A typical day can consist of arriving, opening shop, getting the line ready, and beginning serving the first guests. But that's not all, you have a community of people who enjoy the company of others, so it's inviting and great. Yes, it is a food job, but with the experience you get and how you use it, you can easily move to do great things.
Good accounting practices with well educated staff members.
Staff accountant (Former Employee) – Emeryville, CA – June 26, 2013
Well experienced company owning and managing over a 100 restaurants in several states. Management tries to maintain high quality food within reasonable costs. Privately owned primarily by one person who deals more in hotels and casinos than restaurants. but he has a passion for food and wants the best. I believe he has grown the restaurant company too fast and accounting could not maintain the accuracy and quality. Many people were terminated or quit. I reconciled bank accounts, gift cards, credit cards and posted journal entries to balance the General Ledger.
Italian Chophouse with great food and live entertainment.
Manager (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – January 20, 2013
The restaurant was in a recovery mode since being bought by a new owner. Service and food quality improved greatly. Lots of regular guests as well as convention visitors. The best part of the job was working with the staff and visiting with the guests. Confidence in the quality of the product was very satisfying. The only bad part of the job during service was when the kitchen got backed up and production times ran long. Being a scratch restaurant, this was unavoidable at times. Unfortunately, the restaurant was purchased again and closed by the most recent owner to make way for a new concept. My personal feeling about Tavistock as a company is that it is not a company that truly cares about the people who work for them. The turnover in management and chefs was an indication of this.
Busser (Current Employee) – Providence, RI – November 8, 2012
I have only had this job a few months. The staff is friendly and gracious. The environment is sometimes hectic and crazy but its a restaurant, what else is there to expect? The pay isn't great and the scheduling is less than par. Inconsistency in shifts.
