Productive day at SmokeyBones
Server (Current Employee), Bowie, MDJune 24, 2015
Pros: Meeting new people everyday.
Cons: leaving work extremely late.
A typical day at work is very busy,answering phones taking orders delivering orders. Speaking to guest 24/7 seating them at their proper tables in the correct formation. There is never a time for a break,sometimes we are short of staff and have to work twice as hard . Majority of the time it is very busy especially during lunch and late night specials. The most enjoyable moments is speaking to different people from different cities and countries. While working in a restaurnt I learned many things I became suffcient in a fast paced environment; sufficient in written, verbal and interpersonal communication; excellent in time management, decision making; and has the ability to handle emergency situations with poise and sensitivity.

Server/Greeter (Current Employee), Sanford, FLApril 30, 2015
Pros: Half off lunches, being around people and getting to talk.
Cons: No benefits, pay wasn't great.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the people that I got to work with. They were all great people and excellent coworkers.

The hardest part about the job was the money. I couldn't financially live off of what I was making there.

I learned that every person with different with very different preferences and I've gained excellent customer service skills.

Typical work day
Food Expediture (Current Employee), Columbus, GADecember 26, 2014
Pros: friendly environment
Cons: few hours
A typical workday at Smpokey Bones includes the resposibility of managing other employess as well as food orders as given to the servers from the guest in their desired form. To be successful at this job, one has to possess fine memory skills as well as quick, active hands. The hardest part of the job is having to prioritize meals which have reached a high in-take time in order to ensure that the guest are still satisfied.

Very Productive and laid back
Server (Former Employee), Montgomery AlDecember 9, 2014
A typical work day was serving customers and cleaning specified areas. I learned to be a team worker and to get along with a team of people. Management was very understanding and down to earth. The hardest part of the job were trying to give 7 tables at one time your undivided attention. The most enjoyable part was making many hungry faces smile and being the best server possible to every single table.
