Pros: the guests, engaging with them on a day to day basis and building relationships, building relationships with my co-workers, that was most enjoyable for me.
Cons: management, they way we were treated by them
Working at Texas Roadhouse, I learned how to be efficient, listen, patience, working in a high demand and stressful environment. A typical day of bartending would include setting up the entire well with ice, juices, salt and sugar, making batches for frozen and rocks margaritas. Taking care of guests, engaging with them, making mixed drinks, pouring – more... beers, taking orders, some of which was all at the same time. I learned a lot from this job. I loved the people I worked with but did not enjoy the people I worked for. They did not value their employees at all. It's very sad because they made us feel like we were all replaceable, when I think that in a working environment, employers should value us and not make us feel horrible when we make mistakes. Every one makes mistakes. It's human! – less
