider it". Every other time I asked she diverted the question away. Also, I realized that the cashiers never really greeted anyone who came in. Most of the time they spoke in a flat tone. I KNOW that's not what employees should do for business.
Sanitation was also an issue, even with us ALL pitching in after hours. Everyone worked hard, but our manager appeared to overlook the same things usually. The hardest part of the job was actually having to leave those things be, which those things some customers actually noticed. Bad reviews followed, yet our manager still did nothing. Most enjoyable however, was the fact that it was relatively easy to work. Not much was expected of you other than fast and precise in the work place.
