Cashier/Barista (Former Employee), Manhattan, NYNovember 20, 2014
Pros: free lunch, health benefits, union
Cons: short breaks
Working with restaurant associates has helped me grow as an individual but as well as a professional level. Being a cashier meant interacting with customers everyday all day. This helped me build my confidence in building relationships with our customers as well as clients. I began to understand their needs and provide them with what they wanted before they can even ask. This was good for business because their transactions would not take long, we also knew our customers well enough to know what they wanted. My co-workers helped me improve with my patience as well as being able to become a team player in any environment I might find myself in. The hardest part of the job was leaving. I would have been more productive in a more challenging position. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and being able to turn someone's day around with a smile so that they'll be able to return the next day.

There are difficult moments.
Chef (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAOctober 17, 2014
Pros: i can work right through and work to completing my tasks.
Cons: late nights are affecting my health in a few areas and marriage life.
I will have to take some responsibility in the present state of what I think of the company but wholly, I am not one hundred percent happy. I am working now with my second Executive Chef, he and I do not see things in a like manner. I am working on this but I do know that being on the overnights for fours years now is having a major affect on me physically, emotionally as well as mentally. To clear that last word usage up. I mean I am not very happy because don't have to energy to cope with things that seem to be unfair. It is also damaging my family life which I miss so much. I have made mistakes but I have also owned up to them as well. I would like to say more but to do so is to complain. I well stop now. Much of what I do I production for the next breakfast and lunch service. The new chef sees that my work load is not much so now I do much of the cleaning along with the second shift chef. I will say that I am being challenged by the new chef and this I like, a little. The way in which he approaches is off putting to most. I let much of the way he speaks slide past so I do not react to quickly. Many of my co-workers are friendly people but others aren't true to their word. The hardest part is coming in to a kitchen that I have to clean when many things should have been handled sixteen hours before my next shift. One of the true thing I enjoy is the quiet of working at night but I am really to leave.
