He was also there for all my questions and concernes. My co-workers was also great they help me In my training and was good team players. The hardest thing on the job was keeping up In a fast pace enviorment and the most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with customers and seeing my tips increase.

Pros: free pancakes, great managment
Graveyard shift was rather quiet, a typical nite would be to start breakdown of the majority of the kitchen while maintaining both cooking and cleaning responsibilities. Here Id say the most valuble thing I learned was learning to hon my cooking skill set to better my chances at improving myself in the kitchen. Hardest part of the job was the bar rush. – more... Most enjoyable part was I worked in a small town an knew everyone who worked there. – less
