Manager & Event Manager, Server, Bartender (Current Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – June 7, 2016
For working, adapting and learning on a daily basis. Your day will encounter just like any restaurant many ups & downs in regarding the tempo of the establishment. Also, ensuring great service at all times,and giving genuine care not only to guest but staff members as well.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – January 26, 2016
I loved my co-workers they are all very friendly and its very easy to make friends there. I loved meeting new people and getting to really know the regulars that should up there to eat. Holidays was always the hardest part there because you would have to be there all day and miss out on your family dinners and have to deal with the inpatient guest that would show up on the holidays.
CORPORATE BAR MANAGER (Former Employee) – Miami Beach, FL – March 22, 2016
High intensity atmosphere all depending on your location though. Wine knowledge is an absolute must to be successful. Great training program to get those who don't know much to a better understanding of how to sell wine.
Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – November 8, 2015
A typical day at Texas de Brazil would consist of coming in at 10 a.m to start the ground work for the opening of business. Four hours allotted time is given to have prep work completed. Working in a kitchen at an 5 star restaurant can be very loud and busy.
At the end of dinner service, co workers were able to eat as much picanha as we wanted.
It has been so far a great school for me and they had given me several opportunities for me to grow as a professional.
Corporate Training Manager (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – April 18, 2016
Everyday, once I start my shift I have to expect anything, there is always a new challenge for a new day, expecting to be multitasking. Doing walk thrus and checking staff members that are on the clock and ready to begin. Quality control on food items. checking last shift's sales and prepare a pre-shift with FOH staff members, we set a new goal on sales for the day and start fresh with the best of attitude. Then, checking labor % during our shift. I have learned how to be patient, calm and a good listener when it comes to guests concerns and during any employee situation. The hardest part of the job has been confronting some delicate situations when it comes to personal issues that may have been affecting work related situations. The most enjoyable part of my job is when me and my team see good results regarding our sales goals and tat is what it keeps us going further and motivated/focused.
free lunches, schedule flexibility
no breaks, meaning we just sit eat and go back to the floor.
Carver (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 18, 2015
A typical day at my job is a smooth day with customers. I have learned to better communicate with people at my job as well as customers. The management is very friendly and kind with both customers and employees. The same can be said about my co-workers as they are driven and very hard working. The hardest part of my job would be working in the heat of the kitchen. The most enjoyable part of my job is communicating with the clients and having them leave with a smile.
Bartender (Current Employee) – Addison, TX – May 25, 2015
I am a bartender so i deal wiht making drinks for the whole establishment as well for people that come and sit at the bar area. I have learned many things like handling large amount of money, multitasking, and people skills. My co-workers are good people. Management is also ok but our general manager is not so well dealing with situations under pressure. He lashes out at anyone and everyone. The hardest part is finding a balance with all the multitasking.
Working at Texas de Brazil was a fun experience. Started as a Hostess (phone calls, seating people and making sure all servers had equal number of guests were some of my responsibilities) and worked my way to be a Server. Very fast paced restaurant, had to learn how to sale and a lot of people skills. Working with people can be very hard, so patience is key to be successful. Got to work hard and be organized to keep everybody satisfied. Can say I liked it, was a great challenge and am ready to the next step.
a lot of commitment to end up dealing with favoritism
